Super Bright LEDs sells a dual function LED brake light blub. It has 6 radial mounted LEDs to light up the license plate.

Corrected the post, removed "flashing"

Doesn't say anything about flashing on brake though.

OK, just installed a LED tail light bulb. Would have gladly paid $10 more for the bike to get a few extra inches wiring. I have small hands and I had a problem getting my fingers in there to release the blub holder.

Ferret, what was the part number of that bulb you got from https://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/moto...led-bulbs/

I suppose I could take mine out and look, but I'd rather have the LED in hand to replace it at the same time.

Thanks!

I think it was 1157 r3w-fl

remember 2 things the light for the lic plate will now be red, not white, and at the rally we found out the red running light is not quite as bright as a std white 1157 bulb running light. It looks bright when it is all by itself, but next to a standard bulb, it is not as bright. Then again it's only $18

Agreed. After following Ferret down and back, I can say that the LED isn't as bright as the regular light in the day, but the quick flashing on brake more than makes up for it. Very attention grabbing.
