A relector

Recommended Posts

Guys, please be patient with my simple questions. It may not seem like it I do catch on quick. Absolutely loving this bike. What is this space for just below the plate. I'm assuming for some kind of reflector. Any suggestions as to what I should use. Thanks.

Paging RTinNC for your tutorial on the rear BMW badging.

Aren't the European license plates much larger and that is the reason for the bump out and extra holes?

Jay, your post is about bike stuff.  This kind of post belongs in either the forum for your specific bike's model group (Oilheads, Wetheads, etc.) or in Bike-Related Things.  Riders Discuss Other Topics is meant for non-motorcycle content.

@PastorJay, FYI - the nut that is centered below the letter B, holds the screw that allows the fender extension to slide down.   Look on the inside of the fender and you will see the torx head (I believe)  part of the screw.    You will notice in RTinNC's photo (above) that his fender extension is further down that what is shown in your picture.   It is also just as new looking!  :whistle:

 

Cheers,

It can be used to mount an auxilary brake light, like an LED to get their attention.

I see that. I was considering it, but I also like the idea of the added brake light. Thanks.

Why not both?     You can mount the lights on either side of the plate.  HERE

PastorJay,

 

This site ( https://www.superbrightleds.com/ ) has a huge assortment of LED lights and bulbs, plus a very good "bulb finder" for vehicles including motorcycles that will show you what type buld for most every replaceable bulb on a vehicle.  LED life expectancy is so long now that the "bulb" is built-in as part of the "fixture" or lamp and is not replaceable itself. 

 

The LED fixture I have (2) are similar to these at $24 ea, 18w, with built-in programmable flasher:  https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/grille-and-surface-mount-strobe-lights/low-profile-grille-and-surface-mount-led-light-head-18w/3458/7452/

 

If you can operate a pair of pliars and a can opener you can do this.

 

According to the Vehicle "bulb finder your 2015 RT only has three replaceable bulbs, headlight hi beam, lo-beam, and parking light:  https://www.superbrightleds.com/vehicle/2015-bmw-r1200rt?make=11&model=3121&year=2015   All the other lights, instruments, turn signals, brake/tail are "built in" LED's.

Thank you for the info and the pics. I will definitely look into purchasing one. I am at best a weekend mechanic but I am definitely able to operate  the tools you mentioned. :18:
