Well, a d!ck trooper rolled on me the other day for nothing other than making me adjust my license plate. But the problem is, it's a molded piece of plastic that you can't just "adjust." So I'm asking all of you creative 600rr.net members to get those wheels in your heads' turning and help me think of a way I could make this legal.

I thought about trimming down the license plate portion and adding L-brackets but I just don't think it would look that great.

My dad recommended that I heat up the place where the plastic bends and adjust it but if I fuk it up, I'm sh!t out of luck and will have to buy a new eliminator.

ANY idea appreciated even if you think it will look stupid or not work!

which kit is that??..it looks like the same kit my buddy has...I think you have the bracket for the plate mounted backwards...i wouldnt see why a kit would be made like that...i would check over your directions again and/or see if you can switch how the license plate bracket is bolted to the kit..

go to home depot/lowes
buy a piece of aluminum bar stock
measure off a length as wide as your plate and mark it
bend 90 degrees at the mark
measure an inch and a half to 2 inches
drill holes for the plate
on the short section drill a larger hole
mount plate and lights if you have them
attach mount to right side passenger peg.
adjust to a legal angle and tighten. it won't interfere with the hugger, is visible, and legal.

doesnt plastic become malable when heated? i would just heat it up a little and bend it down. not too much heat, dont want it to melt. its only holding the license plate so heating it isnt gonna affect it too much, unless your hittin like 150+.


unless im missing something here, thats what i would do.

Thats nice. Does it only mount on the right side or how does it mount on the left. How did u mount it to the peg, my bolt doesnt go thru all the way enough to put a nut on it?

I put it between the subframe and the peg. You would have to cut your battery tray some to make it mount on the left. I could route the light wires on the right side, but I had them on the left before and I was too lazy to take my tail off.
