I relocated my rear tag today & took a few pics for your viewing pleasure.


Relocated tag with LED lighting

Relocated tag side view

Stock assembly

Getting ready to cut, no backing out now. Note that I removed the back metal plate while trimming the plastic

Reflector base needs to be removed.

All the cuts completed except for the 2 tabs at the bottom. I trimmed them back about 1/4" because they were pushing on the bottom/backside of the plate. Reinstalled metal back plate then used a 19/64 drill bit for the mounting holes.

Trimmed down the factory tag bracket. *Update* If your state requires side reflectors you may what to skip this step.

Cut down factory bracket install.

LED to factory wiring. After soldering/heat shrinking the wires I recovered the wiring with the factory loom.

Finished assembly

I added a grommet for the LED wiring to pass thru.

Had to notch the tag so the LED wiring would clear. I added a grommet to the notch in the tag.

The LEDs light the plate just right for my taste & keeps it legal. Cost less than $30.

It looks good, but if you want to 'keep it legal' you need to re-attach the red reflectors on the sides.
This probably varies from state to state but this is what is listed in the Oregon motorcycle handbook for 2011

Required Motorcycle Equipment
All motorcycles and mopeds must have:
• At least one but not more than three, white headlights. Modulating headlights
are allowed during daylight hours. Oregon law requires that the headlight be
on at all times.
• At least one red taillight.
• One white license plate light.
• At least one red brake light.
• Amber turn signal lights if the motorcycle was built after 1972.
• A red reflector on the rear.
• At least one rear view mirror.
• One horn.
• Fenders on all wheels.
• At least one brake operated by hand or foot.
• An exhaust system in good working order and in constant operation (or, in
the case of mopeds, when the engine is running), which prevents the vehicle
from discharging any visible emissions and keeps exhaust noise levels at or
below standards set by the Department of Environmental Quality.
• All lighting must be DOT compliant.

What tools did you use to cut the plastic? looks like a really clean job.
Dremel for cutting then used a sander with 600 paper for a more finished look.

Very nice!! Where did you get the LED?
Amazon or Ebay. The LEDS are awesome. I really like the look at night.
