i have the on thats all over ebay and amazon. it looks like the stock taillight but its smoked. has the led white strip, turn signals, running lights, and brake lights. i love it. i think it looks great on the bike its just kinda weird how you wire it. i can send you a pic of how i soldered up the wires and stuff and i bet you could get the job done in about half an hour. it took me a while cause i had to play around with alligator clips trying to figure out what was what. after about 5 new fuses and 2 and a half hours my dad came home and figured it out in about 5 minutes... (proves what an electrician can do lol)

thanks, if you have a few pics great, is it easy to unhook when you go to the track. maybe instead of soldering i should use some connectors?

I have a Clear Alternatives integrated LED tail light, and I've enjoyed it. They seem harder to find now, though. I don't remember if it uses all of the stock connectors (don't think so), but it's easy to wire up.

ya i guess you could use connectors. i just don't trust them cause of all the vibration while riding. i don't wanna be braking and not have a brake light. but I'm sure you could. maybe some mail female connectors with some good electrical tape job. ill go take a pic of my wiring now and post a pic
