It isn't bad at all. It will take you roughly about an hour if you are diligent in your work. Take the two hex bolts out of your underside, then take your rear seat(or cowl) off, and take the rear plastic off the tail. All you need to do is push in the center punch plastic bolts and remove them. The plastic should come off farily easy. Once you have that done, remove the other two bolts from under the trunk space and disconnect your turn signals (be sure not to disconnect your tail light assembly) and remount your plate somewhere else. I mounted mine against the battery box. Just be careful not to puncture the battery, or you will have a nasty suprise. As for stock signals, if you want to keep them, you might as well just chop off the lower part of the tail that you don't want and keep the rest. You will be looking at more work for yourself than necessary to make a bracket that will hold those signals and still make a clean look. Good luck.

Go to Jardineproducts.com, they have a rear fender eliminator kit that you can use the stock stock lights with. I have one on its way, the cost is $79.95. When you get to the web site download the catalog, there is a picture of it on page 28.
$80 isnt that bad. i originally ordered the kit from www.competitionwerkes.com ($150!) because i thought that was all that was out there. when they jacked up my insurance ("up to 600cc class" to "601+ class"... dont ask ) i was forced to look at other options. i found a nice little one from www.targa-acc.com for $50. ive also read on here about a bunch of guys making their own plate bracket. i liked the one from CW because i thought i might be able to use my stock rear blinkers... the targa one is entirely too small for that.
guess ill be getting used to the short stalks after all --
I guess if u dont have access to tools and a vise...
I made a bracket from sheet aluminum for a friend that just bought an R6 and it took 2 hours including painting. His cost was $14-$15, he bought short stalks and electrical connectors. I had a can of primer and black paint already.

I used a sheet aluminum very thin got it for $2...I had the short stocks I think they were $15 or so....I got some LED bolts and plate frame from the Harley store so I have a legal plate light (that stuff was 'bout $50)......I left the aluminum unpainted...It took about 4-6 hours with the running around..I left the cargo hooks on and dilled out were the reflector mounted for the short stocks..
