Who Wants an integrated tail light by Custom LED?

Postby Growler48 » Wed Dec 09, 2015 11:48 pm

I'm resurrecting an old thread from last December http://superduke.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=24398 and creating a new poll. I really want one of these for my Super Duke to clean up the back end, but the company needs at least 50 pre-orders of $140 each. It would be for a Blaster-X tail light. Here's a link to their website: http://www.customled.com. I've been in touch with the owner and here is what he said:

"We have done tail lights before on a group-buy basis, where we collect pre-orders to help fund the project. Something like $140 each with a minimum of 50 people with a 1 month window. If we don't reach 50 in one month, the project is scrapped and money is returned. If we do reach 50, we will start the design, which can take up to 6 months in some instances. I will also need an OEM tail light to prototype off of."

Let me know what you think. I'd be happy to send any questions you may have to the owner. I can provide the tail light for the prototype.

Just found out that someone would have to donate an old tail light, with the expectation that you won't be getting it back. Does anyone have one they can donate?

We have someone who is willing to donate an old tail light. All we need now is more people to commit to buy. Please pass this on to any Super Duke owner that might be interested! Thanks!

We got them to make one for the Ducati Multistrada 1200 back around 2012-2013 and the final product turned out great. Once they had enough interest the final product was developed quickly and it was relatively inexpensive (~$150).

I was involved in the multistrada group buy and they are very nice tail lights, bright and a real attention getter when you brake.

If you vote "Yes", please make a post stating that you want one so that I have your username and can contact you if this project gets approved.

Just wanted to give everyone an update. I've been working with the owner of Custom LED to provide info, documentation, answer questions, etc., as he's trying to figure out what it would take to make an integrated tail light for the Super Duke. We have't gotten a lot of interest in this project, but he's still leaning strongly toward moving forward anyway. I'm not sure what else he needs, but once he makes a decision, I'll let everyone know.

I just clicked on the link and they are actually advertising a product for the 1290 although it says they are out of stock. Looks promising considering an OEM tail is around $400.00 Australian.

Just got off the phone with John at customled.com and he was telling me the project has been green-lighted! He also said that it would be approximately 2-4 months before a production version would be available.

That's great! I knew he was leaning very heavily toward going for it. Can't wait to get this and clean up the tail of my bike!

I'm interested, I bought a fire 2A4 (French website) € 120 thrown in the trash, does not work, error-dash, especially not to buy.

No. The owner said it will take a few months before a prototype will be ready.
