Why in some pictures does Cairolli have all red plates but lately him or Herlings have only a front red plate? Same with 250s, along with only needing a black front number. Then older pics of Roczen he only had a red front plate. Wtf is going on? I think only a red fromt plate looks stupid tbh. Same with only a black front plate. Looks sloppy. Whats up with green as well was that a different series? And blue I believe is women now but used to be AMA not in McGrath years but before? Whats goin on?

Ch-Ch-Changes.

Rules have changed. MXGP used to have a green plate for the real 250 class, but they changed to white ages ago.

Costs less to print one red plate than 3 plates. The rule is that your front plate has to correspond with the class your running, so white background with black numbers for 450 and black background with white numbers for 250. Some people choose to have all there plates follow the 250/450 plates and others go with what they think looks better. Same rules apply with the red plate, whether its the teams decision or the riders idk.

Here is the official words about number plates from the FIM.

01.55 NUMBER PLATES
They must be fitted as follows:
55.03
Number plates must be made of flexible materials only (e.g. plastic). The shape of
the front number plate is free and may be part of the general design of the
motorcycle.
26
However, the front number plate must have the minimum size necessary to carry a
three-digit number as described in Art. 55.07 and the Motocross World
Championship logo.
Team publicity is allowed on the front number plate within a space 50mm from the top
or bottom section of the number plate.
55.04
The plates curved not more than 50 mm out of a true plane must not be covered or
bent.
55.05 Front number plates
The front number plates curved not more than 50 mm out of a true plane must not be
covered or bent.
One plate must be fixed to the front inclined not more than 30° towards the rear from
the vertical plane. Holes can be perforated between the numbers on the number
plate. However, under no circumstances must the actual numbers be perforated.
For the solo classes of the Individual Motocross World Championship events, the
front number plate must always display (See Appendix "O"):
a) The background colour,
b) The number of the rider,
c) The FIM Motocross World Championship logo as shown on the diagram
(5 cm x 5 cm).
The numbers must be clearly legible. Reflecting numbers are forbidden. The following
minimum dimensions must be respected on the front number plate:
- Height of the number 140 mm
- Width of each number 70 mm
- Width of the stroke 25 mm
- Space between two numbers 15 mm
- Space between the FIM logo and the number 10 mm
55.06 Side number plates
The side number plates must be positioned above a horizontal line drawn through the
rear wheel spindle and the front edge of the plate must be behind a vertical line
drawn at 200 mm to the rear of the rider's footrest.
They must be fixed in such a manner as to be clearly visible and they must not be
masked by any part of the motorcycle or by the rider when seated in the driving
position.
In place of separate plates, a space of equivalent size in matt colours can be painted
or fixed on the bodywork.
27
For the solo classes of the Individual Motocross World Championship events, the
side number plate must always display (See Appendix "E"):
a) The number of the rider,
b) The FIM Motocross World Championship logo (5 cm x 5 cm),
and
c) Optionally, publicity of the rider's/team's sponsor(s).
There is freedom of design and publicity, but incorporation of the rider's number and
the FIM Motocross World Championship logo into the graphics is compulsory.
The color scheme for the background of the side number plates and the numbers is
free. However, there must be a clear colour distinction between the colour of the
number and the color of the background. The FIM logo must be in black or white.
55.07
The figures must be clearly legible and like the background must be painted in matt
colours to avoid reflection from sunlight. In general, the following minimum
dimensions must be respected on front number plates:
Height of figure: 140 mm
Width of figure: 70 mm
Width of stroke: 25 mm
Space between 2 figures: 15 mm
However, the following minimum dimensions must be respected on the side number
plates:
Height of figure: 100 mm
Width of figure: 70 mm
Width of stroke: 25 mm
Space between 2 figures: 15 mm
55.08
The English form for numbers must be used. That is single vertical line for the "one"
and a simple sloping line without a horizontal line for the "seven" (see diagram O).
55.09
All other number plates or markings on a motorcycle liable to cause confusion with
the number must be removed before the start of a competition.
Whenever official time keeping methods (transponders) are being used in the FIM
World Championships and Motocross of Nations events, competitors will be allowed
to put publicity on:
28
• the front number plate (for dimensions, see Art. 55.03). Publicity may be put
within a space, 50 mm from the top or bottom section of the number plate, (See
diagram O, the shaded area is reserved for publicity).
• the side number plates : the entire number plate may be used for publicity space.
For Motocross des Nations, the FMN’s national flag must be displayed on the side
number plates, whereby the specified dimensions must be respected.
55.12 Number plate colours
The background colours and figures vary according to the class of motorcycle and
the type of competition; the main rules are indicated in the Supplementary
Regulations for each meeting.
The following colours shall be used; and they must be matt colours, following the
RAL colour table, i.e.:

I think it looks cleaner and more professional to have the plates standardized. This aint the local track.... actually when I raced as a kid we had to have all 3 plates the same. Didnt the ama have a blue plate back in the day? Thats where the idea came back from Im pretty sure but its red now. Either way I love the red plate, blue looks badass too, and Im glad they brought the colored plate back.
