    Reflective red spot

    Hi guys/gals just wondered if any of you have either faricated or bought a reflector to fit rear no. Plate rather than just remove it after m.o.t?
    Obviously it spoils the looks of my bike��

    I've used the self adhesive round ones in the past. They look ok and you can always dump them after the MOT. I did read recently about someone who's bike failed the MOT as the reflector wasnt central on the number plate. So probably worth sticking one at the bottom of your plate. You can also get rectangular ones which fit better. One that looks like an Italian flag (green/white/red) look ok

    search on ebay for Italian reflector.

    Yes new law states central reflector

    So the past few years where the mot tester has sold you a small stuck on reflector and put to the edge of the no. Plate it will now fail.
