I'll try and get a few pics taken soon and posted up, would be good to know if it would fit your TE.

Now that you've gone this far, how about making a model that flips the plate over, a la James Bond or Transporter...

say, if one were to inadvertently pass through a speed camera, photo trap, etc....

perhaps with a small servo so it could be controlled from the handlebar.

After a long 2 day wait my Twist-A-Plate arrived in the mail. After re reading the extremely complete illustrated installation instructions I headed out to the shop. It took me longer to get the necessary tools and drill out than to mount everything. Fantastic idea, well made and complete with everything needed to install. Now all I have to do is remember to twist (the plate) when I get to the end of the pavement. Thanks for a well thought out and well made product! Everyone who rides off road should have one.

Here's a photo showing the back side of the Twist-A-Plate along with dimensions. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks

Mine showed up today. It's on the bike now. First impression was pretty good. It went on in a couple of minutes without needing any directions, although I did later read the directions and they were thorough and well though out. My install was probably a little quicker than most, as I had already drilled out the center hole for my existing plate mount. Will give it a work out tomorrow and will reply with the results.

Texas requires space for a separate inspection sticker. Looks like there might be room for it above the plate when it is rotated to the horizontal position. Do you think that location would interfere with the rotation to the vertical position? The sticker is 3" wide, 2" high.

You should have no problem with mounting the sticker between the plates...although it will probably get worn quickly by the plates sliding on each other when you open/close it.

I'm thinking about one of these for my Berg in Texas. Wonder if it might be possible to put the inspection sticker in this spot and then cover it with some sort of clear tape to minimize wear.

I mounted the Twist-A-Plate up last week and went out and put 100 miles on the bike in a 12 hour race. I was able to crash test it a couple of times in the offroad road position. It held up great

I just installed my Twist-a-plate.

It came super quickly after I ordered.

I already had a test unit that I built myself. There were some things I needed to finish up and fine tune. I made it out of aluminum, but was going to do a final in stainless.
But since I knew it was going to take me quite awhile to get time to do mine, I though I'd just buy this one.

My first thought in the pictures was it may not be very sturdy.
After getting it, the unit was way better than I thought. It appears quite sturdy and I think will hold up really well.
The whole thing is really simple but effective- just what I like.
Not heavy, but good material. Also room to put a reflector sticker that will show up when horizontal.
Since it sticks down a bit past the fender, I think it will be darn close to meeting the fender law for the converted bikes in Washington.

I haven't taken it out the woods yet, but I very highly recommend it. And this is from someone that was a bit skeptical at first.

If you ride on and off road, but one of these, you will like it!
(pics to follow).

I can't say enough good things about it!

Mark

Just an update on the Twist A Plate.

Out on the West end (Donkey Hill) saw me make a mistake on this somewhat challenging hill.
Because of that, I ended up with the bike on its side and a tree between the tyre and Twist A Plate.
It took me a bit to get the bike extracted (the hill is rather steep)---and the Twist A Plate came throught just great!

Still highly recommended

Mrk
