On the M800, the number plate bracket bolts to the black plastic moulding which sits below the LED light cluster, has the indicators hanging off it etc...

From October 15, 2011" border="0" />

Last year had an MOT 'near miss'.... the black plastic had snapped along the crease - almost right through. Helpful MOT man did a cable tie fix & warned to mend it properly before next MOT.

Much to my frustration, after a blast round yesterday, bracket had almost come right off, leaving me no choise but to chop it off, before it fell off completely. Dread to think how much Suzuki want for a new bracket... and looks quite involved to fit. Tried some supposed plastic weld stuff I've bought at an autojumble.... didnt touch it. Hmmmmmmm. Anyone got any inspiration?

I think half the problem is those monster UK number plates. They need a separate numbering system for bikes so they can make the plates smaller. I guess they want to be sure of catching your number plate on the camera but in the US the cameras seem to be able to read the smaller plates.

I agree a tail tidy would be the way to go, they show the rear wheel a bit more which is better unless you fancy I side mounted plate

I had forgotten about this excellent mod, much better idea especially when the cost is zero and it looks so good.
