Does anyone have an un-crumpled Michigan motorcycle plate laying around?

I'm looking for the centerline to centerline spread between the mounting holes at the top of the plate.

All I have is a motorcycle plate from AZ. It has a 6" spread, and it doesn't fit this new license plate holder I just bought. You'd think that all U.S. plates would have the same dimensions. The plate holder spread is more like 5.75".

:think:

Thanks...

Hey Smit-dog! Read 'em and weep, 5.75 center to center is on the money! That's why they're crumpled!

Hey bill where'd you buy that bracket? When you get a plate on it could you post a pic?

Scott's also resells them.

The owner wanted some pics of the bracket mounted on a KDX. There are 2 plastic bosses that have to be cut off for the bracket to fit correctly. The bosses have metal threaded inserts, but if you take a hacksaw and cut in as close to the underside of the fender as possible, you'll miss cutting through the metal, and just have to go through plastic.

I'll get another pic with a plate on it this weekend.

Nice bracket! For sure I'm in "bubblewrap" mode! Being able to ride at DW was a plus after having busted wrists the first couple of years! Hope you have fun this weekend!
