hmm, so my blinkers quitting on my otherwise new kit is not unusual... My batt appears to be toast as well. i was going to shove a 5ah UPS batteryunder the seat and dispense with their silly thing. My license bracket was $1 at home depot. Get one of those 'Z' (90deg corners actually) brackets they use for holding 2x6 timber. it's in the section with all the other wierd looking straps and brackets for house construction. And drill one of the holes bigger so you can mount it to the little bolt under the tail light. save the nut backing off, mine ain't going anywhere!
