    2012 bike came with a hotbodies undertail. Anyone ever cut it up / drill holes to mount plate under the tail light and retain 98% of the undertail?

    Seems easy enough to make a plate mount fit, just wondered if someone had done it or had pics of it.

    Thanks

    Mine's a Gen I (2006), but I bought it with the hotbodies tail also. I laid masking tape over the area to drill to keep it from tearing up the plastic too much and ran two small carriage bolts through a plate holder, flat washers and stop nuts inside the tail.

    i have modded a few mototek and hotbodies over the years, i found that adding heavy layeres of fiberglass help preventing cracks at the bolt locations. In my case many a times my plate had the metal plate holder with integrated leds and the weight of it cause many cracks. good luck with your hotbodies project
