Cleaned up my taillight assembly

Cleaned the clunky tail light and am very pleased with light kit i got from motorcyclemods. Now for my new turn signals to get here!

Looks good! I've always wondered why Honda put those big square lunch box looking tail lights on them. The cats eye makes it looks so much better!

I know they look cool but for my peace of mind I want as many lights back there as possible to get people's attention which is getting harder and harder today.

Although the light is smaller, I'm willing to bet the LED is more visible than the filament bulb it replaced.

Looks really nice! Although I'd try something to clean up your license plate. Looks like some painted it black, and didn't do a good job either.


You are never too old to have a happy childhood....I'm still trying.

I think we had this discussion before about blacking our our license plates when we post pictures. But all day long on the road, thousands of eyes see our plate in public.
Funny ain't it ? That is another why is it .

I'm lost. You mean you DON'T blackout your actual license plate? I've been doing it wrong this entire time? No wonder that cop was so annoyed with my explanation!
