REAR BRAKELIGHT/BLINKER COMBO IDEA
Hey guys, for what its worth, heres a idea that would really help a DIY'r around here. I put up a video below so you can actually see what i'm talking about. Now i know there are other ways for doing this and i was thinking about just changing the bulb socket to a dual like some cars have but this is what i decided on. I do like the other idea too if not better. The wiring should be hidden and connected to the harness's brake wire by just following where its at. If anyone has an idea they like to share or add...great! hope this helps


heres my link. turn down that music if its loud, i had it very very soft!

There probably is a post restriction, need like 5 post before posting vids, but that's a guess!

Yo like an "integrated" tail light? Like all the crotch rockets have lol

Since I've been doing all this work to my rear fender I've been thinking about making something along those lines.

Can't wait to see your idea.

Maybe since we know you arnt a bot you could just post the title of your video? If its on YouTube or something I'm sure we could Google it

I almost used an integrated run/turn/brake light on my sidemount plate, but decided to keep the signals on either side of the fender. Mostly, because the company I ordered the light from didn't send the correct light. It was simply a run/stop light. I already had the signals in place, so no big deal.

good share: comagination.com I *believe* that flashing tail lights are illegal if constantly on, but who cares.
