TST Integrated Tail Light UK

Hi All,

Link to the item in question below

https://tstindustries.com/TST-LED-In...2007-2012.html


I'm new to the site and forum's so if this is somewhere else or in the wrong area please point me in the right direction.

I have a question about the TST Integrated Tail light, all questions based on the UK.

After watching the video on how to install I'm happy enough that even with my limited knowledge that I could install it.

Question 1
It shows plug and play for the North America bikes how would this work with UK bikes, I believe we have 4 pins not 2 when connecting the electrics, does anyone know the extra steps for us to install and if they can be carried out with little knowledge.

Question 2
Are they legal or more importantly will the bike fail an MOT due to this set up. Last thing I want to do is change this over ever 12 months for the MOT and then change back.

All info is much appreciated.

Regards

Don

I'm sure TST can make you something to make it work for your bike.

About your MOT, I hope another member from the UK can help with that. Sorry I can't help

Are we there yet?!

I've always been of the opinion that this would fail the MOT, but i'm not entirely sure why.
I believe something due to the indicators and rear light needing to be separate and not so close together?

Work's quiet, so i Googled....

Check out this MOT check guide. Section 1 is on lights.
https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...lasses-1-2.pdf

By my interpretation of the guide, I think it could fail on:
- the rear position lamp showing a light other than RED to the rear.
- the illumination of the stop lamp being affected by the operation of another lamp.


But why not go to your usual MOT garage, ask the bike guy for a spare minute and show him the link video. Ask if the light would pass.
Can't get any more of a black or white answer than asking the tester directly.

Not sure regarding MOT, however I know here in Australia the indicators have to be minimum 180mm apart I believe from brake light. Integrated is illegal here.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

I've had an integrated tail light for 2 years now (i.e. two mots) and the first year it whizzed straight through, whereas this year the guy was a right bitch about it and he made a point of fitting some normal aftermarket indicators before he put it through 🙄

So TECHNICALLY, no they're not legal, but I've never had any problems with the law regarding mine.

Regarding plug and play, mine's not a TST one, but mine came with plugs on all the ends that required them, but they didn't fit the plugs on the bike, so I had to put some crimps on mine. I can send you a picture of how mine's wired up if you like, but it's pretty self explanatory.

Hope that helps!

And I'm in the UK, Bournemouth.

Hello guys, I have just discovered this integrated rear light unit for the 07+ RR. I can't seem to find where to buy it in the UK.
Chesh, where did you buy your one from?

Thanks

I bought straight from Tripage and TST.

If you can wait a little longer, I'll be selling an IT (either Tripage or TST) I ordered one myself from Tripage, and in the meantime, my wife ordered me one from TST as a present. :P
I'm in Belgium, and since you guys are still in the EU (for now), shipping should be cheap

US = Perfectly Legal
AU = Illegal due to spacing
EU = Illegal due to multiple lights in one lamp setting (must be separated)

Just pass it through MOT and swap the tail light in.

Let me know a price Nuithari, I could be interested. I'm off to the Nurburgring soon so I could drop it on the way ;)

Thanks for the info 08rrJunkie, just passed mot, but if required I would swap the standard unit back.

If I ordered one from TST, Would I have to pay import tax? And does it take a while to get here from the States.
