Yes, you'd think a guy named MrBracket could make a bracket......

Well, as a matter of fact I can!!!

It's a bracket that mounts under the fender to the subframe in the same holes the original license plate holder mounts. The boys over at ProCycle came thru for me again, they hooked me up with a slick little LED tail light that also has a license plate light built into it. I just made a modified version of the ProCycle license plate mount that bent up instead of down and added the light mount.

Here is the ProCycle mounting bracket, which raises the plate a few inches over stock.

Here is the same view with the one I made today.

Again the ProCycle one:

And, the new one I made today. The LED is SUPER BRIGHT! The tail light alone is a huge improvment!

As you can see, the new plate/tail light mount doesn't sit any higher than even the low profile DR250 tail light yet it raises the license plate another few inches over the ProCycle version. Personally I like the look of the ProCycle kit but if you need the extra height, this should work pretty well. I will make a cap off plate for the hole in the rear fender that has a gromet in it for the wiring to pass through. I will also put a trailer light plug in the wiring harness so it's plug and play for adding trailer lights.
