Want to relocate rear License Plate and Taillight

I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but want to see what others have used to replace the stock rear fender. I'm not looking to build a bracket myself, but would like to use a quality one from a reputable supplier.

My goal is to relocate the tag (US tag) without all the bulky clutter that's there now. I'd also like to remove the stock turn signals and utilize the existing stock rear under tail lights as the blinkers. I found the below part which I believe would solve what I'm looking for, but would like to get others experience and/or suggestions first....

Depending on where you are in the US, that set up won't pass inspection.
I used a Melotti Tail Tidy and Rizoma LED signals.

I need to check out the Melotti Tail Tidy kit. I like the location of your tag. I'd still like to integrate the blinkers in with the rear brake lights.

Any others have this setup? Trying to get some ideas before going with the one site I found.

Chris;
depends on your State laws....
you can mount the stock indicators in the rear vents LEDs in the front on F4s

here in California they are supposed to be 9" apart, I use a Clear Alternatives LED one piece......COP pulls up behind me......I just signal right, left repeatedly and they go away

I also use a single LED license plate light

we don't have ANY inspections here at all

Thanks everyone. I think I'm going to grab the Clear Alternatives Integrated Turn Signals from GP Racing I found on this site. And for the tag, I'm going with what silentservice703 has, and get the a Melotti Tail Tidy. Thanks for the pics!

I have the same setup on my F4: Melotti Tidy Tail and the clear alternatives integrated running/stop/turn taillight. It looks great, but I just failed my Delaware DMV inspection due to the turn signals not being 8" apart. I wired up some cheap signals and passed the other day. Just be aware you may have to swap back for inspections.

This sounds crazy, but i took the stock one off the fender, bent it with a clamp, and attached it onto the bracket that holds the two pipes together. It worked flawlessly. I used a $5 LED to light up the plate, and ordered an integrated tail light.

It really made the rear end look a lot cleaner!





Best of luck! Happy to answer any questions.

Hopefully you're tyre won't collect that. Not too many places left around here where you can still run a numberplate hidden like that.
On a side note, your bikes a F4 1000R, only the 312 came in R and RR version.

Mount the the turn signal units inside the tail cover in the vents and just use a small bracket for the plate if you don't want to use an all in one light
