License Plate Relocation step by step w/pics>>

I relocated my license plate after removing the mud flap/fender. I re-used the plate bracket off of the stock assembly and relocated it under the tail.

(1) Remove the passenger seat/cowl, plastic separator, and driver's seat from the bike.

(2) From under the driver's seat, lift up on the little doo-hickey mounted on the tab outlined in blue. Just lift straight up.

(3) From under the driver's seat, lift up the big honking box right behind the battery (don't know what it's called) Lift straight up to remove it from the 2 tabs outlined in red. This will expose the under tray.

(4) Mark and drill holes for the plate bracket. The bolts are shown mounted outlined in Green. These are the same bolts that held the plate bracket to the mud flap. A 3/8 inch bit should work fine.

*You'll need the change the orientation of the bracket 180 degrees when you attach to the bottom of the bike. Play with the orientation of the plate and bracket before you attach. It will make sense once you do this.

(5) Attach the plate and put the bike back together. You're done.

thats basically the same setup I have on my bike.

The cleanest and easiest by far.

I have just one more feature that I like.

I have a 4" white neon bulb mounted directly over the plate.

It gives the white light the Law needs to see but the light compleatly WASHES out the plate.

You cannot read it for shit under the white neon.

I love it and recommend it highly to everyone, unless you dont care about that stuff.

Personally I rarely stop when I am on the bike, if you know what I mean.

ya ya ya...

Thanks for the info Crispin. I'm still toying with the light ideas. I saw different neon bulbs at Pep Boys. Nothing there got me excited.

Warning for California folks... That's EXACTLY the same setup I used (I also added the Watsen Design 2 LED light) and loved for about 3 weeks - that's as long it took me to be pulled over by a Chippie who kindly took my name and said I should fix that.

As discussed on a different thread, while technically it may be legal, I don't want to attract cops' attention more than necessary and you usually don't win debates with them.
