Are you sure you wired everything correctly?

I read about this issue somewhere before when I was looking into getting an integrated tail light... you need to install additional resistors in-line due to the lower voltage draw of the LED's.
I'm sure the manufacturer has some note about this, I can't remember what resistor size is needed, I'll try searching for it, you should as well.
note: I also have an 02 F4i so this might help you.

Green from bike goes to black on the taillight
black from bike goes to the yellow from taillight
Green with yellow strip from bike goes to red from taillight
And the other two wires go to the corrosponding colors for your turn signals...you plug into the solid color wires in the signal connectors only... leave the other open

You shouldn't have to add resistors unless the part is made extremly cheap...the taillights them selfs have been made with them already in them so they are plug and play to run on 12v ac...just like 99.9% of every other bolt on aftermarket led product sold

You have to add resistors if it's a front led signal..
but you talking about rear IT.
How about you take some Pictures...some really Good quality Pic's so we can see what's going on your wiring issue.. That is the best way we can help out..
