If you mean to "cut the beaver". The OR reflectors are mounted on the back side of the fender struts.

There is a requirement under New Zealand land transport act for there to be a red reflector on the rear of a motorcycle and there are positioning requirments. the Tidy tail (or fender eliminator ) leaves you with only the numberplate .I was wondering what guys here are doing to get a warrent of fitness .Eg where do they put their reflector.

Consider making a bracket that you attach under the plate via the lower plate mounting holes and attach a reflector to it. A bracket 2 to 3 CM by the width of the bracket would not be too difficult to fabricate. You could also bend it to allow the reflective material to be perpendicular to the road.

How may square CM does the law require?

Is this what you are looking for?

Not sure if you are looking for the full debeaver or just to move the plate up and show off a little more fat tire, but this is what I did to mine.

Not sure if you would need the reflectors if you have the LED's on it.
