    Fender reflector holes

    "14 RT. I didn't get a reflector. And these rear fender holes are begging for one. Or a decorative farkle, e.g. logo/s
    Any ideas?

    I found this solution for my bike. I ordered the bracket from the gentleman in the link and the roundel from eBay. After a little futzing pulling these parts together it turned out to be a great solution for filling holes!

    How is the roundel fastened to the bracket?

    The roundel (standard BMW part 51-14-8164-924) is adhesive backed and has two pins that are used for alignment. The bracket has the pin holes that not only allow for perfect alignment but also it is a snug fit which aids in keeping it in place.

    I bet those are rear fog light mount holes.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm leaning toward auxiliary brake lighting. Something like what Lee suggested. Or perhaps Hyper lights, if they'll go in that place. Any Hyperlite insight/pics would be appreciated.

    My hyper lights went on either side of the license plate frame.

    The BMW CANBUS supplemental LED brake light is NOT compatible with the WC GS and RT per Max BMW website.

    Installation requires separate purchase of adapter harness for specific year and model BMW. Not all models are supported. Note: this light is not compatible with K5X new boxer models: R1200GS/GSA W, R1200RT.

    Regarding the roundel/bracket, is drilling required to mount that bracket to the fender? I bought one and don't see how to get the nuts provided with the bracket behind the screw holes molded in the fender.

    The fender is adjustable. Looking at the fender from the inside there is one nut to remove and the entire adjustable portion of the fender can be removed. That will allow you to mount the bracket without drilling. Once complete, reinstall the adjustable fender part which will slide right back on.

    Does it help to slide the fender extension down when mounting the bracket?
