Nice. I've pondered doing the same but was worried about not been seen from the rear, especially when braking & indicating to turn.

Ride safe.

Thats is a nice mod! Ellie has a similar set up on her bike & its actually much clearer than the original set up, The brake light goes out on the one half thats indicating so no worries great

Wow, that is pretty swish.

I agree with the comments about visibility when both indicating and braking so I think I'd keep a pair of mini blinkers, but as a flush-fit tail light it looks awesome Smile

To be honest, the wife has followed me a few times (in the car) and say's it's actually MORE visible due to the scrolling. The glare on the video doesn't help give the right impression. The triple flash on braking is nice too.

These are the Guides I used to do the Mod:

Tail Light Tuck Mod

Pictures to go with the above Guide.

600RR Tail Light fitting Guide.

Motodynamic website, where I got the Tail light from. Great price, great delivery, great service all round. As far as I know, they are the only ones that do the one with the built in Indicators and Triple Flash circuitry. You can get plain LED ones from other retailers but I cant vouch for the quality or service.

This site is a great resource for any guides and Mods.

Hope this all helps.
