Best Way To Mount A Number Board?

Recommended Posts

I collect my 2017 Combat Camo this weekend and wondered what owners think is the best way to mount a number board? Or is it better to just tape the number over the light?

I purchased a black number board from my local dealer and cable tied it on over the original plastic 3 pointed LED holder. It has a slight curve but it looks and works ok.

Given that a light serves no useful purpose on a pure trials bike (in the UK), I would remove it.

One would like to think that on a sophisticated machine like the Vertigo this could be done simply by unplugging a connector rather than having to cut wires.

I'm building a C/F one. Clip on with a lip on top to mount the lights and button on.

Search on ebay motors, trials number plate. A guy in Oklahoma sales some plastic ones.

The map button and two LEDs are just held in place with silicone, they just pop out of the original mount.

 

I made a bracket out of an right angled piece of plastic (made from the edge of an old plastic box), drilled out holes along the top for the button and LEDs.

I think the button is around 11 or 12mm and the LED's 4mm.

 

I hot glued them in to the new bracket from underneath and used a couple of small, counter sunk bolts and nuts to bolt it to the back of a normal number board, close to the top edge.

Used a black number board, black plastic and black counter sunk bolts, so it all looks rather neat. (well it would have if I managed to get the bolt head level!)

 

The map button's body isn't totally round, there are a couple of lugs either side to stop it rotating in the hole, just needed to carefully file out two slots in the hole to make it fit flush.
