Tired Of Ridin Dirty....

Ok guys well Im pretty legit rider and hate being considered one of the punks that is a burden on the road.. I have let my inspection expire about 2 months ago. I have been toying with the idea of putting everything back to legal but it would cost about 100 bucks to do it... so ill tell you guys whats wrong and maybe you guys can tell me a guy that will let me slide by or turn his head....

I have an hid conversion it has one beam... plenty bright but in texas you have to have a high and a low beam mine does not...

my lisense plate is in the rear but its mounted off the swingarm and doesnt have a lamp or a tab to mount the sticker on.. right now the current sticker is on the swing arm.. previous owner did it I did not

thats basically it but the mr sticker by my house wont turn his head and slap it on... please help playas... pm me or post on here

why not just switch out the HID kit to get the inspection....get a cheap plate to stick the sticker on and then run an LED to shine on the plate

I have insurance and a license... you know its hard to want to do all this work for a 12 dollar sticker.. if a cop is going to pull me over I guess im thinking it would be for something more than a sticker.. and its mounted illegally on the swingarm now...I dont know im just looking for a guy who knows a guy that can help

you gotta see it from an outside perspective, anyone that knows someone that is willing to do that, shouldnt give out his/her infor to some one they dont know.


So that being said, I dont know anything other then to tell you other then see if you can borrow a spare headlight connection, and see if any one can help with a way to rig up your bracket and light

Don't worry about it until you do your registration. It's only a $10 ticket, then you have 10 days to get it done. It's not a big deal.

I have that same set up plate on the swingarm. But I made a plate for my inspection. I think you seen it. Well I went to the Mr sticker and he gave it to me for a extra $20. You have to know how to talk to them, or they think there boss is tasting them.


I added a pic of my inspection sticker plate i made.
