Side-Mount License Plate Kit

Part Number 60972-10A


Finish / Color: Gloss Black



Add a clean, custom look to the rear fender. This stylish kit moves the license plate from the fender to a side-mount location, visually lowering the bikes profile and opening up the view of the rear end.

  • Strut-mounted hinged frame conceals the license mounting hardware
  • Features a smooth back that hides the unfinished side of the plate
  • Kit includes LED license plate illumination and a curved Bar & Shield medallion
  • NOTE: license plate location and fold-away feature is regulated in many states

Fits '04-later XL models (except XL1200T). Will not fit some International Specification '14-later XL883N (Iron 883™) models with Original Equipment LED Turn Signals. See your dealer for details. Will not fit models equipped with rigid mount saddlebags, rigid mount sissy bars, and Turn Signal Relocation Kit P/N 68732-02A and 68733-02A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Custom bike in one bolt-on part. Nothing made a noticeable difference to the look of my bike than moving the license plate from the top of the fender to the side of the bike. Immediately, men showed more respect and women discovered a whole new level of attraction. Not to me but to my bike, of course. The most difficult part of the installation was fitting the long flange of the mount between the rail and the fender. Take care not to scratch the paint. You should also slow down when connecting the wiring. It's possible to leave connectors loose or damage the taillight connection. Although cops never pulled me over for it (luck?) be sure to deploy the plate before you set off on a ride.

WInd resistance turns plate

Hi, is there any way to tighten up the pivot / swivel? When I accelerate (moderately) the wind pressure folds the plate so it is facing sideways. Best regards Bo
Asked by: LonerDK

Is there a harness adaptor? The included wiring harness does not fit.

Everything installed properly and looks great except the included wiring harness is for a 6 pin plug that has the left, right and break light all in one. I have a 2014 SuperLow 883 and the wiring under the seat (fender connectors 7 & 8 shown in figure 1 of the instructions) are actually split into 3 individual plugs (2 pin each) for the right, left blinkers and break light. This is not compatible with the included harness.

Problems with side mount lic. kit

When I fitted the new turn signal bolt its not long enough to pass through the fender the new bolt is the same size as the turn signal bolt already fitted to the IRON but now there is also the side mount bracket plate thickness to pass through? aslo the rear most frame mounts thread into inserts that are mounted in the plastic rear lic. holder, so if it is not used there is nothing to nut up the rear bolt? this is for a 2011 883 iron???
