L plates front and rear

Hello

me again! The dealer had to replace my bike in the end (and after 3 weeks waiting for the clutch to be fixed he cannot fix it apparently)
. Get new one delivered tomorrow.

My question is how to fit the L plates on? Front can be stuck on obviously but how does the back one go on. Is it mounted to numberplate somehow??

Also for front I have seen some scooters with rigid L plates to the side of front forks. Is this doable??

Thanks!

You can buy mudflaps with L plates on,they are on ebay :)

Thats good of the dealer to swap your scooter,a lot of dealers wouldnt.

thanks Tipper! I ideally need them for tomorrow so might just bodge a 2 quid pack from tesco on until the ebay ones arrive ;-)

Yep its good, he had no choice really though. I wouldn't blow his horn too much tho as he hasn't kept us informed at all! he delivered it unfit for road so...
No sympathy :S

I'm still running mine with the dodgy clutch. Haven't spoken to the dealer at all about it as planning to upgrade soon. after a couple of oil changes it's better but you can't really perform fast hill starts as you almost have to pull away at idle speed to stop the back end skipping and jumping. I love the bloomin thing though!

Not sure if anybody spotted my emergency Facebook post over the weekend about losing all gears? Just something else for the last run owners to check are the gearbox selector cables have actually been clamped at the gearbox end! I got stuck driving home thirty miles in third gear... With a pillion! The holding nuts had been very well greased but never done up, so the cables slipped out and my gear change lever twisted around uselessly.
