Mounting licence / number plate to carbon LV exhaust strap

Recently fitted a Leo Vince Evo2, to the bike and the integrated tail light is on the way, so I'll need some way too mount the plate.

The exhaust strap is carbon and quite thin.

Has anyone mounted a plate to this strap and had it hold up. It doesn't look like it can take much abuse too me.

In the UK the standard plate size is 9x7 inch!! but I have a 7x5 inch. Still bigger than the US plates though.

Looks like some LV straps were steel, which would be a lot better I imagine, but I doubt I could find one as a spare part.

Any ideas?

Cheers :)

Your bike looks great :D

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 :)

I personally have the TST industries FE, IT flushmounts. All amazing for an awesome price. The FE was a simple install and can be placed in a more central location if preferred.

Cheers for the input :)

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.

Cheers for all the input :)

Carbon fiber is very very strong. It's thin but it's durable. Does your exhaust strap have the 2 big ovals in it or is it solid?

Sorry missed the pictures. You will be fine. Lots of members have done it. I have a carbon strap on my akra exhaust and I have the adjustable on mine.

looks like youll probably need to lower the pipe anyway when you fit your tst IT,looks like it will touch your pipe or be very close to it

Yeah, that's no problem. Its currently raised as high as it will go so it doesn't hit the tail tidy. When I first fitted it, it was prob 3-4cm lower :-)

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?

Cheers :)


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.

Drill 2 holes and nut/bolt in place.
If you want to cut the sides/bottom off you can

Is the adjustable all you are wanting?

Cool, I'll cut the US plate holder myself. Yep, that's all I'm after at the moment :) For the LV of course if it makes any difference.

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

I've been plying with plate positions and it looks like it may be a squeeze to run the plate where the strap fits, unless I angle it a lot, which may get me a ticket still.

Got me thinking about shortening the can slightly by removing the end piece, cutting, and re-rivetting. if I do that, I may mount the bracket on the end of the can, where the metal strap is.

Is the bracket on the tripage metal or plastic, and if it's plastic, do you think it will hold up too the pressure of a rivet gun?
