Side mounted plate

Hi,
Just received a side mounted plate from js-parts in Germany but it has no fitting and wiring instructions.
Has anyone fitted one? If so how difficult is it?
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
Chris

Easy to fit and bolt on, wiring can be a PITA though. You'll need to isolate auxiliary power wires from your harness that runs under the rear fender and run them to the new plate.

Current Inventory: 2018 Triumph Bobber Black, 2017 Honda Grom, 2002 GSXR-750 Track Bike (not street legal).

Past Inventory:
2013 Triumph Speed Triple R, farkled out.
2017 Ducati 1299 Panigale S, farkled out (RIP...lady pulled out in front of me, totaled).
2014 BMW F800 ST, of course farkled out.
2004 Honda R6, stock!.
2016 Honda Grom, bar end mirrors, handle bars, flush mounted signals.
2017 BMW R-nine T, stock!

I took the easy route today, and isolated a wire from the fuse box as it was far more accessible. The PITA was routing the wires along the frame, behind the fender, and inside the cover. Took longer to think it out than to do it. I used a bead of clear silicone to glue the wire flat along the frame (just under the chain).


Overall, it came out professional and solid for my aftermarket plate light.
