    Yeah that’s normally where I’d go but for some reason I can’t buy from him, eBay won’t let me?

    I usually figure that I'll keep nice and legal on the easy stuff to avoid giving the police the chance to pull me and check over everything else.
    For instance on my KX I have a full size wally factor nine plate in the hope it wouldnt give the police the chance to pull me and bother me over the competition only exhaust (you try finding a road legal exhaust for a two stroke 500 motocrosser, they just don't exist).

    Non standard plates are one of those things that often come up in those "I've just been pulled and it's so unfair" threads.
    Mind, so do loud exhausts but for that bike theres not much I can do, despite how much I still hate loud spannies.

    I get legal size lettering on a slightly smaller plate with no dealer address etc. It’s perfectly legal.

    I'm too mean to replace a perfectly usable plate for cosmetic reasons.

    8x6 FTW unless its on a bike that hasn't got a tail tidy then standard is fine

    Just got one off eBay. 8x6 with 3d letters and a border. Looks good, spacing is spot on and alignment is too, is black backed. Came very quickly given the guy is in Spain. Sellers name is plate_seller. See what he did there?!
    Was 10.95 inc. postage.
