I know legally you are supposed to have a light on your licenseplate, but I have a fender eliminator with no light on my plate. I prefer it that way. I dont really like to make it any easier for the cops to see who I am. :mrgreen: I dont plan on changing it unless I get a fix-it ticket. THe cops can't tell you dont have a light since they have that nasty bright light on your reflective plate. Just my two cents.
I know you are suppose to have a light, but do they really bother you about it? I mean technically with the car behind the bike, its very visable. Now if it was tucked under the tail then thats understand able.
After my first fender eliminator broke off, made my own and wired in little blue LED. the one i made mounted on the other side of the mounts and I tucked the LED up inside the undertail and it shined through the wiring hole. Was not that bright, but was legal.
I then won a pivot kit from the forum contests and that sucker will light up a city block.
R6AJ, did you get your fender eliminator from McCoy Motorsports? Looks like the one that I got but haven't installed yet. I was wondering about the license plate light too. Bought the fender eliminator for like 70 bucks including the turn signals and the bracket that came in the mail was pretty cheap looking for that much money.
I'm in the process of finishing up my home-depot eliminator.
I used the Simpson Strong-Tie bracket (found elsewhere on the site here) and mounted my tag just a little bit low (like 1/2") and Drilled 3 holes across the top. Wired in 3 small "flashlight" bulbs (smaller than 1/4" in diameter) from radioshack. I haven't got the lights in, but with just one held up in place last night it was pretty bright so I'm sure 3 will be plenty.
Just gonna black out the top and tip of the bulb so only the lower side of it shows through. I'll post pics when I'm done
I took some scrap metal and drilled a couple of holes in it and so I could mount it between the undertail and the plate bracket. I drilled a couple of really tiny holes for the zipties to go through. Then I crimped some barrel connectors onto the wires so it would connect with the stock wiring and still quick disconnect. I painted the top black and polished and clearcoated the underside of the bracket so that light would reflect off of it.
I got really bored one rainy weekend, that's when the danger starts. :flame
