License Plate Mounting Inserts

So is it just NY State, or is it BMW? Why don't license plate mounting inserts on K1200LT line up with holes in NYS license plate? Seems peculiar that this would not be standard spacing.

Talking Plates

I believe that most plates are made in state prisons; maybe the lock-ups don't like doing it in NYS

Plates do vary slightly from state to state. The inserts into which the LP mounting screws screw into are removable. I pulled mine out (screw in slightly, and use screw as a handle to pull it out) and bolted through the tail section and used some loctite and a lock washer to stop it from coming off.
