Default HP4 - Cleaned up tail-

Ok-

a couple pople asked me what i used to mount my plate after putting in an integrated real tail light and removed the turn signals-

Pretty simple- Cost - about $3.00
Its so easy a Cave Man could do it.

Remove the stock license plate holder.

Slightly bent my license plate to match contour of undertail where I was going to mount it.

Removed the undertail

Drilled 2 small holes in the license plate and undertail in the same location to be able to bolt together.

Attached plate to undertail using stainless hardware I purchased at Ace Hardware.

Re-attached undertail
--
I live in Florida and have no inspections-
Even with no plate light I wont get stopped.
Been riding like this on other bikes for YEARS.
Only pulled over 1 time with a warning past 15yrs.

Below are some pics-

Does that plate have some sentimental value to you? Cause it kind of looks like a wart on a princess.

It's just a plate...
At least I didn't compound off the numbers.

As soon as a plate does anything more than get me a ticket via red light camera, speed trap camera, toll booth, the man himself- then ill put a bit more into it.

Man u guys are rough...
If I had feelings they might be hurt.. lol.

At least I got my HP4..

Christ bro, you drilled into the plastic?

Get some corner braces for .98 cents at Lowes and use the original holes for the tail mud guard.
