Update on 12/05/2010:

These parts arrived... and here is the unboxing:

(please excuse my poor out of focus picture taking)







Everything was packaged very well.... and I was happy with the quality of the parts prior to the install.
Still waiting on my flush mounts and fender eliminator to arrive....

oh it hurts that you spent 20 bucks on that flasher when an 9 buck part from from autozone does the same thing...

But you will love the taillights.

Update 12/08/2010:

Got my Ebay plate bracket in the mail today. Not too sure I like the angle on it, but if need be I put it in the vice and adjust that....





Now all I'm waiting on is my Flush mounts so I can get to work on the bike!
(I'm too lazy to work on it in stages rather do everything I got at the same time)

Alright prepare youself people... this thread is about to get 56K unfriendly....

SPOILER ALERT: There will be a unexpected surprise at the end of this post!

So today is my first day off of work so I decided to get to work on the bike.....

My flushies are still not here but I figured I could get the taillight and fender eliminator going.


So here she is.... prior to tearing her apart.... Notice the disgusting turns, and rear fender garbage.








This is the garage, I keep her in along side one of my other rides (VWVortex member if anybody was wondering)



This is what I'm going to be doing today: New Motodynamics Integrated Tail along with a ebay plate bracket and CustomLed Relay







Here is the FUEL i'm going to use to make all this happen:

WILD CHERRY NUKKAS!

Well I started by removing the front seat: Just gotta remove the two allen bolts by peeling back the seat a bit





Make sure not to do what I did and have one of these washer things from the seat fall into the bike:



This is what she will look like with the hood up:



This is the stock relay we will be removing by just pulling back the clip and pulling it out:




Comparison between stock and the customled relay:



Next I used a mini screwdriver to remove the little rivets along the rear taillight.... there are six of them three on each side





Next remove the allen bolt underneath the passenger seat:



Then remove the two screw type plastic rivets underneath the main seat.

Just holdon to the edges while you unscrew them so they don't spin:





Now you can take the tail off! Just be gentle you don't want ot break the tabs on the tail. Just fiddle with it until you can get it off



Here she is naked! I considered this my halfway point and went and got another capri sun:



Notice the little rivet in the middle: That is what you need to push down to get the rivet out.... There is three of them







Next unplug the brake light, the plug is near the passenger peg



Now if you still have your stock fender, you need to go underneath the passenger seat and unbolt these 4 bolts:

That releases the rear fender, and now all you have to do is UNPLUG all the wires.

NOTHING needs to be cut just pull on the connectors and they will unplug


Next put the new taillamp in and run the wires along the side... plug the brake light in, and the blue wire to the black and the yellow to the gray.

Now make sure EVERYTHING Works properly... make sure the brake works and try both directionals to make sure left is left and right is right



HOORAY! It Works!!!

Now you want to neatly organize all your wires so they sit nice in the tail.

You want them to tuck, so the tail sits flush when you put it back on. No worries there is plenty of room, just use some zip ties like this:



Now what I did was take the stock bolt bracket, and placed it underneath my ebay plate holder like so



Placed it underneath and tightened everything up lightly! You don't want to crack the plastic!



Then I put back the tail, in the reverse order!

And presto!!!

Thanks! Yes I am. The bike honestly looks fantastic! BUT.... my picture taking skills are GARBARGE!!! Every pic I take is grainy. The Fitment on the Motodynamics was just like stock and the smoke looks great with the black bike.

judging by the plates, I'm going to say Florida. Nice bike. I've got the same bike, same tail light and similar sliders. Love the blacked out look.

Not sure what you paid for the ebay plate bracket, but you can actually take that stock bolt bracket, bend the 2 free ends to a 90* and bend them outward til they match the plate and you have a free license plate bracket that works perfectly.

20 bucks and didn't have to bend anything looks legit!
