    I have been looking at pricey fender eliminator kits and didn't want to spend the money. So I just took the lower fender and the license plate light off and made a simple bracket that i bolted through two of the existing mounting holes of the license plate light.
    I think it looks pretty good and the best part is it was free and I didn't cut into anything so I can easily put it back into the original form.
    Right now I don't have a license plate light but I don't plan on riding the bike much in the dark, and I also don't think Georgia cops really care. I am also debating drilling a small hole into the bottom of the tail light housing and covering it with transparent plastic. That would illuminate the license plate from the tail light bulb.

    That looks ok, but I would worry that the plate is going to get taco'd or bent up. But then again...it is a dirt bike.
    FWIW, I am cheap (kindred spirits?)- I bought a fender eliminator off amazon that was fine quality and pretty cheap- I want to say 20 bucks or so, but I would have to check.
    I do not recommend drilling a hole in your tail light- first- it is easy to crack that plastic because it is brittle and second because it will be a good way to get moisture in there and degrade the electrics.
