Just a random question I wanted to throw out there regarding installing number plates. This is all due to a conflict me and my son had with last night regarding his new UFO number plates and the little inserts that go in the holes for mounting. From day one every number plate I have ever removed/replaced had the little alum. inserts pressed into the holes from the outside (meaning the flange is on the outside of the hole where the head of the screw would meet)) which basically acts as a washer for the screws and prevents the plastic from getting squished when tightening. Even the factory YAMI plates on my son's 450 have the inserts installed from the outside (flange out). Well my son argued-argued and argued some more till I got to the pissed off mode last night that the inserts that he installed on his new plates are suppose to be installed from the inside? ***? That means the flange is now on the inside of the plastic where it does nothing. Please tell me I am right and that the flange of the inserts always go on the outside of the hole in the plastics. This also goes for the front fender, etc. When I have about 100 replies from you all, i am going to send this thread to my kid for him to read. He (16 yrs old) thinks he knows everything and he needs to start listening to his dad about this motorcycle stuff who knows a whole lot more then he ever will, and I am going to prove him wrong for once and for all lol.
