anyone have this kit called the eclipse kit. supposed to black out your license plate at a flick of a switch. what do you guys and gals think? is it worth it?

Seems like a lot of money. I used a $3 cabinet hinge and just reach back and flip it up whenever necessary.

Looks pretty trick if you ask me. I just wonder what the fine would be if you get caught with it installed on the street? Would be great for running the toll roads here in Dallas. But I have heard at over 120mph you are going to fast for the cameras shutter speed and the pic will be blurry.

in england they did a test on tv,using a ferrari. 137mph it had to go before the cam` wouldn`t flash
No worries then, I can go 137 easy.

well here in hawaii, i checked with a friend who is a cop and told me the state law concerning license plates;
there shall be no cover of any kind covering or be placed over the license plate; such as plastic, glass or any material. the only thing legal here is frames.
so i guess this is illegal. oh well i just have to get one or two. just to irritate my friend.

same in CT. can't have anything obscuring your license late what so ever. Did I mention I live in a police state?

OH well, i'd take a chance.
List of illegal things on my bike.
1. No mirrors
2. Rear signals not 9" apart
3. License plate not readable within 8ft
4. License plate light is blue, and dim
6. **** 'em if they can't take a joke :gas
I think that's it.

Hey when was the last time you seen a Harley pulled over for laoud pipes? Never! What about the licence plate with no light.? Never! The list can go on and on. I paid a 300 dollar ticket for doing a wheelie in bumper to bumper in myrtle beach during the biker week there. Point is how was I doing a wheelie if my tire never left the ground? Must have been that R on my back that pissed them off!!!
