What Brick?

After about a year, I have finally decided to change my brick.
Without splicing the harness. All new wires, and connectors.
Unfortunately, California's License Plate is either too big, or Japan's Plate is too small. Currently my plate is zip-tied onto the mount.

Parts List:
Taillight https://japan.webike.net/products/23619207.html

Turn Signals https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...-signal-type-6

22awg wire 20ft https://www.amazon.com/Electrical-Ga...V38ZWW6K6BSZP7

CustomLED 2pin Turn Signal Connector https://www.customled.com/products/h...nectors-2-wire

CustomLED Honda LED Flasher Relay https://www.customled.com/products/e...ay-4-pin-honda

Lots of heat shrink (I had bulk from work that I was able to use)

I have a backer plate made out of 14 gauge steel that my license plate is fastened to and then the backer plate is fastened to the motorcycle.

I just drilled holes in the license plate and put "screw-in" round reflectors in the standard top plate holes.

Hey @RussianBear365 , I was about to give up after 3 days of internet searching for a new tail light and finally did one more search on here and found your post...! My problem is most of the tail lights replacements are too small and this one fits the bill so well. Think I'll order it.

How did you end up attaching it to the fender? I can't tell if the bolt holes match the pre-existing ones.

The Daytona light from Webike Japan is a plug and play replacement for the original tail light. Uses the same 2 holes as the original bracket.

Thanks for that, I actually just ordered it about 5 minutes ago and was checking back on the thread here, so great timing. Can't wait to put it together with the rear signals I got to.

I would have posted a closeup pic of mine but did not want to hijack the OP's thread.
Just a heads-up, the instructions are in Japanese.

Ha, can't wait. Guess I can put google translate to work and see how it goes.... (and what's the OP thread, is this tail light somewhere else on here?)
