Yea, I have my shock-mounted plate installed but am still scratching my head for a good way to run the wires all the up to the top of the rear seat.

Just did the same on mine, easy to do. Makes for a clean set up.

I did the same. Through the swingarm and up through the center tapping into the wiring harness at the rear.

I currently have mine on the right side and just ran the wires down the brake line and then up between the gastank and the firewall.

aaahhhhhhh, the photos help a lot. I guess that's what I'll have to do. Thank you very much for finding that post, thumbsupracing.

I also cut out the axle cover so it forms around the plate mount bracket.

This is the exact same plate I was looking at but was afraid of the bracket's width at the axel mounting point since I only see about 1/4" of thread left on the axel between the nut and the retainer clip on my 2012 VRSCDX. Is that about what you had on your axel and ground the plate mount to roughly a quarter inch??

Looks mega tight by the way and is exactly the look I'm after!
