    Gents,

    Just looking for some advice, does anyone know the best place to wire in the number plate light from my Chopz Tail Tidy.

    Not exactly sure what you mean here - the original number plate should have a supply for lighting?

    The wiring harness has 4 bullet connectors for the tail tidy which is fine & easy. However the number plate surround has a 1x blackbwire & 1x white wire. Just want to know where people splice theese into. Typical that you spend all that money to buy a plug & play system that’s not actually plug & play.

    I got the Bikecraft one and had the same.  Tail lights and indicators are plug & play but the number plate light you have to cut the existing one and join it.  So you should find 3 sets of wires left and right indicators and brake light and one for the number plate light.

    HAHAHA cheers Adrian, I should of looked properly.

    I had a look today & there is clearly a tail light wiring harness, all I have to do is splice into that, then its plug & play too. 


    Cheers

    Yep thats it.  I cut mine close to the back of the bike so that if I need to I can put the old setup back and make it look like it never left, plus the wires on the new on were a lighter gauge wire (yours may be different).  You may also find that the dash light flash fast once you have put the new one on but the lights themselves flash correctly.  It will throw codes under BCM but it doesn't make the engine light come on.  I put the resistor in they gave me on the left side which made the right side flash right on the dash.  Then I put LEDs on the front and they flashed fast again.  Everything else works fine so I gave up at that point and just left it the way it is.  You can also undo the original clips that hold the wires onto the guard with a small blade screw driver allowing you to reuse them.

    Post a pic when your done!
