KLR 650 LED Tail Light!

This is the most important piece of equipment you can buy for your KLR 650!

Brake! LED taillights are brighter and more visible than traditional incandescent lights. Simply put, incandescent bulbs produce more-or-less full spectrum light (and a lot of heat) and filter out everything but red light through a colored lens. LEDs, on the other hand, produce a saturated, wavelength-specific light—in this case deep, intense red—without any heat or wasted light energy. This is why LEDs require far less power to produce light of equivalent brightness.

:) To further enhance visibility, the brake light :o strobes ;) for several seconds when the brake is applied, and then stays on like a regular brake light. It practically screams “Hey! I’m stopping! Back off!” Install a Brake! LED taillight and watch people stop ten feet farther behind you at the next traffic light. :D

Installation is a snap! Our KLR 650 LED conversion kit fits your existing taillight housing without any cutting or permanent modifications. You don’t even need to snip any wires; it simply plugs into the existing light bulb socket. Not only that, but you’ll never have to change a light bulb again. The LEDs we use are designed specifically for the automotive industry, and are rated to last over 100,000 hours without any visible degradation of light output. That’s like leaving your bike running non-stop for over 11 years. But that wasn’t good enough for us, so we designed the Brake! module to employ pulse-width modulation, meaning the LEDs are only lit 40% of the time in running light mode. So now you can leave your bike running continuously for 17 years, if you like.

Low power consumption!

Brake! LED taillights consume a miniscule 0.6 Watts in running light mode and 4 Watts with the brake applied. Compare this to the standard 5 Watt/21 Watt 1157 incandescent bulb. Some bikes even use two of those power-hungry bulbs—that’s 10/42 Watts!

This reduced power requirement eases the burden on your bike’s electrical system, which is important if you’re using additional electrical accessories like heated vests or our heated handgrips. Many motorcycles (particularly of the dual-sport variety) have very little electrical power to spare in the first place, so what better way to reduce power consumption than with a brighter, more durable and less power-hungry LED taillight?

Does your headlight dim when you apply the brakes? Old, damaged and/or corroded wiring is not uncommon on motorcycles. The increased resistance that results means there is a lower voltage (below 12V) reaching lighting devices. The Brake! LED taillight has its own voltage regulation, and can operate on supplies as low as 9 volts without any reduction in light output. And its low wattage leaves more power for the headlight.

I don't know if this is the correct forum for a Dual-star ad. Unless you were just posting the info because you have one, but it would be a more convincing opinion if it was in your own words instead of mostly copying the ad on the DUal-Star website.

That said, I had one on my KLR650 and though expensive I thought it was worth it. You can turn off the flash-on-braking feature with a dip switch on the board.

It was brighter than the stock incandescent bulb, but the one feature I liked best was it seemed nearly immune to vibration when mounted according to the instructions. I got pulled over by a NJ state trooper one night because my old tail light had burned out and I was invisible from behind. I got the LED bulb after that. This isn't one of those pop-in "1157" led replacement bulbs, it's a circuit board that fits the entire width of the reflector with a large array of LEDs. Bright and viewable from a wide angle behind the bike. I really hammered the bike offroad for a year and a half, never had any trouble with it.

Running draw reduced by 4w doesn't seem like much but if you replace the three instrument lights with white LEDs also, you'll free up a total of 28 watts, which is a set of electric gloves or grip wraps.

Hi Guys,

Just thought I throw in my tuppney bit!!!

Ebay has a proliferation of led tails lights (I have a couple on my bike) - but now there's a flashing version too for around £6GBP ($12USD).

Cheaper & easier to replace if necessary!

Cheos!
