piteck undertail review *pics

so i finaly put this undertail on my bike after having it at my parents house for the last 4 months..my dad has alot more tools then I do.. well to start off the review, it was a HUGE pain in the ass taking both my dad and I at least 3 hours to put this thing on.. also the directions are really bad. the leds in the lights arent that bright and its all around just not that great. it doesn't really fit flush on the end. i'm going to get some kid of molding or make my own molding to put around it to fill in the gap. but on the plus its looks pretty good, you cant really see the gaps inless your looking for them, the wiring was pretty simple to figuar out, and it cost about half as much as a hotbodies undertail 125$ shipped. althought it looks like it cost about 15$ to make... but then again so do the fairings..

for the licence plate bracket we used the 2 pices used in keeping the stock tailight screwed in and turned them upright drilled threw the new undertail put the bolts threw tigtened them and I think it turned out quite well. also the light from the running lights makes for a decent licence plate light. we did have to modifie the licence plate a bit though and i'm sure thats a big no no and is illegal.

Re: piteck undertail review *pics

Looks good. I'd ride the bike some and see if the gap disappears after the parts get seated better. The Hotbodies I put on my bike was also a bitch to install...

Re: piteck undertail review *pics

I had one on my bike. Wasnt too bad to install but the LEDs were very dim. ONe nice 12 Oclock later and Instead of repairing it I replaced it with a different one off Ebay. IT cost $130 Shipped Looked rally nice and the LED's were way brighter. Very happy and lookes very good Will post pics next sunny day I can take a good pic.

Check your local codes, each state is different.

Re: piteck undertail review *pics

It looks good in the pics.

If you're not satisfied with the LED's I would see about getting a different set of tail lights to fit.

Then again, you may be able to get in touch with the manufacturer and get something going.

Re: piteck undertail review *pics

you can get an led strip that sticks to your licence plate. 1/4 left blink. 1/2 brake light 1/4 right blink.. i think i will pick up somthing like that... its not so dim you cant see it but its not near as bright as the stock tail light. and the brake lights look more pink then red.
