Question question about plate light

REGISTRATION PLATE LIGHT

can someone tell me if there's a piece that covers up the guts for the reg/plate light? i found the light hanging down, popped it back in but am now wondering if there was a piece that covers up the guts from underneath that fell off, or if it was even there in the first place.

thanks ahead of time.

oh, it's a 15 f700gs but i think same for 650 and 800...not sure

the piece i'm looking for would be underneath #2 where the wires come through connecting to bulb. but if the piece exists it would be listed here, eh?

it seems the 700 '15s have that extra extension piece, #2, to extend the light cover over the plate, looking at different bike pics on net some bikes don't have #2 piece just the #1. still not sure if there's a gut piece cover for underneath #2 or if it just fell off. seems there is not. weird design if so to leave open for road crud to enter. does your 800, reaver, have a piece there? as well as that extension #2 part?

thanks for help.

#2 comes on all the F GS's both EU ans NA spec. Quite a few guys remove them. It's just an extension and it doesn't matter if the wires get muddy. No need to cover it. If you're looking at it, turn the bike back over.

There is no "under cover" on that #2 part of my '12 or '14.
