Side mount liscense plate bracket - need some help

I just purchased a side mount license plate bracket that gets bolted to the bolt that holds the rear tire on. Once thatís removed I'm thinking that the tire will need to be realigned. Is there an easy way of doing this?

I'm sure there will be lots of methods posted, but I use the marks on the swingarm as an initial guide, then I eyeball the chain to make sure its straight. If its crooked the tire needs to be adjusted. I've changed out a few back tires and haven't had a problem.

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

if i'm thinking right, as long as you don't move the locking adjustment/chain tension bolts on either side, you shouldn't have to worry about realigning...just make sure when you retighten the axle nut, the axle puller blocks are flush against the adjustment bolts...that way the wheel is back in the same place that you started from...that is, if i'm thinking right...

***LASER*** Correct I have the bracket you are talking about, and did it just that way was very easy CBR1000RR....

****NOTE**** the bracket caused many pull overs and since it is not on a custome chopper / Cruiser it is not accepted.. Not saying that is right but just a fact.. So, be prepared to get pulled over for it. So your riding better be stellar....

Pulled over in:

City (Diversey)
Lemont
Plainfield
LeGrange
Villa Park
I-55
90 / 94
355

All were because Tag placement.. Good Luck.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

No No, believe it or not no speeding tickets involved in any of these events, oddly enough...All was cool, that was only reason I was pulled.. got 5 tickets to fix out of the 8 stops, 2 warnings, 1 no insurance card court appearance, my dumbass didnt have it on me. Got dropped..

So if you got the one online for like 79.00 buck I would consider a return if possible.....

IMHO, I resold mine on Ebay at a slight loss....

Not worth the trouble IMHO. Try to return it.

If not, you can use string to allign the tires.

Try here Align string method

Or here Another string explanation

Or here String alignment precudure...another

I am sure laser is better, but if you dont want to spend the dough, string is the way to go.
