Derek, I've always thought the huge gap is ugly, so I've left the original license plate holder on all my Victories. The huge gap is there for a reason ... because the rear suspension design is a soft tail, you need that gap for the wheel to move in while compressing the shock when going over bumps. I love the look of hard tail bikes that have the rear fender an inch from the tire, but I also love the comfort of a soft tail. Cost/Benefits I guess.
Many people have lowered the rear with the available lowering links, but be careful and note all the available information on this forum. It seems that you can bottom out easily and have the tire scrape the inside of the fender. And on the Jackpots, the rear wiring harness is wired right in the middle of the fender. That would be the first to go.
