Best location to hook up your license plate without blocking the rear signals

I've received 2 warnings from the highway police officers already due to other drivers not seeing my rear turn signals clearly when I use them. Anyone else has this problem on their 954rr?

Oh sorry, yeah it's pretty much the stock set up with the integrated signals under the tail seat and so is the license plate bracket.
Would be best if dmv issues smaller size license plates, I say about 4x3 inches is fine.

As NWB said, what set up have you got to hide your turn signals so much ??

Any pics

Do, or do not, there is no try !

With out seeing a pic I would suggest moving the plate forward to were the signals are behind it.

while I understand the plate and turn signals/reflectors on our streetbikes can look kinda crappy....you have to keep in mind that the plate and the signals need to be seen by police and more importantly the other drivers on the road.

I have seen some nice integrated turnsignals for some bikes, but when in use on the road (especially at night) you could hardly see them. I guess you have to decide what is more important....looking cool as you get a ticket/hit by a car or not looking as cool with less hassle from the police and a better chance to be seen by drivers. Just remember...you can't see the plate or the stock lights/reflectors when you are riding anyway.

Also the more issues with custom plate mounting and turn signals will only lead to stricter laws for bikes down the line.

Good luck...I how you find a good looking solution that takes away police hassle and still offers good visibility.

here is something for the front signals that offer a clean look and put the lights up and out for better visibility. Motorcycle Indicator Bar Ends :: OBERON Performance Motorcycle Parts & Accessories
