Clear alternatives integrated taillight wiring.

Hey all. I just scored a box full of 919 accessories. Yay.

Among the box was an unused clear alternatives integrated taillight, with resistors. However there is no instructions and from what I can tell the company no long exists for me to find instructions online.

There are only 4 wires, 2 if which go to a bulb type connector, which I assume is brake light. Am I right to think the other 2 wires simply go to the signal positive wires on there respective sides? It must also share a ground I guess. Would anyone happen to have a wiring installation sheet for this light?

This video is one I made for the BlasterX from CustomLED (Which is a far superior unit that the Clear Alternatives, due to much higher brightness/visibilty). Wiring might be similar:


I just bring up the fact about the superiority of the BlasterX as the Clear Alternatives was known to be a safety hazard because it was so hard to see, and I don't believe it had different colors of LEDs for the turn signals; just blinked the red LED's.

The BlasterX had incorporated both orange and red LED's and would flash the Orange led's at the same time as turning off the red LED's. Much easier to see:

I see the blaster x is on sale right now for $114.99. That seems like a great deal. If this clear alternatives one doesnt work out I might consider getting one to put behind the smoke lens 😉

You just barely missed out - I had my CustomLED BlasterX in the classifieds and it was picked up just the other day. Sold it for $50.

Used to see them for sale on here a few times a year, but of course things have been pretty slow lately. I just sold it because I no longer have a Honda that it fits.
