    License Plate Mount 2006 Yamaha R6

    Didn't like the huge mount for license plate and turn signals for the new R6, but I liked the arm that they mounted on. Most of the fender eliminator kits on the internet do away with the arm and run over $100.00 to $150.00 with turn signals. So Saturday took it all apart went to Cycle Gear and bought turn signals and license plate bracket with turn signal mounts, cost tax and all $38.68. I used the license plate light from the old setup but not sure I like it so may have to buy a different light. Here are some pics see what you think, the first 2 are the factory setup.

    Now all that money I saved can go to replace the mirror on the left side that broke when somehow I pushed it off the kickstand while shining it up after I was done. It went over slow thanks to my arm being caught on the passenger foot peg when it went over, nice scrape on the arm man those little bumbs on the pegs really grab skin nice. It hit a box right on the mirror then I heard the sound of metal poping so it's toast. Yamaha says a new one is about $70.00 and they have to order it. Glad I had the frame sliders on already.

    Oh that is a sickening feeling I know all too well. The tail-light/plate holder assy looks sweet though!

    I went with the amber lenses as they seem to match the bike well.
