102dals is an unknown quantity at this point
Anybody mounted Protons? I read somewhere the RC51 versions fit? Do you have to take off the fairing for mounting?

protons

What he said.
I want integrated turnsignal mirrors.
Then I want to put something like the protons in the oval holes in the bodywork where the stockers stuck through, wired to be running lights only or alternatively use the strobe setting on them if I continue to wire them as flashers.

I put a pair (for an RC) on a few weeks ago. They fit perfectly, are very bright and no removal of the fairings is required. A small (don't remember the size) ratcheting wrench made tightening the nut that holds the light in place a lot easier.

Ariola I really like that fairing and light setup. Is it a superhawk race fairing modded?

Can you show pics of the whole bike? How is the light output.?

I believe it's a Buell Firebolt fairing set up. Gives the bike really clean lines...

That looks really nice, can't help but notice the original CCTs and how far the front forks have been dropped though!

Have you addressed those items yet?

Did the VTR came with license plate lights? Because mine doesn't have them (and neither is there any plug for them) , and I need to know this as I'm due for the road inspection and they pick on this as a reason for failure.

Yes it did, was part of the fender/ mud flap.

LED license plate light bolts are a super clean way to meet the inspection needs.

Thanks! I was hoping that up to some point bikes weren't build with plate lights and I'd get away with it, but if that's the case I'll splice one of the brake light wires and fit something, I might already have one of those "LED in a bolt" lights hidden somewhere...

Your location says "EU" if accurate, I have no idea what EU regulations say about license plate lights.
In the US, all vehicles on the road with a plate must have lights that make the plate visible from the rear. State law dictates how far (how bright the lights have to be) but generally, you only get hassled on it if they wanted a reason to stop you anyway.

Theoretically, they're mandatory, and also any modifications of external lighting (such as LED tail lights) are forbidden, being caught with such should get you a fine + registration suspension- which you'll get back after paying the fine and a passing (and paying) an inspection at an office of the motor vehicle agency. Same for modified exhausts, frames, etc. Practically, unless you come by a "thematic inspections road block" (eg all bikes passing) which is rather rare for passenger vehicles, in 99,99% of cases you could get away with anything, especially if it's within reason.
For the usual inspection, which can be also done at private centers, small things such as LED plate lights are tolerated, but you do need to have all lights that came from the factory.

I'm thinking that you didn't have a light for the license plate because it never had one.The fender is shorter as a result of not needing a separate light. The bikes for the UK market did not have the light shown in E.Marquez's photo. Maybe the rest of the EU did not get them also.
Light is provided by a clear panel on the bottom of the tail light. US market bikes have an opaque panel.

Great info, thanks!

I'll check for the clear panel in the tail light later.
This is the rear of my bike:

Maybe cause it was covered in mud from the, apparent, off-roading you've been doing.

So, this is the first I've heard that any model of VTR had transparent panels on the bottom of the taillights rather than opaque or translucent as mine has. I've thought about cutting out the opaque plastic and replacing with clear to act as plate illumination. Is it just the tail/brake light that shines through there on UK bikes or do they have an additional bulb to illuminate the plate?

Same as US bikes but with the clear panel. I purchased a tail light from eBay in the UK. I cut my fender back and wanted a way to illuminate the plate without using tag bolts.
