Hodakaguy's "Twist-A-Plate" - Rotate your Dual Sport Plate

The Twist-A-Plate is designed to allow you to run your plate in the Vertical position when off road and in the Horizontal position when on the road to remain legal, now you can be Legal when you need to be! The plate is pre-drilled and ready to mount onto all KTM's with the Euro LED tail light assy, should also work great on the Husabergs with the same Euro Tail light setup. (Can be used as a universal setup on other bikes as well if you drill the corresponding 3 mounting holes onto your existing plate bracket) Each Twist-A-Plate comes with stainless steel mounting hardware and detailed mounting instructions, mounts up in just minutes!

The Twist-a-plate is made from high impact UV stable ABS plastic that is very strong and durable. To rotate the plate you just pull the quick release pin, rotate the plate and re-install the pin....it's that simple.

This is my second generation Twist-A-Plate. My first test unit used embedded magnets to hold the plate, while it worked great it was less secure than the current version. The 2nd generation unit has a larger/stronger pivot assy as well as the quick release pin that adds extra security.

The Twist-A-Plate is $37 + $5 Shipping.

Here's a few shots of the assy mounted on my KTM 530XCW as well as a short video demo of the unit.


Here's a couple shots of the unit mounted on the bike








And within seconds your in the legal horizontal position.








From this




To This...in seconds.




And a short video demo of the Twist-A-Plate.

Nice work!!! I am in for one for my 990A, I could use one before my plate disintegrates. Gravel has a way of chewing plates to little bits.

How much?

Does the plate just lock into position with the magnets? The swivel obviously has some kind of an anchor bolt or pin?

If it's priced relatively cheap you'll sell a bunch.

Thanks for the comments. Not sure on pricing yet but I'm going to do my best to keep them affordable. I'm going to make a second version soon with a stronger rotating pin setup... I'll post up here with updates as they happen.

I just finished the updated Twist-A-Plate design and now have them available for sale. I updated the original post at the top of this thread with current pics, pricing etc.

sweet looking mount..

Can you provide a photo of the mounting plate and associated mounting holes for fitting on another enduro bike?

I would like to know if it will fit my TE630 ..

Also the dimensions or distance apart of the mounting holes and over=all dimension of the entire assembly?
