    Would any of you guys know who makes this taillight or one similar. I love the clean look of it, it looks like he chopped the old plastic back and bolted the tail light up.

    I've been looking for a fender eliminator for these bikes for awhile. This one was definitely just cut. There are some other pics you will find around that look like kits, but they are older and no one had an answer for where it came from. I've emailed popular companies that make fender eliminators here in the US and in the UK. They have them for the SM, but not ADV. I asked about fit, and I guess the SM's back end is completely different than the ADV. :cry

    If you find anything that I missed, let me know :thumb

    yea i had seen that one which looks like a pretty slick light with the turn signals but looks about the same size as oem, id like to slim the light down hopefully without compromising brightness, i wish dominiks3 was still around the forum so i could ask him its his bike in the picture.

    Hey guys. Yeah lurking is my past time. Doesn't cost that much. Anyways I looked into those LED Rear Tails Lights and will hear back from them here soon. I am sure it won't be a problem getting those Lights on board and then of course like we always always try to do is price match for you. I work hard for my money and why blow it at MSRP if the manufacturer gives the OK for anyone to reduce the price within reason. I will drop in again when they have contact us and I have both more info for you as well as ETA's. If you get it now it won't break our hearts we understand. Why do you think we got into the motorcycle business anyways. Play with toys all day.

    How much dirt and mud gets thrown up without that fender on there? I am always surprised by how much ends up on my top box with the stock one. I would imagine that it would be awful without it.

    Well this is what I have found from just browsing in case some of you are interested in cleaning up your tails. Havent found the exact match, but im beginning to wonder if it is from another ktm model which would make sense

    looks like you could rig something as far as attaching it

    Have you looked at the lights from Skene Design?
    http://www.lights.skenedesign.com/

    They have a lot of different light setups for bikes with some additional controllers that can control a specific flash rate and reduce voltage to fog lights for normal running. Once high beam is turned on the fog lights would get 100% power.
