My friends on the forum failed me.

The state sent me a new plate to replace the 7 year old one on my bike. While installing the plate I noticed how horrid the old plastic bolts looked. I could not figure out why my friends on here did not point this out years ago. Why did they let me ride around with nasty plastic bolts on my bike. Problem solved tonight. Since I had to order new bolts I could not stop at just 2.

I'll tell you what, big fella, the biggest issue I see here is that ECU, not the plastic bolts.
Get a bloody Microtec!

Love you.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

I am so sorry Randrew., never meant to let you down.

....I must admit, the stunning overall beauty of your bike's details masked the tacky plastic tag bolts from my vision.....of course, the plastic is probably lighter than the Ti. Maybe you should have just gotten some classier plastic ones??


Sorry about not alerting you to the mag hub! Thought you surely must have had one by now!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Seriously you don't have a microtec! Who are you? I don't even know you any more.

I need another one. We will get Alex to order 2 and get a discount

I found a great way to mount the plates..Yes I know ours are bigger ..blah blah..

But there's no need to drill and fiddle about with bolts anymore. I use double sided number plate mounting tape strips...Works a treat..

Joe......is that a Domino's sticker on your fairing ?
You seem to have a soft spot for them lately.
I would have thought an appropriately placed fire extinguisher would be more practical
