Repositioned my number plate today after reading other posts.. Removed the number plate bracket and moved the plate down between the indicators. Two small holes were left where I removed the bracket. I covered this with a reflector.. Wired in a small number plate light and it all looks tidier.
I was also in two minds about using a tyre pen to highlight some lettering on the tyres. I think it looks quite good. I know a few others were thinking about it so you can see what you think. Couple of pictures attached.

That looks so much better there, I will do this modification myself. I can see the new plate light would not be to difficult to put in but what about the old white light area. Could some red tail light repair tape be cut and placed there to cover that area?

Here is a link to what I mean

Ken, I have had the exact same thought about the tape. The whole mod cost less than a tenner and looks a lot better..
Thanks for the positive comments guys

Good idea matey, or you could leave the white light facing up an risk aeroplanes thinking you are the first white light marker at the start of the runway they are looking for  hyst

Good mod Ricky,another mod for you now is to get the chrome indicator bulbs to replace the orange ones,they flash orange and would set the bike off better.(only my opinion)

Plate looks so much better underneath rather than acting as a wind 'chute.  Reflector to cover the existing holes is inspired - I just used a couple of stainless dome heads when I did that to mine      Good job sir
