Re: Trunk Lock

I've seen people drill a hole in their plate. I used a hinge for my 929 plate though.

Re: Trunk Lock

I put my plate on by attaching the plate to a small piece of plastic left over from hacking the fender, put a spring loaded cabinet hinge on this piece of plastic, then attached it to the chopped tail. The license plate is all the way up by the taillight, and I swing it down (since it's hinged) when I want to access the keyhole.

Re: Trunk Lock

On the Triumph ST's, if you install factory hard bags, (which I did) to unlock the seat you had to remove the left bag to access the lock (which I used to do). One of the popular mods is listed here ... Seat Lock Mod ... and, (well, you get the idea).

So Bhudda, if you've already cut the hole, I guess it's too late, but for anybody else, this may be interesting.

This link will bring you to the home page. Click on the "Mods" button, then find the seat lock link.

Re: Trunk Lock

You can drill a hole in the plate just big enough for the key to fit through. It will be very hard to see!

That's what I did. The key shank is only about 3/8" wide so you don't need a very big hole. Make a small hole hole first and finish it off with a reemer to get a nice smooth hole but only make it just big enough to get the key in. Then position the plate with the key in the lock and mark the mounting holes in the fender. Looks great. I can get you pictures, if you want.

I did the same,just make sure it's wide enough so when you turn the key it will open the lock.

You're in the right place! Drilling the license plate works, too, but is it legal? If I get pulled over I don't want to give them anything else to look at. I like my hinge thingy....puts it up in the same place with no holes in the license plate. Just a personal opinion!

Re: Trunk Lock

I drilled my plate years ago and have been pulled over several times with no tickets.

Been here just a few days. Started looking for info on Grattan (a sweet track close to my home) and led me to this.

Also, kinda peaceful here without that gory yellow font.

OK Hondagal. I'll tell her that came from a lady on the Board. I'm sure that the fact it's a woman's opinion will change her mind.
