Boredom...

often leads to awesomeness.

This afternoon I was bored so i started dismantling the tail of the 919 in an attempt to figure out a decent way to mount the plate under the bike and get rid of the snowshovel ...ended up being a pretty decent success.

Also slapped on a Napoleon bar end mirror . Definitely a cleaner look for the 919...

Bar End Mirror:


After Undertail:



Undertail was done using NOTHING but what came on the bike and drilling two very small holes in the main fender.

Gonna add a couple turn signals and a white LED strip over the plate....maybe?

I'm thinking about just removing the whale tale, re-drilling the license plate, and bending it at the top so I can just screw it into the two fender mount tabs.

you don't have to bend it chris..

just mark and (carefully) drill 2 holes in the undertray... easy

I want to bend it and mount it to the fender mount tabs so I don't have to look at them sticking out. I have access to a shop full of sheet metal tools so it shouldn't be a big deal.

I actually had thought of crumpling my plate up really badly so it was basically illegible, then mounting it back on the bike by one screw. Then if I get pulled over, I can just say I had a wreck and fixed everything but the plate. Just for fun, you know.

EDIT: There are some guys in the sport bike crowd here that I've seen use some creative mounting techniques. One guy is using paperclips and another is using tie wire. Drew rides with them and said the guy with the tie wire lost his plate on the way to Louisville last fall. Never did find it.

here in florida a movable license plate will get you a $1000 fine... also if it is in front of the rear tire... also no light on it... also if it is mounted on its side...

I heard about that nonsense, but i did hear it with a twist.

On top of the 1k fine, you're also looking at impounding?

Truth?
