Talking License Plate Mounting

Hey Guys,

Looking for a few ideas on how people have mounted their license plates. I just put a new shark skinz solo tail and under tail on my bike and I am really not wanting to re-mount my place under my new undertail. I really like how clean it looks! I am thinking of making a custom mount that would attach the place vertically where the rear foot pegs once were. I have seen the swing arm brackets but that looks really low to me. I bought the LED licence plate bolts so lights on the plate will not be an issue. Any thoughs, suggestions, or ideas would be appreciated!

You could bolt a 90 degree aluminum bracket to the sub frame and cut out a slot for it to slip through the tail? or just make it easy and bolt a small 90 degree bracket to the bottom of the tail? show us a pic!

A friend of mine who has a 2002 954rr. He put this one on his bike. It fits the F4i also. Side note... In Minnesota you can now get a vanity plate for motorcycles that's vertical. It's readable in a vertical position.

Bolting plate as high as the pegs? On the side....would there be any drag...once you hit 80mph...just a thought

Thanks guys. I am still thinking about making a custom plate mount to use the rear peg bolts. I would mount it at a slight angle pretty much inline with the exhaust hanger. Basically you would not see the exhaust hanger from the rear only the plate vertically. I have held that stupid plate all over the bike and still undecided. Does anyone know if it is illegal to mount a bike plate vertically? I live in Ohio. A buddy of mine says it is not illegal to have it mounted vertically, only illegal not to have a light on the plate.

Eh, I believe that putting it here would create alot of unneeded drag on the bike. Anywhere under the seat or above the rear tire wouldnt create any drag.

Checkered Past,
If you really like "how clean" your bike/undertail looks, mounting your plate anywhere but above the rear wheel will negate that clean look. Just mount a small plate bracket on the undertail, mount the plate, done...& it'll still clean looking.
