So I'm trying to slim my '05 750 down as much as possible and I bought a license plate cover with blinkers built in on the sides without thinking about it too much.After reading about the turn signals, they have 3 wires per signal. From the pictures it looks like this license plate has only 1 wire running from each signal. Do I have any options now? Thanks

3 wires is for the following.

Ground, running light, blinker.

The new blinkers should have at least 2 wires, ground and blinker.

Factory rear signals are turn signal only, so no running lights.

The single wire lights most likely just ground through the mounting. So they either need metal contact to the bike, or a jumper wire to ground.

The license plate itself is metal, which will ground with the bikes license plate holder I suppose? Then from there I suppose I just connect the single wire to the blinker wire and running&ground are left alone?

If it's all metal, it should ground at the mount. Then you just need the right/left signal wires extended down to the plate.

My signals are mounted on the plate, three wire lights. Just extended the wires down through the fender.
