It is pretty easy to see why most of us like to install a fender elim kit, or a tail tidy, as the stock one is huge and hideous. I personally did not want to spend $100+ on a kit, and I definitely didn't want to lose my factory turn signals. I also wanted something that I could easily return to stock, if ever need be, and I didn't like the look of the plate hanging from the rear fender over the tire. I have designed a bracket which relocates the license plate to in front of the rear tire, and uses factory hardware to attach it to the subframe. As far as I am aware, all Scramblers have the 2 bolts I utilize to attach the bracket to. It also uses the factory license plate light, and hardware, so it looks OEM. The hardest part of the install is removing the factory stuff, and re-routing the plate light wire.
A couple quick notes, as of right now, I have only designed the bracket for US plates. I could easily design a new bracket for other countries plates, but I do not have one on hand and would need measurements. Anyone that is willing to help me out here, PM me and we will work something out. Also, the plate is offset from the angle of the subframe by 10 degrees. If the general consensus is that this is not enough angle for clear viewing, I can up this to 15 or 20 degrees. The only items you would need to install this are hex keys, and then 2 bolts (and subsequent nuts) to attach the plate to the actual bracket. The bracket pictured is PLA material. ABS will be $5 more, with an option for acetone smoothing to make it look super slick. For now though, only PLA. Bracket weighs ~ 40 grams.
Price is $25 + shipping.
Basic bracket, PLA.
Backside of bracket. Note the recessed portions which accept a nut, this makes it much easier to attach the plate.
Angle of the bracket. Offset 10 degrees.
Light and plate attached.
Attached to the bike using factory bolts.
Roughly 2 feet off the ground, and around 1-2 feet behind the bike.
Roughly 5 feet off the ground, and around 8-10 feet behind the bike. This is the angle at which most vehicles would see the plate.
