I have been thinking about getting the hotbodies kit but I am wondering where do people mount the licence plate when they install the kit.

I have seen plates on the swing arm on the left but I dont really want to do that.

Any pics of bikes with hotbodies and different plate mounts?

you can buy/bend L shaped metal brackets and drill holes into the undertail. The instructions tell you to take that approach. I just mounted mine on the swing arm though.

I personally did not wanna use those cheap azz L brackets, nor drill holes in my nice new undertail. So, I designed and made my own plate mount, no drilling required.

You can see my site(see sig or click pic) for more pics:

Doug speaks truth. I got one of his plate brackets, and after giving it a rattle-can flat black paint job, it looks and works great. You'll have some left-over wires after installing the HB undertail (the plate light) which DZ's will wire directly up to.

Plus he's a great guy.

Looks awesome!! The only concern I have is I dont have that odd shaped placstic piece that goes between the tail lights. I have a Competition Werkes kit and they use a stainless filler piece with a bolt going into the larger stainless piece on the bottom. I was wondering if there would be other problems when I installed the kit since I was missing that part?

How much for the licence plate bracket?

Does Dougz sell the hotbodies fender elim kit?

You can find those "T" tail pieces on ebay sometimes for under $15....or ask around to people on the board here.

I make and sell the plate holders, complete with all stainless steel hardware, for $45. $10 extra if you want a plate light added on.

I do not sell Hot Bodies undertails.
