Tired of that ugly taillight? Want to save you 100 bucks?

Recommended Posts

Ok I didn't think anything of this getho crapy atempt to mess with my taillight. But some people seen some pictures and wanted me to show how I did it. I seen tail light mods but I havent seen one as far as mine and I'm sure it has been done I just couldnt find the post.

I took the plate bracket off and relocated it as high as it could go and cut every things under and around it off.

I took that stem in between the tail light and the drop down black fender off. It was a bitch I cut that thing off with a saw.

I had to turn the taillight upside down so that the back of the light would fit in the fender. I then turned the lens upside down so that the plate light was facing down. I then mounted the taillight directly to the fender, I used the bolts from the stem. I had to use a sealer the gasket didn't work too well upside down. I ride tough and in water and havent blew a buld yet.

It's still ugly and I didnt sand or cut it nice because It was a short fix on impulse but if you like it better than stock here it is.

The second link is a thread on TT. If you can see photos in other threads, you should be able to see them there?

Thanks for the info. I've thought about doing the same thing till I can justify the funds for an "accessory" such as a different tail light. Nice to see how you got it done.

Thanks! :)

I got my edge tail light and led signals for less than $100 shipped. Your's doesn't look bad but the edge matches the rear fender contour perfectly.

Maybe I'm missing something but on a dirt bike isn't cutting off or removing the fender going to allow more mud to spray up your back?
