Is the rear light above the license a legal must have?

This is a discussion on Is the rear light above the license a legal must have? within the Ninja 650R Accessories forums, part of the Kawasaki Ninja 650R category; I'm still waiting for someone to cut a rectangular hole in the bottom of their taillight and glue a piece of clear plastic over it. ...

    I'm still waiting for someone to cut a rectangular hole in the bottom of their taillight and glue a piece of clear plastic over it. That might illuminate more than just the licence though. Would suck to have to have a blocker there to stop that dreaded illegal "rearward white light"

    Martin, You are right, they can get for just about anything, but prudence would lead me to believe that if the plate is lit, for the purpose of night legibility, then it should be legal.
    Sonny,

    I saw a thread regarding the pair valve. There was something in there that led me to think you were racing along w/ Gray/BRP.

    Not to speak for Sonny, but the tail light acts like a running light - it is always on dim - when you brake it goes to high. In this sense the license plate is always lit by the brake light/running light. If it is federal law - I expect it is more difficlut to interprete. In my case I seriously doubt I will leave the state of Minnesota w/ my bike. (But thanks for the invit BIO.)

    If memory serves, I had a FZR 600 that I removed the license light on. I was never stopped for that.

    If I get the energy after work, I'm going to take a closer look at the license plate situation - do some more measurements. See if my idea would work.

    In California, I believe the requirement is for the license plate to be visible from behind by up to 150 feet. I don't know the requirements beyond that. But here is good advice- CONTACT YOUR POLICE DEPT (I did) OR YOUR DMV. They will know. @ the police department, most departments have cops on bikes. You might want to ask for one of them.
