Memories of a man in his old age are the deeds of a man in his prime
Here are some photo's of mine. Yes, it's dark, it's winter and it's a daily ride so there's leaves, mud and allsorts stuck too it :P
As you can see, the strap on mine is a lot further back, my plate is a lot bigger than the US, and the strap is quite thin.
I'm concerned that firstly the strap will break, but even if it didn't, with the size of my (illegal and much smaller plate), it will hit the rear wheel easily.
I wish I lived in the US lol.
There is not much adjustability....I think the only solution is too fit a second mount somehow, nearer the end of the can, but I'm not sure how to do this, other than captive nuts like the tripage stock exhaust fitment...I don't want too drill my new can though..
//edit ... of course I still have the evotech tail tidy fitted awaiting the tripage.. that will be gone when and if I can mount the plate :)
Regarding the TST...I would not make one short trip without a police stop and £60 fine. It's much too far back.
The Tripage looks great, but those two bolts/nuts passing through that thin carbon strap? Looks decidedly weak to me. Last think I want is to damage the strap as a spare part would be a PITA and mean downtime on the bike. If it was a steel strap, I'd probably give it a go.
I think I am just going to have too come up with a custom solution, or at least a custom strap too mount a tripage to.
Good thread indeed, and answered all my queries and concerns. Looks like this will be the route to take. I'm sold :)
@T -- how do you modify the holder? simply cut it? Could I easily modify the US version myself? Just thinking my plate is 7x5, so wondering if I can possibly retain some of the sides to provide more support for the plate?
Also how much shipping to UK?
ps. Image on this page is out of date. May confuse people with more recent bikes and think there are no products for them if they only look at the pictures. Image should say 2007 - 2011 (or 2012/13?) rather than 2007-2009. http://tripageled.com/store/index.ph...ory&path=42_61
Question about this.. I'm about to do the exact same thing with the exact same setup(carbon fiber strap on Leo Vince). The wiring harness running from my Tripage FE has a spare two prong red female plug that is not plugged into anything. The previous owner gave me a bag of spare parts and it included a unused red wire with the male part of the plug. If I purchased the above Tripage license plate mount would the lights plug into this red plug? If not, how is it wired? Thanks!
You can wire the led lightbar into the red plug.
Black to black
white to red
Get some heat shrink at radioshack and you can run a sleeve over the wire and then twist them together and lay them down on the wire and run the heat shrink over them and heat up to shrink it. You can solder the connections as well but if you can't solder then that will work just fine. Plug it into the taillight and you have tag lights. T
Is the one you got the same one from tripages website? I just want to make sure before I order it I didn't see the small bracket that goes in between the carbon fiber strap and the led license plate holder
