PM Snaggletooth.

Yeah I saw his holder. Unfortunately it's one of a kind. He should make more of them and sell them!

XRMARTY, GOOOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!

Here is the ebay link if you want to check it out.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=300318412813

All I can say is that it works realy well for me. The ad states that "I have well over 1,000+ hard off road miles with it." After futher thought, I know I have may more plated off road miles than that. I plan to add some more miles late this evening.

It is a super strong no frills mount that doesn't have a place for turn signals. It keeps the mount super light. I like my mini scoop LED signals mounted on the fender. They are idestructable! I don't do super cross jumps (to old and scared) but sometimes I do jump hard enough bottom the suspention out and I have never damaged the plate or mount. This mount makes the plate look like it's just floating behing the tail light.

There many designs out there even some that are home made. Just get something that won't put that golden plate in harms way. My XR650R ate my plate many times and I even lost my WR's plate (friend found it for me) before I went to this mount. Check them all out and see what works best for you.

PS,

I made Don (designer of the mount) agree to discount them to TT'ers for thirty days here on TT but the add has run out. S/T

From the eBay ad - If you want a license plate mount for your 2007-09 WR that will maintain the factory tail/brake light, has a clean look, doesn’t require you to drill into your (standard US motorcycle) license plate or fender, and was designed to meet the rigors of hard off road ridding, look no further!

I'm a happy users of SnaggleTooths plate as well... however, he probably should add that you do in fact need to drill the bottom plate of your taillight. Not a big deal, but it is worth mentioning.

Regalman,

I'm glad it's working for you. Your right it is worh mentioning. The way I wrote the ad is as follows. "It simply mounts directly to the tail light housing cover using four small stainless steel machine screws and lock nuts. ." I guess I could have been a little more descriptive. I hope it's not missleading.

In the instructions I wrote,

1. Mount your license plate to the mount using the supplied stainless steel machine screws and lock nuts.

2. Align the mount to the underside of the tail/brake light cover. Ensure that the cutout(s) in the mount allow access to the three factory screw that secure the tail/brake light and cover to the fender. It is also a good idea to ensure that the license plate is properly aligned below the tail/brake light. The top of the license plate should be close to the bottom of the tail/brake light and look squared off at the rear fender. Mark this position on the tail/brake light cover through the four screw holes in the mount. For a perfect fit hold the mount in its proper location and have another person confirm that the license plate looks squared off of the fender.

3. Remove the tail/brake light cover by unscrewing the three factory screws that secure it to the fender.

4. Drill the four mounting holes into the tail/brake light cover at the markings using a drill bit that comes close to the size of the hole. * Note: If for what ever reason you chose to remove the license plate mount, simply cover the holes with black silicone (RTV) and your tail/brake light cover will be as good as new.

5. Align the four holes in the tail/brake light cover with the four holes in the mount. Secure the mount to the tail/brake light cover with the supplied stainless steel machine screws and lock nuts. * Note: ensure that the lock nuts are on the inside of the tail/brake light cover.

6. Re-mount the tail/brake light cover (with attached license plate mount) utilizing the three factory screws. *Note: Be careful not to over tighten the three factory screws that secure the tail/brake light to the fender. If you strip the threads an over sized screw may be used.

Congrats xrmarty.

I don't think the thread was worthy of bad gas. Got something to say? We're all adults here just shoot a PM or something.

BTW snaggletooth are you planning on making anymore plate holders? Thats a clean set up :thumbsup:

Complain about the bad gas to a mod or Bryan. It was not justified at all. period.

I hope you get to keep the plate. Best of luck. :thumbsup:

I just left you some GOOD gas... :lol:

Dont worry about the bad gas...

By the way, if you bike is plated in CA, probably not the best idea to post is on the forums...it sends mixed signals about the law. :thumbsup:

The law IS the mixed signal.... good for EVERYONE that has a plated WR and you live in left coast flower sniffin' state like I do.... As long as people can continue to go into retail establishments and come out with a "mini chopper" or "mini crotch rocket" that has a plate on it... I will continue to abuse every f***ing loop hole the state of WA presents...:lol:

Just my .02 cents.

I'm sure the bad gas giver is a KTM owner anyway:p
