'84 CX650E that is evolving into a GL500
That's what I said. But while it might work it wouldn't b legal.
To me that is the biggest issue. Whether or not you get a ticket is small in comparison to being hit by a 3,000+ pound vehicle while on your bike. It's just not safe and hence the regulation. An example of form over function, bad idea all the way around.Lastly, integrated signals in a center brake lamp are difficult for most other motorists to see, and even when seen, it makes your intended direction difficult to determine.
Would still keep turn signals, if I changed them they would be for a dual set also.
Got the idea while following a Harley that had this set up. Was the most visible thing I’ve seen on a bike.
1980’s technology vs. 2020’s
Thanks for the wiring and tech info.The legality is pretty important from a visibility standpoint.
There are many modern production motorcycles/vehicles that do meet legality but are completely not visible.
The brake/tail light is huge
I am replacing stock with a LED bulb
Something I have done with my GL500i & Gl1100i was to replace the 4 factory square side reflectors (2 front on the fairing & 2 rear on the bags) with exact matches that are reflectors with a led inside. I have the front ones wired as parking/marker lights and the rear as signals. It is still legal because of the colors, but now they are lights as well as reflectors!Thanks for the wiring and tech info.
Even if I don’t go through with the idea it’s fun to challenge what can be done.
The idea will expand into something else and who knows maybe ones own concept could be widened once the end result is seen.
