Fender Eliminator Kit

My son has a 2007 GSXR600. He was on his way home the other day and the Motorcycle cop pulled him over and gave him a citation for obstructed LP. He told him it was illegal. Just a heads up if your in my hood and have this kit. Be Carefull.

That's about where mine is, angle and all and I've never had a problem with it. I'm usually fairly lucky with police though.

He could have written a warning IMO....He was not speeding, wearing his gear, has his class M and pulled right over. The cop told him the reason they are put there is because people run. I call it BS.OH well we are going back to the traditional FEK




dont roll Pearland and think youll get buy.....

I don't even have a light on my FEK and I haven't had PLand give me any issues about it. One cop mentioned it in passing when pulling me over to make sure the bike was mine (and slightly speeding but he was cool) right after we had several bikes in our immediate area stolen.

Maybe the LEO was just in a bad mood? Or maybe just cause your son's age? Some cops, in all departments, not just PLand, make instant assumptions about young people on sport bikes. Just how it is unfortunately.

tell him to go to court and fight it, if its visible from 50 ft from the rear of the vehicle its good and the cop is an idiot, kinda like a cop saying the turn signal lights have to be 13 inches apart

Well from what I've always heard is, that's clearly illegal from everything I have ever been told about mounting your plate.

However we all do it mine is tucked like that as well and if i get pulled over I'll just tell him I bought the bike like that and look it has a light on it!

and hope for the best.

I think we had a thread about the license plate thing a while back, the law is kinda ambigous, it says it has to be visible from 50ft and has to be on the rear of the vehicle, but it doesn't say it has to be at the fartherst back part, if it did then every wrecker I know of would be illegal so would most semi trucks...

The only Texas law I could find with specific verbiage about plates is with regard to visability and the license plate light, where it states it must be clearly legible from 50 ft from the rear. (Transportation Code Sec. 547.322(f)(2): (1) illuminates the rear license plate; and
(2) makes the plate clearly legible at a distance of 50 ft. from the rear.)
The only other code I found was Transportation Code Sec. 502.409 and this basically refers to obstructing visability of the plates, nothing of which applies in my case.

We run an axle mount plate with the inspection sticker on the SIDE of the bracket on 2 of our Bikes (96SRAD 04 Busa) and 15 minutes after having the GSXR inspected SRAD went to the DPS and asked a Officer if it was legal(it IS lighted) and he said "NO! Where did you get that inspection?" To which SRAD asked for specific PROOF, hmm turns out that there is NO law against WHERE you mount so long as it's visible and lighted. Also the inspection sticker DOES NOT have to be on a "Inspection plate" or even facing rearward the law states NEAR license plate.
On another note you have to realize that the fine for cheating or improperly inspecting can be $$$$$ so Inspectors are not willing to do something that MIGHT cause them some grief. IF they give you some friction ask them to pull out their copy of the inspection rules and show you specifically.

Sec. 502.409. WRONG, FICTITIOUS, ALTERED, OR OBSCURED LICENSE PLATE. (a) A person commits an offense if the person attaches to or displays on a motor vehicle a number plate or registration insignia that:

(1) is assigned to a different motor vehicle;

(2) is assigned to the vehicle under any other motor vehicle law other than by the department;

(3) is assigned for a registration period other than the registration period in effect;

(4) is fictitious;

(5) has blurring or reflective matter that significantly impairs the readability of the name of the state in which the vehicle is registered or the letters or numbers of the license plate number at any time;

(6) has an attached illuminated device or sticker, decal, emblem, or other insignia that is not authorized by law and that interferes with the readability of the letters or numbers of the license plate number or the name of the state in which the vehicle is registered; or

(7) has a coating, covering, protective material, or other apparatus that:

(A) distorts angular visibility or detectability;

(B) alters or obscures one-half or more of the name of the state in which the vehicle is registered; or

(C) alters or obscures the letters or numbers of the license plate number or the color of the plate.

(b) Except as provided by Subsection (f), an offense under Subsection (a) is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than $200, unless it is shown at the trial of the offense that the owner knowingly altered or made illegible the letters, numbers, and other identification marks, in which case the offense is a Class B misdemeanor.

(c) to (e) Repealed by Acts 1997, 75th Leg., ch. 165, Sec. 30.66, eff. Sept. 1, 1997.





Text of subsection as added by Acts 2007, 80th Leg., R.S., Ch. 30, Sec. 1







(c) Subsection (a)(7) may not be construed to apply to:

(1) a trailer hitch installed on a vehicle in a normal or customary manner;

(2) a transponder, as defined by Section 228.057, that is attached to a vehicle in the manner required by the issuing authority;

(3) a wheelchair lift or wheelchair carrier that is attached to a vehicle in a normal or customary manner;

(4) a trailer being towed by a vehicle; or

(5) a bicycle rack that is attached to a vehicle in a normal or customary manner.

so go to court and fight the ticket
