Kuryakyn Boomerang cover .......any side mount plates?
« on: Nov 24, 2012, 03:54:47 PM »
Does anyone know of a chrome license plate side mount  that will work with the Kuryakyn Boomerang Cover?
I have looked and found none so far, but haven't given up yet.  hoped to get some suggestions here.  If I have to get something and modify it, so be it.  There is so much out there I am hoping I just have not come across what I am looking for yet....

you might have to go with the kuryakyn side mount like Mr T has, it mounts further toward the back tire on the swing arm. He has a good pic of it in his gallery.

Thanks for that info.  I really hope to find a curved license plate frame & bracket that follows the contour of the boomerang cover and mount it right there...  I think that will look real good rather then having it out there by itself towards the back wheel...
I am sure I will end up modifying something....but I enjoy looking and seeing what is out there.

I bought one of these shown in the picture but you have to use spacers or bend it to get it to clear the swing arm. I actually put a bend in mine and I had to weld a support on it because I would sometimes hit it with my foot when I would take off from a stop or was in traffic walking the bike and it would bend it back into the swing arm. I bought a revers curved chrome license plate frame from this place.  http://www.pinedasmetalcustomdesigns.com/apps/webstore/products/show/3175210
Then I bought a radiantz short tag LED light. Had to do some fabrication to make it all work but it turned out pretty good. Looking at pictures of the boomerang it looks like it covers the holes you need to mount this type of tag mount. If you do end up with a tag frame like this and you decide to put some bends in it make sure you bolt it down to something while bending, if you don't the spread between the mounting holes will change and they will not line up when you try to bolt it to the bike.
Good luck

I checked out the site,  the pictures there were a big help, made me think about a few things being able to see how the look there, idea of clearances, etc.  I am wondering about them clearing the big ugly nut there under the passenger peg because that thing sticks out a bit further then i thought.  But I like the ones they have.
on a different note, I have 5 buddies I go on a trip with once or twice a year depending on our work schedules.
A couple of them I jokingly say are gambling addicts, they bet on anything....so we always go once a year to Charles Town WV for the horse track and casino there.   How close is that place to you?
We usually make a long weekend of it, ride skyline drive while there...ride during day, gamble & drink at night....thank god for the casino shuttles to get us back to our rooms safely every night..

No kidding, I am only 20 minutes from the Casino. My sister in-law lives right down the street from there. Have you been there this year, they have finally let them ad table games.

yes, I beleive it was Late May we went, last few trips we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express.  Pretty sure that is when we went because the weekend after that was my Dover Delaware Nascar weekend with the trailer...Might be from Jersey but have some "redneck" in me too!  lol
Most likely we'll be heading your way once again sometime after the winter weather breaks....I don't even want to think how long down the road that will be.... hate cold weather!
But yea,  they had all kind of poker tables, craps, blackjack...  my favorite tables were the ones the girls were dancing on while the bands played....

Yep I know what you mean about the could whether, I am originally from upstate NY right up on lake Ontario. I sure don't miss the snow from up there.
