A Bright Mod.
Finally got around to a useful mod on the Wee. A while back I purchased an LED brake/tail lite at the auto parts. Typically used on boat/utility trailers. It is about 3.75 inches in diameter and has separate LED's for the license plate. Off goes the stock license plate lite and on goes the LED unit. Really big difference in illumination now. The stock tail lite has LED's but they have nothing on this trailer light. I can't imagine some one not seeing it from behind.
Install is fairly easy. It fits on the flat area vacated by the stock lite and the mounting holes have to be hogged out a touch. I also removed the license bracket and bolted the plate directly on the fender.
Wiring, you have to remove the tail section behind the seat to do the wiring. I was already there so why not kill two birds with one stone. The wiring is easy but time consuming. I only used a test lite for checking power etc. and tapped into the tail lite wiring on the bike for power and ground.
Appearance, debatable. Function before form works for me.................................Oh my, just had a thought, two more of those would make bitchin rear signals. Hmmmm ?
