    Number plate angle

    Does the number plate have to be 45 degrees or greater from vertical? Mine is currently 30. It passed pits like that, but I'm trying to avoid getting a fine in the future.
    I know the adr's say upright and visible from 45 either side. Where does upright begin?

    Sorry if this topic has been beaten to death, but I did a search and couldn't find what I was looking for.
    Thanks

    Hmmm. It doesn't stipulate how large the bicycle and bicycle rack needs to be...

    Next probably answered somewhere else question. Can I drill holes in the number plate to mount it? The current ones aren't going to work

    Not that you may be thinking it, but...

    Don't cable tie your plate to the base so that it flaps around in the wind. The police will notice it.

    How do I know this?

    Haha nah it's bolted to a piece of ali flat bar that attaches to the holder at the moment, but I realised today it's pushing the plate too far out from the number plate light so it will be hard to see at night.

    I can just cut another bit of bar or either side bend at 90 and bolt to the sides of the holder, making the plate sit flush and under the light again.

    Should do until I sort something better

    Bad idea of mounting your number plate at 45 degree's on the back of a motorbike.

    When your mono, your number plate becomes vertical and can be seen clearly, which is what you don't want when popping wheelies. Better to mount it inverse 45 degrees, so that it's Horizontal when mono!
