I am thinking about going with a lighted sidemount plate. I know some of you have done this already, so I am looking for suggestions on "how-to" hide the wires running back into the bike. Thanks for the help...John
Got a pic of your handiwork?CW-VRod said:My Plate mount is mounted on the bottom shock bolt. I took the wire to the inside of the swingarm and used self adhesive (very small) clips to hold it to the swingarm till i got to the center of the swingarm (middle of the tire but on swingarm). There is that piece of plastic that (inner fender?) that goes between the gas tank and the tire, I ran the wire behind that and up to the chase where the other wires come up thru (under the seat) and ran it wiht those to the rear of the bike where the original plate light was and tied into that.
I'm going the same route, but I'm using this to run from the side mount through the swingarm and up behind the fuel cell. Should be installed by end of the week, will post a pic when done.CW-VRod said:I re-wired my side mount plate today. Thru the swing arm and it looks much better.
Hey John - how's that stuff look on the bike, or have you done it yet? Mine arrives Tuesday.jcolodny said:Chris sent me to a store he found on the Internet, it turned out to be about 5 miles from my house. They have lots of wire hiding products (loom, shrink tube, etc.). I bought a few samples from them, maybe we'll start a new thread on covering exposed wires.
