    The day after it was delivered, as you can see there is still snow around. AqRK8sICMAAkSFW.jpg

    As you can see from all of my pictures before now, the front L plate is on the outside of the screen, and the shop (P & H) stuck it down with this black double sided sticky strip, which i had to remove with a hair dryer otherwise it wouldn't budge. But now i just whacked a hard L plate on the inside which in my opinion looks better and the corners obviously won't peel up in the head on wind.

    The picture is slightly dark as i had only just fully cleaned and polished my bike in my garage as it was raining so the lighting isn't great.

    I had a plastic L plate like that too, took it out to clean the screen one day and it never went back in, i know i should put it back in really but i get so much more respect on the roads when thats not the first thing people see and i've seen countless police with none of them batting an eye lid (plus it looks that little bit more gorgeous :p )

    That's pretty good until you come across a jobsworth... and even then you can get 3 points :/ unless you have a back up excuse prepared for eg having an already broken (purposely broken) L plate in your bag and then you can say it has only just come off :)

    Just received in the post the yamahar125.com sticker :) would of put it vertically on the screen down the side but the L plate would of made it less visible due to the whites. So i put it horizontally :) i like it. Aqwnpb2CQAEVFR5.jpg

    No, just press firmly over each letter then slowly take the clear bit off :)
