License Plate Light

Have you guys ever been pulled over for not having a license plate light? I have a fender eliminator and I had to take off my license plate light.

Theres ways of putting one back on. Screw lights work really well for that purpose. Lets see a pic of the rear end.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I also have a fender eliminator, but installed a Radiantz LED license plate light.



I also installed a Libertek for my other bike.



The Libertek is so small you can't hardly see it and gives enough light to meet DOT requirements. I put these on in order not to risk a ticket.


What were you thinking??? You can't catch me!

I got pulled over on Lupi's bike cause the plate was flipped over. Only had it out to test the carb work I did. I realized b4 the cop got up to me and I flipped it down. They let me go.

As far as the lights. I have a set similar to the libertec only cost 20-25 for the pair. Got them at Summit Racing. I forget the web addy but you can do a search on them.

Not so far (knock on wood). I guess my brake light is pretty bright. Of course I've never been pulled over for anything on my bike yet.

I had a cop tell me that my license plate was falling off (literally) over a year ago before I got the back fixed.

for a really clean look...

get rid of that plate altogether. If you want that "trick" look all you have to do is mount the license plate on the back of your jacket, then duct tape a mini-mag lite above it! Seriously though I'd like to find a different place to mount my tag too. As far as your plate, you might get stopped and issued a warning if your plate isn't illuminated enough, but I think that's the worst that can happen. Personally I'd leave it alone and let your brake lights or "his/hers" headlights light 'em up..
