Interesting to hear opinions on plates and cans. I have a standard plate on my bike at 9x7 but there is so much room around the number that I am replacing it with an 8x6. 7x5 is too small but I reckon I can get away with the 8x6.

I'd also like a louder small can, but still legal - they seem to be 200+

i've found on my '01 SV that the Delkevic has the right balance of presence, noise & police tolerance.
It's a 450mm one, so borderline legal with baffle.

Give the bike a bit of power & it growls. It's enough to make cars aware of you when filtering & I've even had a police biker compliment the noise my bike makes!

The numberplate is standard but I've trimmed down the rear mudguard so it looks quite snug & tidy.

It's not the size of the plate.
It is the size of the number or letters and there spacing.

Yeah, mine is really pretty indistinguishable from standard by those rules. Flew through the MOT with it on (because I forgot to take it off!). It was really ugly as standard, looks OK to me now and still very clear for the speed cameras to see...

I have used 8x6 plates on all my bikes for years.

Never had a problem with any cops over it.
