Superbright LED brake lights

I know I could go out to the garage, take apart the rear end of my 919, and check, but do you any of you guys know which one of these I should buy?

I believe the 7443 is the correct one.
I had two regular 7443-r15 bulbs from them previously.

Thanks.

I was just about to order, and I saw this notice:

"Your vehicle may require an LED compatible Flasher or Load Resistor. LED brake/tail lamps will not flash with most stock flasher units due to their extremely low current draw."

So... Is there something else I need to get to make these bulbs work?

Don't waste your money. The OEM bulbs will do better than the LED bulbs in the OEM housing.

If you want LED brakes, get a CUSTOMLED unit.

You are right. I should. They are nice.

I'm just looking for brighter brake lights and the flash flash flash solid pattern.

Both equally illegal, by the way. Non-conforming light source, might blind drivers behind you.

The custom led board you can program it to blink how ever many times ( up to 7? I think) before it goes solid

You'll still need a relay, FYI. They sell those as well, or you can get one on ebay.

Only if you are eliminating the rear blinkers for the CLED taillight OR replacing any of the blinkers with led turn signals

When I got my 9er the running light filament had burned out in my tail so I replaced the bulbs with the LED ones you linked to - I have to say that I like them but they aren't any brighter than the stock bulbs (maybe even a little less, I couldn't do a comparison).

I rode with a friend with a Suzuki Bandit on Sunday. He had LED bulbs in the stock unit. A guy on a Harley pulled up at a stoplight and told him his brake light wasn't working. It was...just really dim.

Order placed for the custom LED integrated brake light! Also got the relay I needed.

Now, with the superbrightLED driving lights I put on the front, combined with these new brake lights, combined with the high visibility riding jacket I wear and white helmet, I may be able to survive LA traffic.

I hope.

You just need a louder exhaust

But be careful, CB700S will just tell you they are illegal because they'll make everyone go deaf.

Sorry CB700S, had to poke fun at the irony of a louder horn at my expense.

A horn I may go for. Perhaps I'll do that after the rear brake light upgrade.

You're the one who started the whining about how certain mods were illegal. I'm just returning the favor.

Seems the joke fell on deaf ears...

Since you clearly can't take a joke and insist you're right despite the science/facts that shows you're wrong, yet keep turning to red herring arguments is a joke in and of itself.

Here, have some popcorn or something.

Those custom LED units are so bright, I'm thinking about running it for my headlight. Is that legal?

Don't care, so long as there's no glare
