What about using a stock style integrated blinker setup, in smoke color. When it gets cut and installed upside down, just reverse the turn signal connections. This way you get to have a brake and signal setup that seems to fit tighter than 03-06 tail light.

Just saw the sequential. Looks awesome. I just wish they didn't have the gap, only thing stopping me from buying it. Like how the TST fits perfect, but at a price.

Wow this is great. I'm really looking to trash my stock setup... So ugly.

Question is, is it better to use the stock light, or buy an 03'-06' tail light?

I read through the whole post and not really sure which way to go.

(can't see pictures at work) kinda makes it difficult...

Use the stock light and trim it down like shown in this write-up. Putting an 03/06 light in there is a different project.

I did it on mine. But I also didn't drill into my airbox to make a crooked license plate. I custom fabricated a bracket that mounted in place of the old brake light fender monstrosity. I can take some closer pictures of the bracket if anyone is interested. That way I could mount the turn signals so they're visible

Here's my finished product....

My light has been sitting on my exhaust for over a year. Hasn't melted one bit. Carbon fiber doesn't even get hot on the outside. It'll be fine.

07+ oem taillight retrofit

Just finished this mod and I love it...
It was not as easy as I thought, but its definitely worth the trouble. Taillight looks good and most importantly - functions well above my expectations. Its bright and very easy to see. Total time: 2.5 hours

This really should be a sticky. With as many questions brought up daily about tail light alternatives, this is an awesome DIY and money saver.

Just done this

As I'm a right tight git I loved this idea and had to give it a go. Not cost me a penny so far as I've kept the original indicators and got my brother in law to make me a number plate holder. I will buy a number plate lamp when I get round to it but I rarely go out at night so in no rush. A smaller number plate is on order, going for a 7"x5", any smaller and the filth will be stopping me all the time.
Had to make a couple of brackets to lower the can as it pushing the light up and stopping me getting the seat on.

DIY Cheap 03-06 style taillight on 07+ bikes. Final Version

I just made a couple of simple stainless steel brackets about 1 inch long and got a piece of stainless tube to slide the bolt through, you can just make them out on my 2nd pic

Looks like an awesome DIY project. So can I use my stock 08' brake lamp instead of 03-06 for this too?
