I have an 08dx with dogs arse removed. I went to Autozone and bought a 2 pack of license plate lights, painted one black, made a bracket and mounted it by rear turn signal. Wired it into plate wiring under fender. Nice and bright, shines right down on plate and no worries about routing wires...

The plate lights are the kind that have a threaded stud to use in place of license plate bolts. It's cylindrical, about inch long with threaded post. If anyone wants a pic, let me know as I don't know how to post in this thread.

if you click post reply, down below the "reply to thread" section is an "additional options" area and you can click manage attachments, then add the photo.

If its on a website or something (tinypic) then you can just like the insert image button on the reply to thread section (it looks like a mountain and sun with a yellow background).

Hope that helps ya

Wouldn't mind a nice "How to" picture guide of this myself. I'm sure I could figure it out but why fiddle around for a couple hrs when I can learn from others fiddling around before me!

Depending on the version, what I ened up doing (and it worked out well), is I have a VRSCB 2005 and I know there was some small changes in the swing arms but anyhow, There was a small (1-1.5") rubber plug on the end inside facing part of the swing arm, there I pulled that plug and poked a hole with a pocket screw driver and on the tire side of the inside of the swing arm there was a larger plug (about 6") three, took that one out and poked another hole. Fished the wire through one end to the other and I didn't even need to secure it anywhere. Fed the cable up behind the short inner fender and up under the seat, threaded it through the same area as the rear light wire harness, there you have it. Pictures (the best I can do) to follow.
