That's very clean!
I wonder how much the LEO will hate it here in CT.
Also, any clearance issues when the suspension is fully compressed?
I'd def be interest in something like this at an affordable price!

did you have to drill at all or were you able to get small brackets on existing fasteners? I'm curious also to any obstruction viewing from behind when loaded.. nicely lit though.

No clearance issue....even when riding with a passenger (175lb + 125lb)

No modification needed. I utilized existing bolt holes. I just had to get longer bolts with this design but might change it for the final design to use existing fasteners.

what about actually seeing the plate from behind(as if in a car) when loaded?

Looks very nice and clean, but I'd hate to be riding that and get caught in the rain :eek:

Where did you get those turn signals though? I've been looking for some like those, me likey :)

That setup would most likely get you a ticket in the state of TN......plate location.

It is still very visible considering the location of the tag. I will try to take a picture from inside a car positioned behind the FZ.
To do it right you should be on the bike and have someone else take the photo from the car. I'm curious about the visibility too.
