Put one on my Wee last week. Seems like good quality construction and brighter than stock. it also fills out the taillight better than the 2 5W LED 1157 replacements that I had in before.

The description is wrong on the touratach site. It actually has 7 different flash modes + steady.

It's fairly easy to remove the existing taillight assembly from the bike. The only thing that i was concerned about was getting the sealed assembly separated. Heating it in an oven for about 5 mins like they recommend worked fine and it pulled right apart. Heated it up again and it snapped right back together. Total time for me was about an hour and I've got minimal bike mechanical skills.

yes, i was a little concerned about putting my $135 LED board in an oven too (after it's attached to the taillight, the entire thing goes back in the oven). It's only @ 200 degrees for about 5 minutes and there was no damage as it's been working fine. Without this method of taking the assembly apart, I see no other way to get a nice bed of LEDs into that factory sealed unit though. The only other option would be one of those spring loaded-type LEDs that expand once they are through the holes in the back. Sure, $135 is a LOT of $$ for a tail light, I'm obsessed with LEDs though.
