Question V2K License Light/Tail Light Replacement LED ?

Hey folks my '09 V2KLT blew the license plate light.
Is it a PITA to change ?
Do you have to take the tail light off from under the fender ?
Are there LED's available to replace the license & tail/brake light ?

thanks,
JJ

My honest answer?

If your not using bags, remove the license plate from the rear fender. It just flat out looks goofy up there.


Kuryakn makes a side mounted one.

That's what I'm using here, it has built in LED lights for it.



but.. they also make ones that go on the back of the fender, which are curved and fit the fender, etc.

No, not a pita to change but yes you do have to take the whole assembly off. Three nuts in the fender and the assembly pulls off the back. It does come in LED readily available at most auto parts stores. Just a push in bulb but read the package to make sure what color they are since they're all clear when not lit up.

Gotta carry my stuff.
Not crazy about these bags but they'll have to do.
I agree though that the plate is where my rack should actually be. Oh well.

thanks,
JJ

I'd like to find the bulb #'s before I take the light off the bike.
I would probably change the brake/tail to LED as well.

thanks,
John

Probably (some help, huh?)
You might check superbrightleds.com also. They have some cross-referencing.
I found a tail light replacement that looks good and bright - and expensive. Haven't yet tried it.

Hand space is tight under fender, I took some weight off rear suspension by Using my car jack while bike was on sidestand, just enough to get hand in there, leave her in gear though, easy after that.
