NineT Tail Tidy TRON LED BAR with detailed pics

Here is what I did to my bike so far...
1. Fabricated a side mount license bracket
2. Removed the reflectors from the fork
3. Shaved down the 2 strap hangers under the passenger seat
4. Fabricated an exhaust bracket
5. IMOLA bar end mirrors

and today I spent a few hours in the garage and installed a LED bar.
This LED bar is awesome... It is bright even in daylight. the entire bar is a running light and a brake light. The LED bar also has amber lights and is used for blinkers. This one tiny unit does it all!!!

So here is what I did... (See pics for reference)

A: I removed the factory light assembly and snipped the wires. There are 5 wires Brake/running lights, Left turn, Right turn, Ground, License plate light.

B: I snipped the wires under driver seat

C: I installed a female 6 pin connector to the wires under driver seat

D: Mounted the CHROME GLOW LED bar (part# 4801-172S) to the Seat Cowl using a heat gun to help mold the contour of the cowl and then drilled a small hole to feed the wires through.

E: Installed the Male 6 pin connector to the Seat cowl wiring

F: Installed the seat cowl and plugged in the 6 pin connector

And that's about it...

Next I will build a setup for the passenger seat and install another male 6 pin connector so I can take a rider with no hassles.

And lastly I will fabricate a lighting setup for the BOBBER style with only a SOLO Seat.

This is the BEST solution for a tail tidy/ light clean-up.

I'm doing this to my bike...

Nice job, Jason! Can't get much tidier than that. I moved my plate to the same spot and later found and added a curved and lit bracket for it. Check it out:

Wow, this is by far the best solution for removing that tail! Nice and clean, well done! Now you need to find a solution for the front indicators...

Manly, hectic, ample and stylish, the warbling R nineT is total harmony with its plumage.
The dual exhaust creaks every blip ... hearing delight.
