Hey

I'm removing the rear fender for a cleaner tail look (the ergo plate will be lower on a mono bracket off the CARC)

What do you use to mount the blinkers...a bracket from local hardware store or is there a purpose made bracket?

Cheers

Some of the tail tidy kits come with integrated and some with (purpose made) separate blinker brackets....obviously you are dropping licence plate down to CARC so you'll either need to source some spare brackets or just need to knock them up using Steel/Al sheet or hardware shop stuff. I fitted GT one so used the brackets they supplied

I saw this today and thought if I flip it and make a caliper mount it might just work .........
except .................. what you see here .......................... costs US$680-

Why would you want to add more weight to the already bulky bevelbox assembly? Mad!

So why sacrifice some of that for something that performs no real function?

Look, I agree, do anything that floats yer boat. I was just saying I think it’s bonkers! Very Happy

Current lightweight alloy guard has developed stress cracks, better fix it before I loose another number plate and tail light.

Gen 4 ????????????????????????

Maybe I should get the new BUNKERS.

So, much as Pete hates the CARC mounted plate holder, I fitted one - love that massive gap between the tyre & body.   Extremely well made, even came with a couple of brackets to refit the indicators, reflector & LED number plate light.  Not bothered about a bit of extra weight - after my last bike, anything that can crack a ton is fast

I guess you either love em or hate em.

But I reckon they add something to the lock of the bike and as I don't plan racing the GRiSO any time soon, I've also gone for one.Looks great!
