The Low and Mean side mount license plate kit is a great way to customize your Yamaha Star Bolt. This kit offers a vertical or horizontal license plate position along with a mount for the stock tail light. The brackets are made from 12 gauge steel or aluminum that has a very nice powder coat finish. The kit comes with a black license plate frame, zip ties, license plate lights, LM Sticker, and hardware. The license plate light wire will reach to the side mount, but you will have to cut the stock plug to wire in the light or wire it in to your preference. The LM sticker covers the hole in the rear fender left from the stock brake light.

What you need to know:

  • R-spec shock reservoir will hit the stock LED brake light mounted to the side mount license plate holder in the vertical position. However, in the horizontal position we suggest the stock LED brake light mount to the outside edge, which will clear this R-spec shock reservoir. See image above.
  • Check your state laws about positioning your plate vertical or horizontal.
  • Non-USA license plates larger than 7 inches by 4 inches will need to be cut down and re-drill to fit properly.
  • The stock brake/run wire harness will reach to the side to plug in the stock brake light.
  • The license plate lights are not a plug and play, you will need to decide how you would like to wire this in. We have some suggestions in our install video.
  • The “LM Bolt” sticker is a simple way to cover the hole in the rear fender if you relocate the brake light. Clean the fender well before you apply.

Yamaha Bolt Frequently Asked Question

  • Do I need a new wire harness when I move the running/ brake light to the side mount?
    No, your stock wiring harness will work. Watch our install video to see how to re-route your wiring.
  • Does the side mount license plate come ready to bolt on?
    Yes this part is ready to bolt on besides the LEDs. You will need to wire in these LEDs to the wire harness.
  • Do I have to remove my axle?
    No, you only loosen the axle to make room for the mount and then re-tighten the axle to factory specs.
  • Do I need a professional mechanic to install this product?
    Professional installation is recommended but this depends on your own garage skills, please know your limits and watch our install video above.

    Couldnt be happier with my plate relocator. I have it mounted vertical and the install was unbelievably easy. Had someone hold my bike up straight, pyt the bracket into place, and tughtened everything back up. Nice that i dint have to remove the entire shaft, just loosen it. Holding up very well after a few weeks, and changed the entire look of the back of my bike since i was able to remove all of the plastic from the back. Also, the lighted bolts that come with it work great. I only use one on the top right corner and my whole plate is lit up, may install the other or just save it to use later on. Just a note, i spliced my wire into the existing license plate light wire by cutting and wiring them together to make it plug and play. Not much room to work but it will with patience.

    Totally redefines the aesthetics of the bike. Definitely adds to the bobber look. Cleans up the rear fender really well and corresponds with the lines of the shocks/struts. Very solid bracket. Not some cheap grade metal that’s going to be flimsy and give out. Everything you need is in the kit, and the only stock screws used are the ones that held the running brake light onto the fender. However, a couple of notes: 1. The “fix” of applying a decal to the gaping hole where the brake light was mounted in the stock position is a little skimpy. Might consider a rubber grommet with some sort of custom logo or something instead. Maybe a few bucks more, but it would be worth it. 2. There are some modifications to be done with wiring. The video suggests some sort of connector for the running light to tap into the brake/running harness, but I simply clipped the ground and hot wire on the end of the harness connecting to the stock license plate light and hard wired it to the running lights in the kit. Plenty of wire to re-route back up underneath the seat. Other than those couple of little suggestions, totally worth the money! Solid work as always fellas!

    This license Plate bracket was more than what I expected. The quality was above average with all(including aluminum casing around LEDs) were made of sturdy metal. The LEDs are nice and bright which helps in backing my bike up at night. With my R-Spec I left the tail light and mounted vert, and was able to then remove my under fender for a cleaner look. Props to L&M.

    Great product, and thanks to the instructions included, a pretty easy installation! Thanks Low and Mean for another great product.

    The kit is easy to install and gives the bolt a much better look on the rear. The only gripe I have is that the plate lights I initially received shorted out. Upon inspection, I noticed little protection (if any) to the LED circuit board. L&M immediately replaced the LEDs, which is kudos to them, but the new LEDs still had little weather protection. I ended up coating the LED opening with resin and sealing the screw in portion on the bottom with silicone adhesive. Works well so far. Be sure to look at the LEDs if you’re planning on riding the bike in the rain at all to ensure it’s protected from water.
