    I'll be trying out two lights.

    First is this from eBay - similar to your suggestion:

    Second is this from Amazon for an '03 cbr600:

    This is the light from a different company for that bike:

    Both are under $15 delivered. I'm fairly confident I can make #1 work, but #2 gets good reviews on Amazon and has turn signals integrated too. I think #2 will be too large for the opening. Neither will be ideal, but one will get stuck in there :thumbsup:

    As ridiculous as it seems, a standard Lucas style light turned upside down doesn't fit half bad. This particular one has a clear section of plastic for the plate light that you would probably want to paint, and you would need some other plate light solution.

    I'm mainly showing this because that is a pretty damn big light, and it looks fine at 5 feet. Anyway, I had it sitting on the shelf:

    How well does that light up the plate? Looks like it is a solid red housing from the eBay pic

    It is a solid red lens. I originally had one with a clear plastic lens, and the LEDs were red across the top rows, and the bottom row was clear LEDs, but after it got broken and I saw how much Baja Designs wanted for a new one (about 30 bucks), I opted for the 9 dollar one on E-bay.

    Still working on things. I removed the old radiator mounts last night and was able to mock-up the radiators. I ended up trimming the lower shrouds where they hit the bottom of the tank. I'm thinking I'll try earlier TC shrouds next time. They are shaped much like my trimmed versions. Anyone know for sure if their tabs fit with the later WR upper shrouds?

    Things get a bit cozy with the rads in place. It doesn't help that I'm running Chinese rads, aftermarket tank, and flatland rad guards, but in general everything seems to fit okay. Probably as well as this grouping of parts can be expected to fit together.

    I ordered that fender from my local dealer, today. We shall see what configuration actually arrives in a few days! The parts guy says it will look just like the stock one that's on my bike now, but I'm hoping it will look like the one that the tail light fits into! If not, well...at least I'll have a good spare!:excuseme:

    Cheapo taillight fits. I made a ridiculously involved bracket for it. Thinking back, I really should have used a piece of angle instead of a 3/4" piece of aluminum.

    Forgot to include a side shot when I first posted.

    I painted it black.

    I have not done too much since the last post while I wait on the final parts to show up. I made a spacer for the clutch cable to eliminate the ghetto spacer I have been using for years. I'm using a terminator cable, and it has always been longer than the factory piece. Anyway, after a little cajiggering, it came out nice.

    I can confirm the CBR light is too wide. It might work well for someone building a bracket and attaching it to the underside of some fender without the extra plate/light bracket. That person isn't me.

    Also picked up a 2017 OHV sticker so I can do a shakedown run in the local national forest before the trip out west. The trails have been closed since Memorial Day due to flood damage and only just recently reopened.

    Still waiting on the mystical tank shrouds to show up, but the crap seat is here. I went ahead and ordered a new one since the foam in this has some issues. It won't be here before my trip, but it feels better knowing it is coming. I'm surprised the shroud attaching hardware is so visible under the sides of the seat. I'm guessing some of this might be a combo of the IMS tank and the really crappy cover job that squished the foam strangely. But hey, it is a place to put my butt.

    I made a new bracket for the voltage reg in front of the head tube above the steering stop block.

    Also installed a rivet master link, mounted my license plate, wired the taillight, and added connectors/loom/routed the wires for the taillight, ktm style control switch, and volt reg. No pics of any of that.

    The ims tank I had on 360 was a monster and showed the bolts up far worse than that.
    Looking good tho.

    Pics make the seat look much better than real life. I think something originally ripped through the cover and into the foam in one section. Very usable, but sort of lumpy. The front section also has the foam collapsed on one side where the cover was pulled too much when it was replaced. I did what I could to fix the cover job for now.

    There is an idea! I rather like the look of the tank/shrouds on the 92-94. I think this swap only makes sense if you are attached to your frame for whatever reason. Much easier and not much more expensive to simply buy a later frame if you don't have to deal with titles/registration/inspection.

    i agree, i think the 92-94 are one of the sharpest huskies ever made....swedish, italian, or austrian.
    i have my chassis set up and everything..kind of invested into the machine, and i have several sets of the 95 plastic to sell.
