Please HELP!! Need advice on license plate location.

I just installed my new undertail on the R6. Now I need to place the license plate somewhere. If this photo goes through this particullar R6 is exactly like my R6, except for the logos on the rear sides. I would appreciate everybodys opinion on where to mount the plate.

My plate is mounted in front of the rear wheel @ the same place the rear fender is attached. I drilled two small holes in the fender, attached the plate, the reattached the fender to the cross piece on the swing arm. I've been pulled over twice & haven't had the police say anything about the plate. I've the same bike as in the picture.

Try mounting it to your exhaust pipe. I fabricated a bracket for my zx9-r and mounted an led light above the plate to make it legal.

Does your plate scrape the tire hugger at all? I am trying to figure a way to mount it like you did, I just need to come up with a way to light it up! I all ready have a blue neon strip but I do not want any blue neon under my bike. Do you know if there is a light strip of any kind for license plates for this purpose?

No, it's attached to the hugger. I'll try to attach a pic

here's another pic that may be better.
Sorry if they don't come out to well, I'm in the middle of a 520 chain/sprocket conversion and there's not much room in the garage to take the pic.

I am going to go down to radio shack and see what kind of lighting they might have for lighting the plate in the location you put yours; then I am going to go place mine in the same place. If it turns out good I'll post pictures. It looks so F***ing awsome right now I don't want to drill any holes in the undertail anywhere! Especially, after all the time it took to prep it and paint it. Thanks for the photos!!

Yep it's a darker red than the bike. Micron. I love the sound.
