LED Tail/Brake Light Install

I hope you have better luck with Forest than I do, emailed him weeks ago and still not even a single reply.

Poor show all round :blah:

Im thinking you must of sent it to the wrong email cause i didnt take long for him to reply to my email and send me the part and im from Australia :thumbsup:

Definitely try again before bitching about him :ride:

Just a suggestion, you have the part number, and the manufacturer, it took me about 15 minutes to find this page:

http://www.drcproducts.com/dealer/index.html

And to see that along with my local distributor I found yours:

http://www.madison.co.uk/

Ooh looky they even have a "find a dealer" page:

http://www.madison.co.uk/dealerlocation.aspx?vertical=

Let us know if that works???

I'll be doing this shortly I hope it works as good as it says it does B). Cheers to the OP and the rest of the thread for all the helpful information. Can anyone please confirm or deny that the D45-19-011 has white/clear LEDs to throw light on the licence plate?

Cheers,

Tony

Hi Tony,

I have already been down the links you have posted above some time back, they are now telling me it's not available within the UK....sucks.

Never seen 1 on fleabay either :smirk:.

Have you actually tried ordering one through the site as on the postage page you can select United Kingdom?

I recently bought an LED tail/brake light...

The setup is clean and everything fits inside the existing lens.

OK, so I'm doubling up on posting, but here goes anyway. I have this light on the back of my 600R:

So if I'm looking at fitting one of these LED inner kits will I have to butcher the bottom metal plate because that's what the lens mounts to?

I'll have to have the two posts that go through the fender and the four holes for the screws to mount the lens. Does this sound like too much of a PITA to make work? My big white pig is smashing dual filament globes like there's no tomorrow.

Does the 650 lens mount straight to the fender making this mod easier on the 650?

Cheers.

Pretty much yes, mine doesnt have that plate, fullstop.

Just buy the led and make it fit all you will probably need is two screws holes and maybe one for the wire :thumbsup:

Just got off the phone with Forrest, good guy!

Part # D45-19-011

I am so tired of replacing bulbs on my xr650r.....and bulbs that you can barly see unless it is pitch dark.

Can't wait to receive this little guy and get it installed.

We know the part number just seem unable to get them over in the UK :eek:

Love mine, the brake light is REALLY bright, install was a snap on the Xr650r.

http://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/shop/36/24/index.shtml

and something not mentioned about this product on this thread is that it will run on AC or DC current. I've been running my turn signals and tail light on a small 1.2aH rechargeable battery. And running the headlight on the stock ac output. This way my headlight doesn't dim any with the turn signals/taillight.

great little gizmo/farkle and would recommend it to anyone not wanting a license plate/brake light fender extension.

I am running the stock XR650R stator without a battery source. With the 2 parts below; Will I have a fully functioning "brake light" and not just a brighter "running" light?

I just want to be sure before I purchase.

Thanks again for the help.
