    Rear Lighting

    I love everything about my '13 TTSE except the tail lites. Having upgraded from a Goldwing, which served me well, the rear lites seemed very in adequate. I didn't like any of the aftermarket lighting that is available, so I fabricated my own for a total cost of $50 and a few hours. Now I have additional red and amber tail lites, directional's and a brake lite, on a modulator. Also added LED driving lites to the RG adventure bars.

    Parts and materials used for my rear lites: 6" oval led's from superbrightleds.com (2 ptsm-a10, 1 ptsm-r10, 1 lsc-100a modulator).
    I fabricated the mount from an old aluminum speed limit sign and fastened it under the license plate with 4 ss screws and lock nut, cable tied the wires neatly out of the way. Made elect. connections and put the modulator under the seat.
     I'd like to say "thank you" to Coconut for all your post and replies. You and many others have enlightened me on many issues, most notably, TSB 154. My bike is in the shop as I type for that, and 10K mile service

    I really like the led light bar on my trunk, but this is a great idea for some more light down low.

    Any chance of a video clip with activation?  Or pictures of the same?

    Thanks for some ideas :002:
