pic of rear fender w/low profile rear tail light?

15 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a picture of their fender with the low profile brake/tail light? I am wondering how the license plate will bolt on.

Will it be viewable ? will cops hassle me? It looks as if the lic plate will be slanted too much.

Help!

No hassles from police. The stock fender (and mine from Maier) provides enough angle to bolt the plate directly on. Have a look:

Both the light and the rubber plate gasket came from 4strokes only, although people have had varied success receiving things in a timely manner from them (him).

Hope this helps. -T.

I have some pics in my garage, its from "4 strokes Only" and works bitchen, I also ordered the rubber to mount the plate to the fender so it doesnt rattle and come loose..since it was cheap.

Here's some "help." This Maier small XR-style brake/ tail light set up on my '98 XRL is not DOT approved but it is very bright for how small it is. I've never been stopped nor even had a much more than a second look from the cops with this one.

Made my own license plate back plate out of some scrap FRP off a job-site attaching it with bolts through rubber grommets. Very solid & the plate stays in tact even when beating the crap out of it off-road.

I've seen much less "DOT legal" light combos on lots of street rockets & other choppers...

Just rivet the plate onto the fender below the light. You've got the plate, so if it's visible then the cops shouldn't give you grief.

fender here's a pic of my L with a crf450 rear fender during mock-up.

another shot

I used the Baja Designs rear LED brake/tail/plate light combo...and what a waste of cash!

Ironically broke...

In Baja...

After a 225 mile ride! (That’s a total of 700 off-road miles with that Baja Designs light)

After doing some research, I noticed that many other guys have the same problem...the brake light goes out, and all that works is the tail/plate light.

Looks cool, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
