Fancy Bike Thing rear and tail tidy

I am currently sporting a Motobox kit, but ever since watching Tron Legacy I wanted the Tron rear light. I even almost bought a Ducati Sport Classic 2 years before even taking my motorcycle license.

I even asked the manufacturer of the FLEDA light to make one for the R nineT but he couldnīt find a bike to prototype on

Go on, Slabby! You know you want one!

Hi Baldy,

I want to believe the website I really do about Plug-and-Play, I wish this
Manufacturer could hire a professional technical illustrator and provide a
Clean, technical, well written .pdf file of the installation instructions on line, so
It could be downloaded and looked at before purchasing...you know like
Harley Davidson does.

Don't know if it is legal in my state...but I like the wrap around design.Sweet!

The guy that owns the company is known to this forum so maybe he will take this on board. You do have a good point. The web site says an install video is on it's way so that might demonstrate how easy the unit is to install.

The Motobox unit took me all of 45mins to install (taking my time) and all the plugs with this fitted into the sockets already in the wiring loom. I am certain this one is the same in this respect.

Road legal? Come on Mr Slab! With that beard and a nice open face helmet and wrap-around shades you'll look like a bad-assed outlaw biker! No cop will come close!

Why not pop into the local cop shop and ask if your state has laws against integrated indicators?

Today I'll be mostly riding.....

Here is my State law about turn signal lamps when you have to get your bike's
Yearly inspection sticker....that I dug up on the inter web...Looks like No.

Turn signals. Each motorcycle manufactured on or after January 1, 1973 shall be equipped with front and rear turn signal lamps. Front turn signal lamps shall be amber mounted at or near the front of the motorcycle on each side of the vertical center line at the same height and shall have a minimum horizontal separation distance (measured from center of lamps) of 16 inches. Minimum edge to edge separation distance between turn signal lamp and head lamp shall be four inches. Rear turn signals shall be red or amber mounted on each side of the vertical center line at the same height and having a minimum horizontal separation distance (measured from center of lamps) of nine inches. All turn signal lamps shall be mounted at a height from the road surface of not less than 15 inches nor more than 83 inches. Turn signal lamps shall flash at a rate of 60 to 120 flashes per minute. The turn signal lamp activating control shall be positioned so as to be operated without removing the hand from the handlebar and shall properly indicate right and left when so switched. Turn signal lamps shall be visible at a distance of 200 feet under normal daylight conditions. Every motorcycle shall be equipped with a device to permit the front and rear directional signals to flash simultaneously if originally equipped by the manufacturer.

That's a bummer, mate!

Still, it looks like a very similar law to what we have here - separate rear indicators required. Our MOT (roadworthiness test) has to be done annually to all motor vehicles 3 or more years old.

Why not get separate LED indicators like I did? The tidied up tail section looks so much better than standard.
