Default LED integrated

I've got an 01 f4i and i'm looking to get an integrated tailight with the pimpbike undertail/undertray.

Who can vouch on a cost effective and super bright LED integrated tailight with directionals?

thanks

^I think spending a little more, and getting the turn signals on the undertail would be a little better. IMHO. It seems like your brake visibility AND turn signal visibility would greatly decrease.

've not seen LEDs in a undertail that lasted very long or was very bright.

I've got a Hotbodies undertail for sale with the brake lights/turn signals in the undertail. Let me know if you're interested.

The collective reason why you have your hotbodies undertail for sale most likely is because they suck...the LED are small and you can barely see them-brutal.


I'm going the route of a pimpbikes undertail/tray and an integrated because of visibility purposes and also i think it looks nice n sleek. Just gotta find a nice and bright integrated!

I'm very happy with my Clear Alternatives integrated light, and will get a Pimpbike undertail sometime to cap it all off. Go for it.

Yeah, i have an LED setup(can not remember the brand) that just isn't sufficient as far as visibility.I have had an issue with mounting the lisc plate on the undertail; literally going through 3 plates as they were ripped off from the "bracket" I was not able to mount it in certain ways as it would block it.

Ive had a few now, a valor (cheap ebay version) and 2 clear alternatives (clear & smoked). The valor almost broke directly out of the box, but as for the ca's both of them have been awesome, super bright. And zero problems.
