Default TST Industries Integrated tail light review (2007 - 2010)

So I did a couple reviews on 600rr.net and just wanted to share them with you guys. Tell me what you think. Thanks!


-Why you decided to purchase the product -
I based my decision on the following two threads:

From what I read, TST's IT is made specifically for the 07-10 model, not only that, it was a direct plug and play, no splicing or cutting if you didn't want to. Also, it is really bright according to a lot of people.


-Where you bought it from -
Website:
http://tstindustries.com/product.php...e=0&featured=Y


-Price -
$146 shipped


-Did the product meet your expectations? How/Why?
Definitely, this is a great product, the instructions were very simple, I never worked on a bike before, and I am not mechanically inclined when it comes to cars, but the instructions were easy to follow. The product itself is great, I love how it looks, everything was easy, was plug and play. The load resistors were a little bit, i tried them on, but did not like how the flash rate was, which was normal, I felt that having the rapid flash rate would make you more noticeable, yet annoying looking. The light is very close to the exhaust shield, might even be touching it, but i don't think it is a problem since thats what the shield is for, if I did not reuse the heat shield, i think it would be fine, but I plan to get a leo vince S/O before the season starts anyways. It is a stock exhaust, so your results might vary.


Edit: A little information about the heat shield from Bart and TST

We have seen this cause the light to melt on some bikes. And in the end if you get an aftermarket exhaust you will be taking off the shield anyway.




-Would you recommend the product to others?
I would definitely recommend it, its not that expensive, very easy, everything fit great, its super bright, I love it. Not only that, shipping was really fast, granted, they are on the east coast, but actually sending it out was real fast.


-Would you buy it again?-
I would definitely buy again, its a quality product from a great company. They hooked me up and answered any and all of my questions. The product is top notch and so is the customer service!


I don't have any pictures installed, just a quick video of the light working. I apologize for the quality of it, I have a very crappy and old camera.


Here is the actual package, very small, a cd for comparison.

Everything nicely wrapped and organized, it comes with the IT, load resistors, instructions to install the IT, separate instructions to install the load resistors, and taps for the resistors.

Here you can see the brackets on the IT, to ensure secure and tight fit, also, as you can see, they just plug right in, quick, simple, easy:

Here is an updated video. I used a better camera this time and did it in the daytime, still indoors but had more light in. I also added a brake modulator though.
