Inspection Sticker Placement?

Just getting back on a bike after 5 years and just wanted to be sure I'm putting my sticker in a good location. I understand that it is supposed to be toward the most rear of the bike. However, I have a nice fender eliminator so my tail section is very clean looking (2007 R1). The fender eliminator is tucked forward, near the shock and doesn't have a spot for the inspection sticker. The last thing I need is a ticket for bad sticker location.

1. Where is your sticker?
2. Any issues from the Po-Po?
3. Post pics of course (be sure to obscure your license plate for your protections)

Below is a pic of where my fender eliminator is located.

If the officer is looking to be a just put it on the plate. Most are cool with it anywhere from swing arm to the tail of the bike.

Nice r1.... mine is stuck to the back of the plate. Fender eliminator is up by the stock plate location near the end of the tail.

Stuck to the back of the plate with a holder or actually stuck (out of sight) behind the plate?

My plate is right where yours is. I have my inspection sticker just below the LP and have never been hassled at all. Had several officers mention they didn't like the location of the plate itself though.

I've got mine on the standard plate hanging under the license plate. I've removed all the stock garbage there, but relocated the plate a bit higher... still back on the bike.

I'll sacrifice a little bit of cosmetics for a little less grief from the po-po.

Here's a link that gives you an idea of why: http://forums.officer.com/showthread...ting&p=1336582

I wouldn't be worried about where the inspection is at considering you are just going to get a ticket for where the plate is located.

swing arm, back of license plate, under license plate, ive run these and never had a officer even ask about it. as long as it is positively attached to the bike, i think youre fine. ive seen people put them on the upper fork tubes, frame neck, etc.

the dealer license plate border had a space for it to sit centered under the plate facing back just like the plate did. i took off the border and cut it across left to right just above the lower bolt holes and put it on the back of the plate through the upper bolt holes on the plate. if you look at the back of my plate you can see my sticker looking right at you, but its not stuck right to the plate......thats alot of plates

I have mine on the swing arm too. I got pulled over once and the deputy told me that some cops can be real dicks about that if they want to. But he told me he has his on the same spot on his bike and he was hassled by a DPS about it.
