Takes some doin', I've read, but--I think a 650 shock implant is possible.

My rear tire eats up my license plate regularly, even with a fully-functional rear shock!

Thus, I think, as the dealerships sometimes say, "That's NORMAL! They ALL do that!"

I first thought mischevious vandals were bending the plate while the bike was parked in my parking lot; straightened that sucker out.

Went on an off-road ride, and, would you belive it? Those pesky rascals FOLLOWED me, out in the boonies, and mangled the license plate again, just as they did before!

The cure is: License plate relocation, regardless of rear shock condition, I fear.
