Ok Kiwi,

I wasn't gonna bin them anyway, I was hoping someone could use them. I can ship them for you if you want?

All the best Paul.

Ive lost a few number plates and light units when the tire rips them off, may need to angle it out a bit.

.....and why a number plate lamp ?....tail lamp lens already has a clear cut out, or if not, you can either create one or fit an M2 lens which has a clear section.

form over function :roll:
if you take a close look at picture , it has a clear section on bottom of tail lamp .
Suppose in hindsight at least the tail lamp will illuminate the number plate lamp whilst you’re changing the bulb lOl

I’m afraid it doesn’t have the clear element in the rear lamp hence the number plate lamp for mot etc .
Maybe being an American personal import is the cause ?

Number plate lights are now part of the MOT, I've just had mine done with two of these on it.

this is a nice & cheap solution
IF you want one with the clear section underneath
certainly cheaper than buying a Ducati lens :yup:
