Need inspection sticker help

Afternoon MH Family ,
I am going to get my bike inspected so I can get my plates tomorrow and need to know of a place that will not be so about bikes passing inspections. I read a DPS book and it said that you have to have red reflectors in the back of your bike. Last time I had red reflectors on my bike, it was a Mongoose. I have a few aftermarket parts on my bike, and I want it to be a breeze. Holla back!

there is a cool old man up here on the way to 149 that does inspections. He'll check to see if the horn works, brake lights, and that's it. It sucks to spend the time and money making your bike legal for state inspection only to find out the tech doesn't inspect !!!

Haven't had a reflector on mine in years, never had a problem with inspections and I've gone to several places. Usually just whenever I happen to remember it.

I know of a place ive gotten my stickers for ever on my bikes and cars and trucks.. cars and trucks have seemed to get a bit harder bacause of the emissions and what not but still they havent ever gave me anyproblem exspecaily on my bikes they just run through the stuff rather quick,as long as you have colored lights with your clear lenzes and they work properly with the hand and foot leavers and the high and low beam on the headlight and your horn thats about it oh yah and the tires arnt too bald they look unsafe thats about it ive had clear lenzes on alot of my cars and bikes never a word..its 12.50 for bikes i just bought a bike out of florida and had to have another form from then for texas for the bike to be inspected bacause it was an out of state bike...They have always gave me stickers with no problems..The place is Moble gas station in LaMarque Texas right off of HWY-3 south towards Galveston..Hwy-3 runs parallel with I45 south

Pumpin306 i would sugest that you would remove the rear as well no blinkers are better then 1/2 of the blinkers. i think the law states if the Veh was desighned that way then your suppose to have them and fully functional ,onther words if it was sold new with 2 blinkers then your suppose to have 2 of them and if was made with 4 of them then you need 4 and so on..,but it also states blinkers are not required in the state of texas hand signals are OK..If was me then i would try to make the bike look like it never came with those blinkers if all you have the rear ones and not the front ones and the bike came with front and rear most likely the guy doing the inspection wouldnt never know it didnt come with any.. hope i helped

I have gotten all 3 of my bikes at place in South Shore Harbour. Never had a problem until I went and had the RR done. This young punk acted like he didn't want to give me one, because I did have that plate under my licence plate to put it on! I had to find the old guy who has always done them for me. He put it right on the swing arm no problem. None of my other bikes had that plate thing either. Oh well!
