Dont put a plate on and you wont have to worry about it. FWIW I expected a lot worse variations than what that chart shows - obviously some of the states have tried to standardize it.

Just drill some holes through your ECU and mount the plate that way.

My bike is carburated. Will it work the same if I drill speed holes through the float bowls?

What does that have to do with the different state plate dimensions?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I see a lot of these dimensions going down the list...
7" 4" 1/4" 5-3/4" 2-3/4"
So, for the most part, we have a standard.

These are all standard inch sizes. I don't see where the problem is.

So you're going to make a custom frame and drill through your bike to mount it?

Those holes can lighten it up quite a bit!
