Did the same for my bike. The stock housing sucks. Plastic reflector, plastic bulb socket, loose connections. I found many times that I didn't have one of the filaments working just from loose connections. Nice and safe.....
So, I bought the $30-ish truck and/or trailer LED setup from Napa. It took some fabrication work to make a mount, but it's much more reliable and visible. I have the stocker if I should ever want to go back to stock, but why?

I had a very similiar experience.
A HD rider pulled into a gas station behind me and asked what the tail light was that i was running because; as he put it, "man that thing is bright!".
Works for me... or at least for the last 15K miles.
