Green taillight lens

Was at a local bike night, and the Ninja parked next to me had this tail light:

Still need it.

Looks like jello to me.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Get a clear tail lens and:
1) Dye/stain with green Rit
2) Spray with translucent green paint (common with models and RC cars)
3) Spray with clear coat mixed with green auto paint

I've got one I will never use... If someone wants it pm me. You'll get the crappy LEDs that came with the lense. I think I may have fixed the cold solder joints, use at your own risk (at least half the board lit when I recieved it).

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Yes, I'll take that clear lens! Just let me know what you need. Aparently I can boil it in some green Rit, and it gets darker, the longer I boil it.

A mailing address and a single, sane, driven, non-homely woman would be a good start.

That's what I thought, but I've seen a few online sources that claim it will work.

I got some Rit. I'll take some pictures when the lens shows up of before and after.
If it works, it may mean those with a blue or yellow bike may be able to follow suit.
We'll see

There's definitely 'somethin' on that lense... but it's white, seems sticky.
