Fitting a genuine Yamaha Reg Plate holder (with light & reflector) for a WR to a TTR...
Permalink  
 


Ok, so as I mentioned when I joined I recently bought a low mileage TTR250 which had only been used off-road, but the road fittings - indicators, mirrors and plate holder - came with the bike.

Anyway I recently went about fitting the road gear, but couldn't work out how to fit the supplied plate holder - it appeared to be missing some mounting brackets to attach it to the rear frame or guard.

So I dropped in to our local Yamaha dealer who eventually worked out that I indeed had a genuine Yamaha plate holder, but that it was for a WR rather than a TTR. I then remembered that the guy who sold me the bike had also earlier sold a WR250, so then deduced that he must have given me the plate holder for that.

Never mind, I set about making a mount to fit the WR plate holder to the TTR, and the result is shown in the attached pics.

I'll separately post some pics of the mounting setup I made for it, and also some showing the factory (Australian issue) plate holder for a TTR250 (on somebody else's bike), which in my view is nowhere near as cool or racey as my WR holder! :)

Cheers

So here are some pics of other bikes with the Aussie issue factory plate holder, very upright and "blocky/rectangular" in comparison and all plastic by the look of it...

Yes - that is defo a WR250R/X number plate holder!

The original TTR number plate holder from the early models was of a sensible size as below:

Frame mounts shown here:

Steve has a used example in his shop here

Thanks Brian

Yep that definitely looks less dorky than the Aussie OEM issue plate holders shown above, but I'm actually quite liking the look of my WR holder now that I've fitted it, :)

Cheers

Thanks Terry - yep that is certainly tidy, and the price is fair enough, but still not as cool or stylish as a WR one though I reckon, lol.

 I fitted a tail tidy on my WRR...the OEM stuck out so far, on my 2011 TTR I cut the mudguard back in line with the bottom of the rego plate, see photo

Hi and yes, exactly what I did with mine.
Great Minds think alike eh TerryK.
Way too dorky leaving it that long when one minute with a Hacksaw made it cooler.
🤪
Obviously NZ and Aussie Number Plates are of similar size.
Those big (square) UK Plates would be a different prospect.
Cheers

Here's another type of "tail tidy" I've seen for the TTR250 recently...

It's stainless steel and you bend the centre mount to set the entire plate at the angle you want.

Yep - our UK plates are enormous cry

The stainless steel tail tidy in your photos are from Totally TTRs. Steve normally has them here - not sure when he expects to get them back in stock.

Do you guys run a rear reflector with your tail tidy?

I'm in new South Wales we are supposed to have a reflector but have never had one. I fitted one on my Dr to get it registered then removed it 

From a guy who has been pulled up near Sydney the officer was looking for a reflector  45deg up from the swing arm  . Might be why the Australian bikes have the reflector down low 

All my road worthy stuff was removed by the dealer when new  I still have it all in a box

 Very true, I believe the rego plate should be 45deg from the rear axle, when I cut the TTR mudguard ext. I fitted a stick on reflector to the number plate light. As for the WRR it has got a little LED for the number plate but no reflector

I could live with the WRR but not the TTR in standard form
