UK Tax disc holders
- My trophy came with the tax disc holder on a brake calliper bolt on
the right hand side.
When I took the wheel off for a new tyre, one of the calliper bolts on
the left hand side was not even finger tight and there was very little
thread left in the calliper. I guess this explains why the tax disc
holder was on the wrong side of the bike.
I had the bike shop put a heli-coil in and all is good now, but the
tax disc now lives under my seat.
Does anyone in the UK have a good suggestion of where to mount it? I
want it out of the way, don't want it on anything critical and don't
want it in a position where it could clash with the radiator when
hitting a pot hole. The only other place I can see is inside the wind
screen like on a car but because the screen is so far forward I think
this will restrict my vision and be a distraction, and also runs more
of a risk of being thieved.
Otherwise, it's going to stay under the seat and I'll run the risk.
Officially it should be on the left hand side forward of the engine.
I have checked through the old messages, but all I found was a post
pointing at pictures that I can't find.
Many thanks, Simon.

- i have mine mounted on the right side infill panel(down by yor right
knee). allen bolt should already be in there, you can reach through the
grill/fins on the side panel to get to the nut on the other side. i can
send a photo if needed.
- Lower left fairing Allen bolt, so the holder slots in between the fairing
and the retaining bolt. Disc holder hangs out about level with the water
