Anyone change the headlight/numberplate to a YZ style one? What did you use to secure it on? I'm putting on a One Idustries plate and the bottom sits fine in the 2 holes, and I'm flush against the top clamps. I used the strap around the bars and I tried getting a longer screw to go into the top clamp but it wasn't quite long enough. I want to find a longer screw with possible a threaded spacer but Home Depot didn't have what I was looking for so I need to try something else. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I used a piece of plumbers tape (metal strapping with a hole about every 1/2"). I bent it on a ~45 degree axis, to a 90 degree bend, painted it black and used it for three years.

PS don't forget the YZ spacer and seal to replace the odo drive, at the wheel.

I'll probably go zip tie till I can find something alittle more permenant. Bill do you have any pics of that. I used a rubber cap to cover the odo hole. 20 cents at the Depot, fit real good.
