new MOT rules

hi all, just to let you know that numberplates and fuel caps are now part of bike mot's,

the fuel caps shouldn't cause any of us any problems, but the new rules say that no. plates have to be on 2 lines and legal text, and readable from 15 metres away.

You have been warned!!!

Re: new MOT rules

When I first registered my bike here in the UK, it was imported from Germany, I couldn't get a number plate until the bike had its MOT. Now there's a catch 22 for you.

Re: new MOT rules

So that means they should issue us with a rectification notice instead of a fine for small plates
