Anyone know of a good sidemount plate for an 07 DX. I really would like 1 that mounts the plate sideways. I found some in chrome. Just wondering if anyone knows of a nice black one before I buy chrome and head to the powdercoater.

take a look in my gallery. I have one on my SE. It is originally designed for a Dyna. You don't use the bracket that comes with it, and just drill out the mounting hole for the lower shock bolt instead. I will be putting the same thing on my DX powdercoated in black. It doesn't have a brake light, but it does have a strip of white led's down the side of it to light it at night.

got my black side mount from ghost rider customs here on the forum. looks great, simple. the wires are a pain in the ass though. i imagine it is the same with any plate.

In my gallery there is a side mount bracket that I made and had chromed. It fits on the lower shock bolt. The license plate frame and back plate can be mounted horizontally or vertically. The frame and back plate are Arlen Ness parts. Although any frame and back plate could work. It is also wired for a license plate light .

I bought one from GRCUSTOMS.com and I don't care for it. It looks alright but the wiring is difficult and does not leave you any option to replace the license plate except cutting the wires and starting over again with the install.
Also it has two bullet lights that resemble running lights and do not do an adequate job of lighting the license plate.

It's just not what I was looking for.

I was going to give you a picture of my install but I can figure out how to show a black frame on a black background. The only thing that shows in the picture I take is the license plate.

Yes it is. For the money they want it doesn't even include the screws needed to mount it to the bracket. I had to go to the harware store and pick up some SS screws to attach them. Also, I had to chop up my brand new personalized plate to get it to fit into the opening. Aren't all the plates in the US the same size? You would think they would be able to make it the correct size. Other then that I love it. :D

Mine came with all the mounting hardware.I did have to hack the crap out of my plate though.You also have to be careful walking around it with shorts,the points are a lil sharp
