    Ok so I got pulled over again for my tag on the biosensor beingnvisible enough not to mention that even after they ran my license n my tag and then my vin they had no records of my motorcycle being registered even tho I have a sticker and the paper with the vin n tag number on it.. anyways I know everyone has seen the tag brackets that are on a spring hinge and have a small roller on it. They mount under the tail usually on or above the rear hugger… if anyone knows where to buy this and maybe post a link it would be greatly appreciated. I looked at some companies and eBay but could not inc it

    Can you have one made? Would be a simple task for a decent machine shop. Maybe even cheaper and less waiting time. When its finiahed you can have it powder coated, painted or you can rattke can it yourself. Just my .02

    My ’04 has a generic plate holder. It is tucked enough to not need the roller or pivot. It is just 4 small brackets and I bought two led lights to replace the license bolts. All from Amazon and was under $50 total. The pic is not all that great but not much to see. You could make one pretty easy if you have the tools. I will look for the links for you when I get home later.

    @yanahmean bring it to the shop and when we do your lights we’ll take a look at it. Between you, dad, and myself we can probably make it. Look how nice mine turned out.

    @dubv wothout a doubt we can come up with something lol.. I want it to be as hidden as possible but not get me pulled over every year… it being hidden has been beneficial so far but at the same time its gotten unwanted attention (no tickets just attention).. the bracket that is with that eliminator kit is ideal but the price is stupid… pops even said f’em and leave it lol

    I had some issues with my tag bracket yesterday. Mine is only held with 1 bolt through the battery box. When I had my stock exhaust I tack welded a bolt to the up pipe to secure the other side. I didn’t want to do that to the Hyperflow…. guess I should have. The single bolt would periodically work loose and slide down a few inches.

    Well yesterday it came loose enough to slide vertical and it cut through the insulation on my light for the tag. This caused the fuse to blow. Just an FYI this fuse also goes to your speedo and rear running light.

    So today I spent moving my tag. The Hyperflow comes with 2 little “L” brackets for the tag but the 05-06 doesn’t come with a light. I fabed up a little bracket to fit a light.

    Not real happy with the new location but I shouldn’t have any more problems out of it. I’ll post pics in SShakiRRa’s build thread.

    Home Depot has long hinges.
    Pull the center rod out.
    Cut the two pieces to length you need.
    Grind a few places between where the rod goes through.
    Put some springs in.
    Insert rod.
    Flare the rod ends.
    Ten Dollars.

    LED light with signals:

    Twenty-six dollars shipped.

    Couple notes, feel free to tell me to keep my 2 cents:
    * I would be cautious with the LED strip. Primary being how visible is it in daytime riding? I don’t have any info on intensity or viewing angle of the LEDs, etc. But real world test, would you make your lights less visible in daylight than the stock lights?

    * Make sure that you correct the fast flash. I bought and installed a flasher relay for my brother. He was fine with how it was, but there is not a lot of color variation between red and amber (yellow-ish). I was concerned, because I had a hard time seeing his turn signals when riding behind him and LOOKING FOR THEM.

    * Make sure that the bracket / hindge, whatever has some bite. I have read a lot of forms where a couple bolts (strait line) in an angle bracket worked there way out (in plastic). Rocking back and forth with the wind, etc. It was advised to make them longer and use more than 1 row to mount them. Personally, I used 2x 6″ angle brackets that were bent to fit with a vise and hammer. I have not had any problems with it and it still has a minimalist look. Mine mounts into the plastic, so disregard if your mounting into metal. My CBR also has side mount pipes.

    I use hyper-lites around my plate and they would probably work for your purpose and are super bright and very well made. Full disclosure though; they aren’t cheap and I use mine ‘in addition’ to stock lights not ‘in place of’ although technically I guess they could be.
