Well after having my 919 for a week and a half i stopped riding it to do my first mod.... get rid of that thing
that hanged down called a fender... what a joke and to get rid of the huge blinkers.
So the other night i took the whole back apart and started planing and came up with something quite elegant and simple i kinda blew myself away. I used nothing but parts that were originally on the bike.
I first taped off n got to choppin the rear fender, relocated the license plate rubber bumper thing as well as the license plate holes up about 1.5-2inches.
Already cut with pieces lying next to it.
Finished cut piece
Now where to mount the blinkers and how? I didnt want a buncha crap hanging around and i wanted the blinkers tucked away but still highly visible.... hmmm then it hit me!
I took the stock licence plate holder and bent the ends that overhung the plate anyways to create tabs on which my led blinkers would go. n put a coat of flat black spray paint on it.
I was even able to use the stock holes on the license plate!
I used the stock licence plate bracket mounting holes to route the wires through and drilled two more up through the flanges to route the wires. Reason i kept the plastic down to just above the bottom edge of the plate was to protect the plate from road grime, n rocks.
N there she is how it shoulda looked from the factory, clean sanitary, yet still visible. N yes this is a honda family... Dads VTX1800R (talk about stupid raw power) a Chinese remake of the honda z50 with a 110cc 4spd (has 7k miles on it!), and my CRF250X dirbike thats pumpin out probably close to 37hp!
BTW i must say i hate you guys for getting me addicted to the drug called the 919.... i love it!
