Default how is your plate mounted on your F4i ?....pics please...

this related to my WTB thread for a rear fender) just a lil f.y.i.

i am wanting to see how people have their plates and rear tail lights mounted on any 01-02 F4i's that do NOT have them secured to the factory rear fender.

I finally got a ticket for my license plate not being visible as it is mounted way under the fender... it is there cause of how someone before me just hacked the whole rear of the factory fender off, where the stock tail light bolts and the license plate bolts.

i have the problem of how to securely mount my tail light and license plate so it is "Visible"

without buying a new factory rear fender I am curious to see ideas.


thanx

that is what is currently holding my tail light into place... one (was two) "L" bracket that is cut, and bent and twisted...

(the other one was secure until i looked one day and it was simply missing. lol

so i retightened the other side, until on the freeway i heard a crash and it too gave...

so in my case cheap is not exactly the upper hand here, i just not sure i want to buy a new factory rear fender to cut at it...

Made mine myself.
$3 bones, aluminum wood-ties at home-depot. Cut and welded.



Also have "light-up" plate-bracket bolts with white LED's, to give illumination at night with red reflective tops.

Total cost: $11 bones.

Ticket?
Sorry, no tickets.
I've actually read the DPS code on license placement in Texas, and I'm perfectly legal.
I'm not sure you know what you are talking about.

Texas Legal code for license plate and inspection stickers. Texas DPS.

-Plate must be behind rear axel.
-Plate must be illuminated by a "White" light.
-Plate must be visible un-obstructed and clear of vehicle moving parts.
-State inspection sticker must be on (behind plate is acceptable) or besides plate.

And a few more that are more for mmore for cages that motorbikes.

I'm adhering to all of them,
and just in case, I took my motorbike to a couple buds that are local PD and traffic officers who also gave me the thumb's up.

Below is the actual code, I think I forgot the plate placement part.
But you get the idea.

TRC 502.409.

WRONG, FICTITIOUS, ALTERED, OR OBSCURED LICENSE PLATE.

(a) A person commits an offense if the person attaches to or displays on a motor vehicle a number plate or registration insignia that:

(1) is assigned to a different motor vehicle;

(2) is assigned to the vehicle under any other motor vehicle law other than by the department;

(3) is assigned for a registration period other than the registration period in effect;

(4) is fictitious;

(5) has blurring or reflective matter that significantly impairs the readability of the name of the state in which the vehicle is registered or the letters or numbers of the license plate number at any time ;

(6) has an attached illuminated device or sticker, decal, emblem, or other insignia that is not authorized by law and that interferes with the readability of the letters or numbers of the license plate number or the name of the state in which the vehicle is registered; or

(7) has a coating, covering, protective material, or other apparatus that:

(A) distorts angular visibility or detectability;

(B) alters or obscures one-half or more of the name of the state in which the vehicle is registered; or

(C) alters or obscures the letters or numbers of the license plate number or the color of the plate.

(b) Except as provided by Subsection (f), an offense under Subsection (a) is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than $200, unless it is shown at the trial of the offense that the owner knowingly altered or made illegible the letters, numbers, and other identification marks, in which case the offense is a Class B misdemeanor.

[double amendments to the same provision]

(c) *

[as added by Acts 2007, 80th Leg., R.S., HB 1623]

A court may dismiss a charge brought under Subsection (a)(3), (5), (6), or (7) if the defendant:

(1) remedies the defect before the defendant's first court appearance; and

(2) pays an administrative fee not to exceed $10.

(c) *
*[as added by Acts 2007, 80th Leg., R.S., SB 369]

Subsection (a)(7) may not be construed to apply to:

(1) a trailer hitch installed on a vehicle in a normal or customary manner;

(2) a transponder, as defined by Section 228.057, that is attached to a vehicle in the manner required by the issuing authority;

(3) a wheelchair lift or wheelchair carrier that is attached to a vehicle in a normal or customary manner;

(4) a trailer being towed by a vehicle; or

(5) a bicycle rack that is attached to a vehicle in a normal or customary manner.

(d), & (e)*

[*repealed by Acts 1997, 75th Leg.]

(f) An offense under Subsection (a)(4) is a Class B misdemeanor.



* * * * *



TRC 548.255.
