I'm new and have a few questions for the 950 v star. I was looking at coil cover ideas. Who has the best? I'm also looking for a way to mount my license plate to the swing arm. I know bevo1981 has done it. How did you mount it

Really like that coil cover. Are there instructions somewhere? Degree of difficulty? If I get the horn cover, is the rest fairly obvious?

Thanks in advance!

Probably not obvious because you have to do some imagineering to use just the stock parts. It was the kind of mod where you have to be 3 steps ahead of this thing in your brain...... But the proof is in the pictures.
I did this in 2016 or 17 ........(some details are fuzzy) The horn cover I got had a factory hole on the left upper side, some covers do some don't depending on the year.
This took a lot of forethought because I did remount the coils within the stock bracket cutting away what was not needed and other parts re-bent.
One re-bent part is the screw mount on the bottom of the stock cover became the mount on the new cover. If you remind me so I don't forget I'll take the cover off for some pics.
All of it was done on the bike with minimal removal of parts, it was just a matter of making the whole assembly more compact.
IIRC part of it was remounting the coils behind/reversing the stock location, this moved everything closer to the motor which makes it easier to cover.
And it is all still on the factory mounting bracket mounted as good as stock. Some pics will refresh my memory......later
