Default Rear Fender Mod

I have been wanting to modify the inner rear fender and move the license plate up directly underneath the taillight. I looked around but didn't see any mods that kept the stock turn signals.

So on a whim last night, I decided to go at it. It was really pretty easy. I removed the whole inner fender and removed the light for the license plate. I used a Dremel with a plastic cutting blade to chop off the fender just below the blinkers. Then, I cut the housing for the taillight so it was flush with the rest of the fender, thus leaving a rectangular hole where the light used to be.

Drilled a few holes for the plate and voilą. Cheap, looks decent, and I got to keep my stock signals.

I ordered a set of Custom Dynamics Tag Bolts to illuminate my plate. Will wire them with the stock wires for the original light. Just thought I'd share.ImageUploadedByMO Free1352588795.871191.jpgImageUploadedByMO Free1352588807.233172.jpg

I went all the way, but it was done within a week of me getting the bike.

Nice mod and still have the turn signals.....I am sure it is one of the first of a long list of things you will do...this bike likes being 'attended to'...

It was one of my first mods. Looks good! I recently went to an integrated tail light and side mount plate. Having trouble with the Clear Alternative tail light (bought before reading the sound advice of the brotherhood), but overall I am very happy with the mod.

I still dig the look of yours, which keeps the original signals, though. I forgot how big the stock setup was, as depicted in your before pic! No wonder most of us chopped that thing - after the water heater that is!

Happy modding!

That looks great! And simple too. I think I'll get that done this week. Thanks for sharing!
