Hey group, dealer recommended the "new rage" plate holder (pic below) because it has sidemarkers that are more distinguishable than those integrated in the tail light. I could live with one so high up BUT has anybody found a compatible mount that sits lower??? (closer to beneath the rider seat). Local authorities are pretty cool about it where I live so I'm not concerned with regulations. I've had these on all my other bikes but it seems the options are a bit more limited on the MVs. LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE AWARE OF ONE! (+link to vendor site IF you got it!) THANKS ALL!

PS Might not matter but bike is 2017 F3 800

I had the RC tail tidy installed when I bought the bike, but still wanted to tuck it up underneath more. I also looked at the one you've been recommended but I just didn't get the warm fuzzy feeling with it, so I made my own.

I rotated the bracket that bolts underneath to the bike (4 bolts) around 180 degrees, it doesn't fit perfectly as it's uni-directional but it serves it's purpose and even with my OCD I can cope with it. I may make one some day, but there's a lot more I want to do to the bike beforehand.

I then bolted the number plate holder back up and cut off the bottom part where the reflector bolts on to.

I have now fitted some tiny LED indicators (post photos) and for me, the back end is a lot more pretty. I did have a smaller number plate to fit but having been pulled and fined once for it last year I'm not tempting fate with the plod again.

Thanks Highside,
Bike looks nice! Shop is working on mine now, I will ask they try that 180 degree rotation trick you mentioned. I have the RC as well, but that included rc plate holder was never installed. The "F3RC" writing portion just makes it larger than I want. I noticed you installed the SC exhaust, my 2017 did not include it unfortunately...but damn it sounds pretty.

Thanks for the compliment, I've just taken some more photos so you can see what I've bodged and the little gap left...you can't see it looking normally at the bike, and no mud will get into it as I checked what would get contaminated should I leave it (wires are behind plastic undertray other side of it), unless you go ramming a jet wash in there....

I used the Oxfoed Nano LED indicators as they are small and also CE approved, so nice and bright.
