2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

I have a 2003 954 and I was wondering if it is possible to remove the rear signal lights and wire the signaling into the break light. I noticed the break light is actually like 6 or 8 small bulbs in the tail. So has anyone or does anyone know if it is possible to wire the signaling to the 2 outside bulbs? Anyone done this or have instructions to something similar?

Thanks, Hellfire666

Re: 2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

These guys can retrofit your rear taillight to do it...FlashAlert. There's another company that has a unit for the 954...CustomLED

If you are an EE you might be able to do it. Thats an LED setup you have, not bulbs so it's not just a few wires to be soldered. Besides, those integrators are just plain confusing to cagers and are next to impossible to tell whats going on.

Peter, the CustomLED setup looks pretty good. Any owner experience out there to confirm quality/fit/etc? Also, what recommendations do you all have out there for rear fender eliminators for the 954RR, especially considering use of the CustomLED kit?

Re: 2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

I have a new tail light from clear alternatives which has the blinkers integrated into it. They are super bright and I had no problem installing it. I highly reccomend the product. I left the stock undertray on and it looks amazingly good, only cost me $85.00.

Re: 2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

I don't think there's enough LED's in the rear brake light to give the motorists behind you a clear view of what you're intending to do. I personally would switch the outside leds' to amber but that would leave only 1 led per blinker plus 6 for the brake and running light. I would say keep the lights stock and try to add extra amber bulbs into the setup. i don't have the bike so i'm not sure how.

Exactly!

Try these short stalks with LED's so people will actually know what blinking lights mean instead of a bunch of weird lights in a 5inch area

Re: 2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

I never really liked integrators or even the undertails with the built in directionals. it puts everything too close together. I like the blinkers being out away from the tail light so it makes it easier to see. I have my rear directionals set up as running lights also so they are constantly on, makes me feel like its easier for people behind me to know right away which direction I'm going when I turn the blinker on.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: 2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

The tail intergrator has more LED's in it then stock......they put in Amber LED along with red LED's for your brake lights....I could take a video of them with my digital camera and email to anyone who is [email protected]
Anyway everyone has there own opinion...I don't like the bulky stock signals on the back of the bike.....

Well, the picture looks great, but no info. Which ones are these, and where did you get yours?

Re: 2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

I have one of the custom led models w/ an undertail...

Nothing beats stalk type signals for visability... but as said, they so big and ugly

They are modded by me. They are these Signals with a 30 LED board grafted into it. I got the LED boards from eBay. They are just one of the 1156 plug in types that I disassembled. The short stalks are DOT legal, they have the right printing on the lens to pass inspection. The LED board is held in place by a large dollop of clear silicone caulk.

Re: 2003 954 Custom rear signaling?

I have a 2003 954 too. I will be receiving a kit this week or so to install the rear signals in the break to remove the tail. I also want to remove the front signal which stick out far on the side for universal that don't. Did someone did this ont their bike? Thanks.
