Cutting the plastic is no big deal, you just have to find a spot that looks good..

Here is mine, nothing but a simple piece of scrap aluminum. The taillight is already designed to light the plate.

MVC2D015S

If you would like some help, let me know. Have all sorts of various cutting tools and scrap aluminum.

On a sportbike, they don't need a reason to hassle you. Give them a reason, and it's open season.

I had the swingarm mount. I had many looks, and some questions as to where is your plate (45 degree angle on the right side and you couldn't even tell it was there). Never hassled, but I went back to the tail section mounted plate.

I have DEI light n' bolts. Bought them from cyclegear for 19.95 on sale. They work great. Have had no problems thuse far. It doesn't matter which bulb you buy, or not in Mikes case. Just that you have one back there to light the plate. It's very easy to fabricate something.

I'm with texlurch, why give them any more reason to pull you over other than you're riding a sportbike.

I used this plate bracket.

It isn't quite as small as I'd like (partly because of my huge inspection sticker hanging from the bottom) but it had a light and was really easy to install. Not to mention I'm too lazy to make my own. Actually I took my bike to work so I'll hop out to the parking lot and snap a pic so you can see it.
