Question Integrated turn lights in 900 custom

hi
i have a 09 900 custom and i want to remove the small light above the plate and move the plate higher so i can see the wheel better.

also, i wanna know what are the best ways to integrate the back light with the turn signals/ i know there is the led option. is there any other way? to remove the turn signals and have an alternative??

Something like this would work fine, assuming you are still using bolts to mount the plate:

Does anyone ever feel like if you integrate tailights or turn signals you are less visible? Not sure if it is just me but I really like the front blinkers on my 900 sticking off the front forks. I am also always worried nobody can see me so maybe it is in my head

I'm thinking about trying this option. Due to BC law I have to keep my plate on the back, and this also comes with a license plate light.

there ya go, MissViolet to the rescue. I knew I saw it on eBay somewhere just couldn't remember what the name was.

Although I did see a YouTube vid where that lightbar was not really visible in the daytime. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit:

Radiantz bar but kind of the same

Well those LED's sure look good, really nice way to work the lights into a minimalist look. I do think they sacrifice visibility, especially during the day...they'd probably be brighter than you think at night though. I wouldn't want to give up the visibility for looks...but they're nice!

Kumarr, I did what I called the stage I plate/tag move.

Yes, BC requires the plate on the back, not on the axle, and I also thought the plate hung down way too low in the stock position.

I ended up moving on to the Low & Mean rear LED with plate bracket in the end as the Stage I plate move just wasn't floatin' my boat.
