Alright, here's what the DR650 license plate relocation kit will look like!!! I got the first wiring harness today, I still need to find out what they are going to charge me to make it... so, I don't know what I have to charge for the kit yet...





As you can see in the picture, it has a 3 prong plug built in, to plug into a trailer lighting harness. The harness can be run under the fender to the stock tail light plug in point or run through the pictured cap off plate where the stock tail light would go. You'll see at the end of the harness, there are extra bullet connectors. These are in case you want to keep your "stock" tail light (DR 250 mostly) in place and operational as well as the new LED tail light, BOTH can be plugged in at the same time.

I need more pics and dimensions.Pics of the back would be fine and from the top.I can show you the dimensions I need on those pics.I think I can use that light on one of my bikes.PM me a price if you don't wanna post it on the forum.If it will work,I will be interested in one.

We test fit the license plate relocation bracket on another DR yesterday, all looks good! I just need to get pricing on the wiring harness, then I can offer the kit for sale.



As you can see, you can run both the DR250 light and the new LED if you want. It gives you a little more visibility.

We also made good progress on the trailer wiring harness! Things are progressing quite well

ben2go, what dimensions do you need? Send me a PM and we'll see if it will work for you.

You're VERY near the top NOW, Mr. Bracket.
But, the Rekluse is still beating you out, for now, anyway

So do I just replace my Axle Nut with one you can provide? And I'm good to go?
OK.
You win.

The new Rekluse EXP is not ready to ship yet for my 990,
........so this trailer is.....IN !!!

I get them at my local Lowes Hardware store for about $30 new.

Other containers may work too, that is just the one I recommend.

I am excited to see what others come up with for tubs or flat decks.
Now that I bought the trailer, I had to go back into this thread to see which size Action Packer to buy.
Maybeyaoughtta put that on your website.
Well,....... as soon as you get done shipping MY trailer....


24 gallon Action Packer - $38.99 at www.doitbest.com , shipped to my local "Do It Best" hardware store affiliate for no extra charge !!

Finally got the cost worked out!!! $99 for the complete kit. Includes bracket, light, wiring harness with trailer connection, and block off plate for removing old tail light.

I don't have it on the website yet, just PM me and we'll get the details worked out. John, if you have any time to come down in the near future, I'll install it for you just to get some pictures and such!!

Is this something everyone (Mr Bracket) would consider using for long distance dual sport rides? Like form Ca. to Alaska? I would much rather use one of these than big bulky racks and panniers.

I would. If I ever ending up riding from NC to Nicaragua it's what i'd take, no doubt.
