Sub-Fender Removal License Plate Light Wires
So, after perusing the Missouri Motorcycle Safety Inspection requirements again and finding no mention whatsoever of a requirement for a license plate light, I've decided to remove my '09's rear sub-fender and just mount my plate on the fender without a light.
The wires going to the plate light seem to be permanently attached to the metal bulb fixture or whatever it is. I was hoping to find some kind of plug or disconnect. Is it okay to just cut them and then cap/tape them off? In the unlikely event I would have to reinstall and reconnect, seems like there would be plenty of loose wire to work with to splice them back together.
Also, my knowledge of electricity and wiring is very rudimentary. Feel free to laugh. If I cut the wires, do I cap them separately or do I need to connect them together? Does it matter?
