Home-made Tail-light integrator 919

I know someone has probably thought of this before, but I was thinking about a fender eliminator kit and my wife said I could have 20 bucks to spend. That meant I needed to be creative.....................
I used to work for Uhaul in highschool and remembered that some cars required a converter to hook up a trailer wiring harness. Anywho I took the rear of my bike apart, cut off most of the fender, saved the blinkers for ebay, relocated the tag with original hardware, moved the tag/light, soldered in the converter from oreilly's (12.38 w/tax) and tested it. It works, the only downfall is that you need to upgrade to heavyduty bulbs or your blinker goes hyper when you apply the brakes at the same time. I took pictures for those special people who think I'm full of crap, but I need to set up a webpage somewhere to post them.

Now I don't remember why I was telling you guys/gals about this, but I do like to type on aimlessly...............................

Anywho..........it's a cheap way to integrate your blinkers into your taillight at least until you can afford a fancy kit if you don't like it.

Does anyone out there make those led adapter bulbs to replace our factory 919 brake light bulbs?

Glad to hear it works, but don't ever start your post with "my wife said I could have 20 bucks to spend"...

Been there done that and so have many other 9er's. Click on my Mike's bikes signature for details. The Triton EL-12 electronic flasher is used to slow down the blink rate.

Save your money, don't buy the LED replacement bulbs. They will vibrate loose when plugged into our flat blade bulb sockets.

The hot setup is to buy the Clear Alternative LED combination tail light/brake light/ blinker assembly. It's the best integrated LED rear lighting available today. Check out Adam's website and you will see what I mean.

Don't feel bad, I'll give you get a A+ for effort.
In reality this mod. has been done over and over from as far back as 1999 with the Yamaha R1 and R6 tail lights.

c-mon mike ... 99' ??? LOL

how bout a 1982 cb900f bol d'or I had the tailights separated with a piece of plastic cut out of a tide container epoxied between them, so it separated the light then hooked up a "integrator" that was actually for a 1993 ford ranger

worked pretty nice... no pics after the mod but I still got a pic of my tank ... long since blown up and sold for parts

gotta respect the oldskewl these things were pretty badass for their day.

Diggin' the 900f, typhoon! Ya gotta love the cafe style fairing on that guy. There's just something about the F line of CBs that I just love.

Drivit, I don't have the stash sytem. All I have for sale is a 900rr exhaust header with a Jardine muffler. I put on the 900rr system because of the stink issue. Gets rid of it totally. 100 bucks or best offer to anyone who's interested. Pictures are on my website.

LED setup is pretty sweet setup. The best LED setup I've seen for use durring a sunny day. Frickin' Sweet at night.......
