919 Rear End Remade

Yeah yeah, I just can't leave well enough alone and trying to get a cleaner look back there Moved the plate under the fender (the two allen bolts are the perfect width for NY plates), added (blacked out) Rizoma caps, and installed black Sato rear sets.

That is similar to where I have my plate. My is a little further forward and lays flatter. You can't see it standing there, but it is very visible from a vehicle 10 feet behind it.

From this POV it looks like a meeting of the hugger might Ensue.

The plate is further forward than the photo makes you think. There's a good 6" between the hugger and the bottom of the plate. And like RC's, it's partially visible from directly behind (like the photo) but completely visible more than 8' back.

Ahh...OK, It looks like its right there on top of it.
I like how it looks, I also like it the old way too.

Yeah, if the front of the rear wheel is moving vertically 6", I got bigger problems than the license plate

xrmikey, I like the old mount too. But when I noticed that the two bolts that hold the inner fender on were the same width as the mounting holes for the plate, I had to give it a try. Not sure if I'll keep it there (cops may not like it) but I figured nothing ventured, nothing gained.

royalchoppers - I was looking at the bike last night trying to figure out where you mounted the plate...did you use existing holes or did you drill?

I used those to bolts as well, with L-brackets... it's visible from a car behind me, but the mufflers block view from a vehicle behind you in a different lane. Wonder how cops feel about it. I don't do anything stupid on the road, so I don't attract negative attention, therefore I'm not so worried about it. I also drilled a hole on the underside of the tail and placed a light in it, so that it points at the plate.

It is angled so it doesn't make contact with anything when the suspension compresses.

Lookin' good DLS! Love the idea of using the bracket -- I just bent the plate when I mounted it to see how it looked under there. But fashioning a piece of angle iron would be easy and drop it down a bit to increase visibility. What kind of light did you rig up?

nice, Ken, is there any part left on your bike that is stock? What is left to do now?

The rizoma grab caps was the first mod I did. I think I found this website because my damn key got stuck in the tail after I reinstalled it, and I couldn't figure out what to do!

Anyways good work....

Yes - engine and suspension are stock And no plans to fiddle with them. Yup, I'm pretty much done now. I have a pair of wave rotors and HH pads waiting to be installed but that should be the end.

If I do anything more, it will be to Jet-Hot the headers and maybe paint the plastics in a couple years. It sure has been fun to paint this canvas

I am never posting a picture of my bike where you can see my tires for fear of being ridiculed.

Ken, how did you make your Rizoma hole caps black? Paint, powdercoat, or anodize?

Just sanded them a bit and shot them with a few coats of black.

My friend had some "194" bulb sockets laying around... I installed one of those and popped in a bulb. Either that or I used the stock license plate bulb/socket... can't remember right now.

Ok, I just checked it out... I actually used the stock bulb and socket. I just took pics and that's when I realized my license plate light was out... Whoops! Now I'm glad this thread exists.

i feel like an idiot now for spending money on a fender eliminator, that looks so nice, and makes the bike look a lot nicer with that big open back end.
