Asking for some help with the rear taillight. Kinda complicated!

Hey Everyone, So i bought this 2004 CBR600rr and the guy before me had an integrated taillight on the back. Got pulled over for it :(. Luckily, he gave me the stock rear end, well the section that bolts on around the exhaust.

My problem is that the wires to the turn signals have been cut.

I would like to put this stock section back on and integrate the turn signals to flash along with keeping the integrated light on and have that still flash as well.

Ive been looking at the wire diagram in the service manual, but really no luck.

Any help you guys can give would be much appreciated. As well as what connectors and resistors i should buy and from where. Im like a blind man in a traffic jam right now

Here is what I have...

will you be putting the stock lights on as well, yes?

what about the front, what's the condition of those? Stock or Aftermarket LED?

The front are flush mount LEDs that are quite nice. I wont be touching those. I just read that the CBR integrated tail light i have is DOT approved. Why are cops saying that the rear blinkers need to be like 9 inches apart?

ah...

If you read closely, they are only talking about the lens, not the integration of signals.

Quote:
Clear Lens Tail Lights are a direct replacement fit to the original stock unit requiring no further modifications. Manufactured products using only high quality materials and assembled using state of the art machinery. Most of our clear tailights are a complete unit, this being the lens and housing unit as one piece. The complete tailight assemblies have all been re-designed to include chroming the inside housing units which makes our products brighter than stock. Re-designed lens pattern to achieve the white lens look and not the glass look. By doing so, you will not be able to see the red bulbs through the lens. Each taillight is then tested for photomety and luminous measurements to ensure optimal light performance. Taillights which have Patent Pending inserts are DOT approved.

well, it sounds like the signals are self regulated, i'm guessing it's internally resisted. i donno what you are going to use for the rear signals, but this is a little complicated. I'm going to recommend that you get LED rear signal stalks instead of installing the OEM lights. i fear that by installing the high draw OEMs that your flash rate will be painfully slow.

an alternative may be to simply get leds installed in your pegs (ala tripage).

a little costly, but looks good.

Would it be legal to do that and also keep the integrated tail lights?

well, aftermarket lighting isn't typically DOT Approved for various reasons. as for having DOT lighting in conjunction with another kind of lighting... i donno, that's a little strange. the CA tail light would still be non DOT conforming installed equipment so i'd imagine that the answer would be no.
