Anyone know if it's illegal to have WHITE lights as rear running lights?

Thanks.

Also here in Illinois, I believe. Rear facing running lights red only as I recall.

Same here.
Amber in rear for 'turn only' seems to slide by, because newer bikes & vehicles have 'em.
But white?
No.

Curiosity....dead cat....et cetera, but: whatcha got in mind, big poppa pump?

Planning to convert my rear turn signals from 1156 to 1157 using front turn signals connectors. Wanted to use switchback led's for running/turn light and not too many options for red/amber 1157 switchback led's.

Custom Dynamics.
Motorcycle LED Light Bulbs
Dynamic Clusters.
Also has the white / amber ones for the front.

Gotta pair of each, in the Next Day Off box, under the bed.

Also have a new-in-box spare pr. of chrome Chris Products 8500 light housings, 1157, with Deuce-style lenses, if you decide to change housings.
And....I THINK....a spare pr. of the Chris Products studs, for attachment.
Stud is hollow; wires go thru it.
Neatest way I found.
After Research Overload.

I already have an extra pair of front turn signal housings for my Valkyrie from my rebuild since I had to replace my front. My front signals already have white/amber switchbacks.

Yea, no. Red or amber is all ive ever read in Revised Statutes for many states.

GP Thunder 1157 2057 7528 Switchback Red Amber 60 LED Signal Turning Light Bulbs | eBay
Thanks, I did see that but the following is kind of confusing:

Specification:

  • Dual Beams
  • 12 SMD LEDs up layer ( 6 White and 6 Amber), 48 SMD LEDs down/side layers. (24 Red and 24 Amber)
  • Total 60 SMD LEDs Lights with Wide View Angle for better reflection.
  • SMD/SMT = Surface Mount Devices / Surface Mount Technologies
Package Contents:

  • One Pair 1157 60-LED Bulbs Dual Color (2 bulbs)
*** When the light in on, the white light will turn on. When step on the brake or using turning signal, the amber colors light will be turned on and white light will automatic turned off. Exception with some vehicles, both white / amber light could stay turned on at the same time.



I've sent a message to the seller and waiting for a reply.

I've grown up enough to avoid getting too foolish, but I have pondered super bright rear facing spotlights for tailgaters. It's a good thing that sort of thing in illegal. Probably would have gotten me killed a long time ago. I also gave up on the rocket launcher idea.

From the sound of the description, it's from the Asian market. Maybe they're legal in Beijing?

AMA Rights is my choice of drug for this ;)

No, i think they left in parts of the description from another auction (using the template from the white/amber) and just didnt pay attention. The pics show red/amber clearly.
