Hey Fellow Beasties...

I am upgrading this week to a flashing brake light and a license plate frame with brake light and turn signals. Problem....!

I was looking att the brake light and I didn't see any screws holding the brake light cover on. How does that cover come off? I am looking around and haven't found and answer yet.

Have you stuck your hand behind the fender?

Jus did mine ..
Yes you can do it without removing the tire !

You can also "jack" the bike up a little this may give you more room.
But its NOT necessary to do this !
Have to admit that I only had the opportunity to peek under the cover. I have a Vulcan nomad,,,there is no way under that fender. I hope it looks easier with cover off in a few weeks.

I will take a look at it when I get home today...there isn't a lot of room between the tire and fender. I will see about putting the frame on blocks to see if that helps.

Thanks

Once you do it a few times (and know what your doing..) it takes all of five minutes to remove the rear fender.

It's simply bolted on.. not welded. I remove mine all the time for various things.

Stupidest thing I ever heard of,,well, almost
It isn't. There is a ton of room to stick your arm and a socket wrench in there. I changed my license plate bracket and it sits on top of the light. It took me 100 seconds to remove it and the same to install the new one. No reaching or contorting required. You do not have to remove the fender.
