Just my opinion , but that light looks like it should be illuminating a glove box, not protecting your ass from distracted soccer moms,etc.  ;)

            The brake light is plenty bright plus the fact that even if it was a 1,000W laser beam aimed directly into their brains it wouldn't protect you from these assholes who are driving around on cellphones & aren't paying the least attention to what they're driving behind.

Agreed. That certainly makes the case for a smaller tail light, I stand corrected. ;D

Lol ok. Have you taken a look at the size of the tail clusters on modern superbikes? Do that and then get back to me ;)

This tail cluster is huge in comparison :)

And there's the final product  8) the license ate is still huge but what can you do? It's the law.

Just a question @tooseevee. What did you do with the wiring loom? Just solder it all up and hear shrink it? For now I've taken all the connectors and they are cable tied under the rear mudguard but it's not a long term solution. Right now in winter there's no rain here but summer is wet and I can't see that being good for the plugs.

Oh and I'm going to look at getting an LED bulb for this fitting, the standard bulb is "ok" but I would prefer for it to be just a little brighter.

Very sharp!  I'll be ridding myself of the hanging-doghouse on the back soon.  Plan to do it while I have the wheels off to get new tires put on.  You're giving me ideas  8)
