Bought a leftover 02 RS.....rear plastic fender has a flat surface for a tag, but it's narrower than a tag. Is there supposed to be a factory bracket here??

Same thing happened to me. When I got home with my new '04 RS there was no place to mount a plate. So, I used the bracket that was once on my Ducati (pre-modification) and drilled the rear plastic to accomodate the Duc bracket. Voila! The RS is now the beneficiary of an Italian stem cell transplant. Or something like that.

Yes, it does, Scottius -
Mine is a leftover 02 RS - original dealer says they don't come with a bracket, and of my two local dealers here in Atlanta, one uses a Kawasaki bracket, and the other a Ducati -
This is kind of bush league of Triumph, but it looks like the fix is easy. What were you going to suggest?

Just making sure about the reflector since that is another flat spot at which to mount your plate. Sounds like you've got it under control.

They don't come with a bracket! Bulls***! My 2002 RS came with a bracket. As a matter of fact I flipped the stock Triumph bracket up side down and re-used it when I did my fender-ectomy. I'd make the dealer 'actually' look in the parts fiche instead of buying a Kawasaki part. (probably just easier to get and cheaper if he is going to have to eat the cost!)

More evidence of a screwed up Triumph dealer network. How they all have different procedures for supplying a tag bracket is bush league!
