    Well I plan on adding the led bolts to the plate, but just did not do it yet. Yes it's the law in Oh as well that it has to be lighted. I don't really do much night riding... more back and forth to work... so for now I don't see a problem, heck when and if I do get pulled over the cops got his car right up your ass any way with his lights a blazing so he wouldn't even notice... But I plan on running the lights this weekend when I have more time.

    I see this type of plate mounting on a lot sportbikes around here in Maryland.

    I would caution however, to check and make sure it's ok to NOT light your plate. In Maryland it's the law to have your plate lighted.

    Petty I know, but all it takes is a Trooper with a paper cut and attitude to ruin your ride/day!

    I have a fender eliminator kit up by the taillight and kept the stock lighting (tucked under the fender.

    Well I finally took some time to start adding and removing a few things from my stock Hawk to make it more clean.

    I started by clipping the fender of the plate hanger and relocating the plate on the swing arm and removing the chain guard for the mini Rob Z guard. I am also going to be removing the turn signals, replacing the sub frame with one that has the bungie bars removed and intergrating the signals into the rear tail light.

    I got the eliminator kit from Doug Thompson, which included the bracket for the plate and some lighted plate bolts (not installed yet), divider for the rear tail light and wire harness to convert the tail light.

    Thanks to Doug for the kit! It's starting to look a little sport bike-ish.

    My over all plan is too add a F2 tank and the Duc seat and cowl, rework the fronk forks, 900rr shock mod, stage 3 jet, pods and exhaust... but this will all be over the winter so I can still ride for the rest of this season.
