Thank you! It looks mint! I've ordered one and it just landed. Did you stick your number plate with double sided tape???  :084:

Its the first thing anyone should buy for these bikes in my opinion.

It should look a lot nicer once I get my seat hump on as well.

Yeah numberplate was attached using 3M double sided tape.

By the way that isnt a standard sized plate on there, it's a 7" x 5" if I remember correctly?

I've got a smaller 7x6 5-letter/digit number plate as well. I'll try to stick it with tape as well... Hopefully it's not gonna fall @ 150+ (on the track of course)...

As a direct consequence of your post I ordered the same unit and it arrived today!  I was surprised to find that it comes with it's own licence plate LED but it looks like I can still re-use the OEM unit like you say.  Will get that fitted today and the sun is shining too... being on lockdown does have its advantages!

Sorry for doing two posts in a row but it's too late to modify the previous one.

I fitted the tail tidy but I hit a problem; the OEM number plate light would not fit flush with the tidy until I enlarged a central hole in it to about 20mm (from about 7mm) and also had to enlarge the two bolt holes from about 5mm to 7mm.  Sadly not plug and play for me but now all the standard lights are on and no cables needed to be cut.
