Got bored today and decided to hack my license plate holder and the final product didn't end up too bad. Got myself a home-made eliminator kit. Now I feel as if I wasted $40.00 for the real thing.

Anyway, here are some pictures:

Just wondering...why you have the "TM" superscript after every thread you create? Just curious...:confused:

Nice mod! I was gonna try that but knowing me I would've just jacked it up somehow so I went for the Evo kit. EXCELLENT workmanship...

The only reason its there is so that when I look back at threads I made, I can easily spot them. Other than that, no particular reason. :)

Cut your tail off. Its really quite simple and its impossible to mess up. :)

You know that you can re-arrange the threads by the "Thread Starter" column, right? :happy:

Yes, I know but I used to do the "™" when vBulletin wasn't the bulletin boad of choice and it was still UBB. I guess its a habit but it should be too difficult to kick.

Sorry if its irritating. Just say stop and I'll comply. It's not a problem. :)

That shouldn't be too difficult. Just make one with small folding hinges so that when the bike's running, the wind blows it up towards the bake light. WHen stationary, it just falls into place. :)

Tool - No worries man. Jus messin' witcha. :D

What'd you use to cut it? That's a pretty clean cut. Also, is that the OEM undertray? Mine doesn't have "Aprilia" or the texture that you have.

Crono,

Look at the fold up plate I put on my RZ500 (plate reads YAMAMA).
http://www.rzrob.com
I used a hinge and a kickstand type spring logic to keep the plate out or up depending on my needs.

I used a power doorlock solonoid with simple linkage to drive it. Nice thing weas I was able to control it through a rocker switch that fit in the spot where the electric start button would go if the bike came with one (RZ stock uses common controls from an FZ).

Very clean install. Nice thing is, you can use cables to hide the solonoid whereever you can fit it.

No worries either... I used a metal saw and just sanded it down so it look original. A little bit tedious but I had my driver do all the hard work. :)

And yes, its the original undertray. I got the bike like that. Is your bike a Factory as well? :)

not taking anything away from you but I did that within 2 hours of taking mine out of the crate.Im suprised anyone would buy the eliminator kit.with a little labor it looks far better.

Tool - You must be a real rookie at this forum stuff. :happy: If you look at my avatar, my stats are all there. Anyway, yes, I do have a Factory and it's in the fastest color...silver. ;)
