License plate bracket

My license plate bracket is huge, obviously designed for a European plate. Has anyone altered the stock bracket to fit an American plate? It'd be about a quarter of the present size, I'm considering using my dremel to cut off the undesired portion. Anyone have a better method? Is there a bracket sized for an American plate available without using one of the eliminator kits?

Lots of companies make fender eliminators. Check in the gallery and you will find dozens of them on members bikes.

Determine first if you are going to use the stock rear blinkers or go with integrated blinkers in the tail lights or in the rear vents.

There is a company that makes a very nice kit for integrating the blinkers into the tail lights. Looks great when combined with the carbon fiber rear fairing.

Just remove the big euro-spec bracket and mount the plate directly to the fender.

I originally cut the bracket and drilled new holes. I later replaced it with a homemade fender eliminator w/ led light.

I have the Evoluzion bracket as sold by Motovation

I like it. Easy install and tucks the stock turn signals in a bit tighter. Check my albums

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

I got mine from Ducati. It is the same one that came on my 05 S2R and it costs around $8.00.

Barry,
Fazer's suggestion is the easiest, but if you do not want to drill more holes in your fender (I didn't because I bought one from MV Special Parts in CF) cutting the original bracket and touching it up a little black paint is easy enough to do.
