Question Fender elim help?

Hello all,

Let me first say I have searched the forum all ready. I got pulled over yesterday for obstructed license plate and received a warning. I know it's every officers discretion about what they think is legal or not. I was advised by this officer if I move it up just a little I would not have anymore problems. I had modified the Bikelitez SS kit by bending the license mount facing the rear already. Just a side note, I don't want to buy another FE kit. Any input is much appreciated. Thanks all

I was thinking about something like this. Does anyone know who this is or have a idea of what he might have used?

This is what I did prior to getting pulled over:

personal opinion, that shouldn't have raised a fuss -- your angle isn't bad at all.

that one might just be a home solution, doesn't look familiar. looks like it might be attached to his pegs somehow.

btw -- obscuring your plate doesn't help much when the reflection is perfectly visible in the paint

you can easily make a braket to mount the tag. my concern would be that you will still get pulled because of the angle to clear the tire during suspension compression. (don't forget the light, they'll pull you for that next)

I had mine mounted to the battery box on my 06 and got pulled twice. Made the bracket out of sheet metal.

I tried pulling it half way back but it looked like the tire would hit the plate if the suspension was fully compressed. Ended up moving it all the way back, making another bracket out of sheet metal that attached to the heat shield on top of the muffler. This was on an 06. Got pulled later for no light on the tag. Had to plumb that back too.

you can see the old chrome nuts where the tag was mounted on the battery box in the second picture.

you guys have such clean under tails!

As the video says, it's a TST Industries FE in that vid.
I don't think yours was obstructed, it was just his opinion or maybe he was just bored and pulled you over for that.
Not sure how long that warning will stay on your record for, but you can keep it and if they pull you over, just say that you did bring it up as it was placed lower than that, they wouldn't know.

hyco_honda, I was thinking about that also. That's what the cop said "he couldn't read the bottom of the plate from 15ft away." I had my wife in the car about 15ft behind me and she said she could see it clearly. I have also had many other sheriffs, constables, local officers behind me and did not get pulled over. i have a strip of 8 or 9 led strip from autozone on there. It is way bright. I will take another pic and post it when I get home. I made another light bracket to put on top of the Bikelitze mount. Your 06 looked pretty nice...

Thanks SamRR, I thought he was talking about the integrated tail light. I will keep the warning with me. That's a good idea.

it IS the taillight that is by TST. if you read the vid description on yt, he mentions that the FE is by Hotbodies. (also that it looks good but is "a poorly made piece of junk" -- a common observation from Hotbodies buyers in my experience.)

Very nice erick1670, I'm looking at moving to the back of the bike as another option.

Where'd you buy the material for the plate backing?
Light mount and mount to moto?
How'd you machine it ? Cut the metal into a square.. round the edges/holes?

That's what I thought, now I get it. I looked at some Hotbodies undertail vids. So the bracket come with the undertail...Still gives me an idea though.
