I would probably try one out but on my black 1290 the clear looking lens would look ridiculous I think


Same thing here in California. Signals are meant to be 9 inches separated, or 228mm.

I don't think the clear will look too bad on a black bike and Sully's solution of putting vinyl on the top is pretty good. I'd like to keep the stock rear signals and have the integrated as well. Should be doable with a little wiring work I think.


I think I might just go for something along the lines of this, I want to run the rear turn signals more horizontal along the sides starting from each side of the taillight though>

I just finished installing the Custom LED tail light, to top off a Yoshimura tail tidy, and the KTM bags and hangers. It really makes a very neat and tidy package, which looks pretty nice, I think. All of these items are easy to install, and of very high quality.

Ressurecting an old thread here. Is there any reason why you couldn't install this CustomLED.com Blaster-X taillight but still leave the bike's OEM turn signals connected? I'm just interested in a more robust mounting for the tail light that won't be as likely to fail again. Brighter tail light/brake light is good too but I'd like to preserve the stock turn signals. Any reason that wouldn't work?
Babying your motorcycle for it's resale value is like not having sex with your girlfriend so she'll be fresher for the next guy.

I don't see why you couldn't. You wouldn't be able to plug them in, though, so they wouldn't be functional. I've had mine on for a couple of years now with no issues. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

I haven't received the light yet but it's my understanding that it has 3 connectors; one each for the left/right turn signals and one for the brake/tail light. If that's the case wouldn't the OEM turn signals still be functional if I just left them plugged in and just tucked away the connectors on the new tail light?

Ok - I thought you wanted to use the turn signals in the Custom LED light. Yes, should work.
