I just installed my license plate relocator, and now comtemplating on throwing away the old (and super heavy) mud guard and the metal license plate holder. Please share your thoughts on why I may want to keep them around.

I heard that NJ state requires reflectors on/next to the plate -- and I have little round reflector bolts that the dealer gave me.
Is that sufficient? Has anyone experience any problems with their law enforcement on their license plate relocator?

Here is the pic of the one that I bought from Ebay:
(Nice way to lose 3 lbs)

I've kept all the stock stuff I've taken off and shoved it in a box. If I ever decide to sell the monster, I can
a) Use it to sweeten the deal since not every buyer may like what I've done
b) Put all the stock stuff back on and sell the aftermarket stuff
c) Sell the bike as is, and then sell all the stock stuff.

Having all the original stuff seems to help out when selling,

Hey Stik,
I was curious which plate relocator kit you used and if you had pictures... I've been tossing around ideas about what to do with the tail of my 2000 900...
Thanks

I bought this one which apparently fits 2002 and up:

I thought it was made of metal plate when I ordered it, but I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it is plastic.

If you are looking for a tail chop, others here may have more ideas ...

keep your old parts.

especially if you live in an apartment, so you can store them in the living room.

teh ladiez: "what's that [insert random crap] over there?"
you: "oh, i ride a motorcycle.
teh ladiez: "wow. that's so dangerous, rebellious, and awesome!"
you: "yeah, i know, baby. so, wanna do something tomorrow? you know, just you and me?"
;D
