This license plate holder replaces the rather ugly looking original plate holder with reflectors. Though the reflectors were placed there to meet DOT standards and do arguably offer some level of passive safety, the appearance is not to everyone's liking. You could saw the reflectors off of your existing bracket but it's a hassle, especially to do a clean job. This part simply replaces the original and it is a clean, straight forward part that does one thing: attaches your license plate to your bike. Black powder coated steel.
This part is also what we recommend when installing our rear fender extenders and also any of our Legere plate holders. Perfect for custom applications too!
Please Note: The holes for mounting this part to the bike are 70mm (2-3/4") on center. This will match the original holes of nearly all BMWs however on certain models, it may be necessary to drill holes or elongate the existing holes to attach this part. If you would prefer not to make any such modifications to your bike, you may want to measure the spacing of the mounting bolts on your bike before ordering. This can usually be done underneath the rear fender without disassembling anything.
We also offer some very cool license plate mounting hardware. Check it out under the Related Products.
