License plate bracket for late model wr's

So I've bought wr head/tail lights for my 2016 450fx with the intention of plating it for enduros, wondering what people with street legal wr's used for a license plate holder? I can't seem to find anything from Yamaha.

I sent you a PM about the license plate bracket........

One of the nicest is made by Ryco Motorsport.

I had to make one because I couldn't find anyone selling just the bracket...  always seems to be part

of the full dual sport kit.      Ryco seemed to be the same way.   

I whacked one out of a 6 dollar tub I found at Lowes in the sheetrock area.   I just pulled the lower piece off the tail light,  made it fit pretty close with two holes drilled in it for the capture.    

 

Then before I sandwiched it in between the tail light and the lower cover I heated the the area that would be squished up with a propane torch till it was very pliable then screwed it all together before it cooled.

 

Mount the plate and trimmed to size after that.

 

It's flexible,   I can push the plate to the fender or flatten it out and it just springs back into place.   I't held up to being kicked multiple times and about 800 miles so far.   

 

The bonus,  I have enough material to make three more,  LOL.

Great idea, I have one of those tubs under my deck, I was thinking some type of thick rubber but that looks like it would work fine. I've seen the ones that mount on the inside of the fender but I wanted one that could be removed easy as I use the bike for moto as well.

Thanks but that Ryco looks more for street riding, the fx will be off-road only and only need a plate to connect trails. Crashes are inevitable so I think something more flexible like pinepig's setup will work better, thanks to all who responded.

Your p.m. isn't working.

go to amazon.com.  Look at 3/16 or 1/4" UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) plastic sheets in 12" x 12" or 12" x 24" and cut to the shape you want to hold the plate.  You can get in white, black or natural.  Use the screws that hold on the rear taillight to attach the UHMW plastic license plate holder to rear fender.  May need to get longer screws.

The UHMW plastic is even tougher than the HDPE plastic they use for fuel tanks.  It will keep its shape better than some of the plastics suggested above, because what inevitably happens is the weight of the plate and the bouncing tend to make the plate fall and if it isnt sticking out the back will be grabbed by the rear tire and folded under.

 

Here is mine with the uhmw plastic:

Go to the picture titled with WR License plate holder

The BeRad frame is slick for supermoto but not for trail use. A mud-caked plate will get you pulled over by DNR or five-O for sure.

Plus it's not illuminated, so don't get caught out after dark, eh?

Does anyone know how to get one of the license plate brackets that are on the Aussie 450F's?

That'd be perfect.
