Hi All,

I recently installed a Jardine slip-on system and I am having some trouble figuring out how to get the license plate on the bike now.

Previously, with my stock system, there was an under tail heat shield where the previous owner just screwed in the license plate (flat. i.e. you could tell a license plate was present, but could not read it).

With the new slip-on, I took the under tail heat shield off and now I cannot for the life of me find a place to stick the license plate.

Any suggestions? Where did you guys stick yours?

(I have a small metal bracket to hold the license plate, but I literally can't find a place to put it toward the back).

Thanks!

Go here and get a fender eliminator kit.

Or you can cheap out and get a hose clamp, a couple of 90 deg angles, an aluminum flat bar and a couple of bolts to hold it all together. I spent about 10 bucks and a few minutes of prep to get mine mounted.

I have mine bolted into the battery tray. I used screws with rounded heads and put them into the grooves so they don't rub the bottom of the battery.

Same here. I bought the TCT Industries FE.

If I ever get ticketed for my plate location, I am going this route. I like it.

Thanks all. I got even lazier and went with some zip ties down near the battery. Was thinking the same as the above, where if I get ticketed for it, I will figure something else out.

Here in CT though, cops seem to have other things to worry about.

I did something kinda similar. I got a piece of 1" metal strapping with pre-punched holes along the center of it(kinda looks like plumbers tape). Cut it down to about a 5" long piece. Then bent it at maybe a 55 degree angle. On one end 1 bolt through it into the batt tray, other end 1 bolt through it into the license plate. Its surprisingly sturdy, doesn't vibrate much or wiggle out of position, plus if it wants to kiss the hugger you can bend it however you need to.

Then for lights I ordered two little LEDS mounted them on the corners of the plate and wired into the rear lighting harness. No tickets thus far :banger: (*as I knock on wood)

Be careful, if those zip ties brake your plate will be long gone and you'll have to go through the bigger process of getting a replacement.

I used a license plate hanger that was spring loaded and fitted to the bottom of the battery tray. Looked really neat, but the UK Police didn't like it much, so I had to take it off. Must dig that out and sell it.........
