Well I got bored with the bike and decided to try to clean up the look of the tail for next to nothing. (assuming you have access to the tools)





I got a little carried away and didn't take many pictures. I had to hold it back up after cutting it off to show what I removed. I removed everything off the tail to access it and cut it on the bike for the most part. I used a dremel tool to cut if off. I just did a rough cut way below where I wanted to end up and got the feel for the tool.. Then after it was close I used an air sanding wheel to clean it up.



I ended up bending a couple of pieces of aluminum sheet chunks and using them to mount the license plate. I just riveted the brackets to the inner fender plastic. Then I used a wire loom ziptie to remount the light for the plate. I will get a picture of the finished product soon. It will not last long though as I am moving the seat lock and tucking an exhaust up there.

Here is a close up, If this was going to be permanent I would have been more thorough.


It would be better to get some leds and run along the top or something but this worked for the couple weeks I had it like this.



I really need a new camera and/or phone. Can you tell the difference between the first pic and all these? Same phone a year ago...



As far as the roughness on the finish around the cut you couldn't even tell unless you got up underneath and looked up.

Now I have to figure out a mount off the muffler I have to make yet.
