My friend and I have come up with an idea for a custom bracket for Kuryakyn side license plates. http://www.kuryakyn.com

We don’t have a price yet on the bracket, but the idea is to keep it affordable so that you can spend your money on a nice side license plate. We will sell the brackets on Ebay once we finalize everything.

The side license plate I picket only cost $100.00 dollars. I have not yet wired the LED for the license plate light. When I do I will post pics and how-to-instructions. For now I will post pics of the side license plate bracket attached to my Raider. I will keep you updated once we complete this project.

The fun part is going to make the wiring just as nice and clean. I have an idea but I have not started that part yet. Soon…Soon.

My dealership put something similar on my Raider before I drove it home. It's actually mounted using the bolts on both the upper and lower belt guards. It's positioned lower and also has a light. They did a really good job. I'll try to get pics here sometine over the long weekend.

It looks great but I bet you it won't last long. That tab on the swing arm is just not made for all that weight. I remember on the warrior site some guys did this and lost their plate because of the tab breaking off.
I hope it doesn't but I sure wouldn't trust it!

There is next to no weight on the license plate and the bracket is aluminum. There is plenty of material on the tab that the plate is mounted to. If this tab brakes than Yamaha needs to rethink their quality. Also the Warrior’s swing arm is not the same as the Raider’s. We are comparing apples to oranges. But thanks for the info I will look into it.

What is the link to the Warrior site that refers to this issue?

OK... not the best picture... not my camera. As promised, here's a pic of what the dealer put on before I drove it home. It attaches at both the upper and lower belt guards... with spacers.

Nope.. It's on there... it's the chrome slip-on.

Sure enough it was so shiny it just looked like grass from the reflection. Very very nice!

Have you ever scraped the plate during turns? I like to lean the bike and scrape the pegs all the time through turns. Now that I have it mounted to the bike I think it would look much better mounted on the lower guard.

I haven't had an issue with scraping. I think if you put yours on the lower belt guard... you would have issues. Mine is attached at the upper/lower guards at the edges of the frame. I think because yours is attached at the mid point... if you put it on the bottom guard it would be too low and it would scrape.
