license plate light?

Okay let me start off saying I know most riders dont use them after eliminating the rear fender. I have a class A CDL and prefer not to take the chance on a ticket. The odds are low on that ever happening. So with that in mind has any one used or seen these before?

Thanks in advance for any help given.

Today is a good day TATOR!!!

Nope. I did pick up a low-cost solution but never installed it on the bike. Its going on my trailer plate instead. I tend not to ride at night anyway.

I have heard good things about these

LED License Plate Frame

When my current setup fails me, mine normally lasts a year, I'll get one of those.

Here's what I have to solve the problem.
I got one of those little $20 6inch neon tubes you see all the little high school guys with inside their cars. They plug into the cigarette lighter rihgt. I cut the plug off and wired it into my old connector for the license plate light, I then brought the unit out from one of the old holes where the "mud flap" used to be, and attached it to the license plate with some clips and L brackets. I wrapped the brackets and clips in Black electrical tape, just to kinda clean it up a little, but it doesn't look to bad. Its rather nice. The light needs to be sealed up onthe ends. Again some electrical tape works nice. And their ya go, a $20 light that will illuminate your plate and its VERY bright, and it looks clean.

Those LED bolts aren't as bright as they make them out to be, and the parts guy at my shop showed me. So, just my thoughts.

I have those on my YZF. I failed a safety inspection, and had been cautioned by a trooper, so I run those on the top of the plate, and red button reflectors on the bottom, because a trooper had shown me in writting where it says you have to have a passive red reflector.
