I made a fender eliminator
Already had one on the bike but it looked ugly and the plate was too far back under the tail light. So I designed my own and 3D printed it. Check out the attached images.
I know you're wondering if it's strong enough to hold a plate, and the answer is yes (I'm not retarded I tested it).
This fits the R6 but check out the sketch with dimensions (in millimeters) for the bolt pattern to see what it will fit. Anyways it's easy to move the holes around in the software.
The 2 parts bolt together so you can change the plate angle to allow enough clearance with the fender, then tighten it. It's low-profile and looks pretty good on the bike.
If you want one you can send me your email and I'll give you the .STL file. Ask a friend to 3D print it for you, or print it off of those online printing services. If you really want one and can't figure it out I could print a few on my printer, just pay me like $10 for the materials/printer time.

I made one too, but considerably lower tech. I had an old galvanized T-strap in the garage, stuck it on the edge of the curb and hit it with a BFR (ok, actually a hammer) to bend it into a 90 degree angle.
Bottom of the T is attached to the bike, top holds the license plate.
Ok, maybe a license plate mount and not a fender eliminator.

Will PM the email address. Love making things useful on the printer!
What material did you use? And what print settings? Also - for modifications - is the Solidworks file also available?

Thick rubber washers? idk.
Is bending your plate under technically legal? i mean it still is there but not readable unless you bend or crouch down.
i bent mine under. the old plate was still attached and has the license plate lights in the bolt holes. being too lazy to cut wires and redo it at the time, i wrapped the old plate in electrical tape and mounted the new one over it using the bottom holes of the old one. made sure there was no chance of contact with the tire. that would suck.
had a cop bend down to write my plate number once but he didnt say anything about the plate. he was already pissed at me bc i told him to screw off. i was on the phone with my kid standing next to my bike and he thought i was "suspicious" so he stopped and kept trying to talk to me.
