    I was looking for some extra brake lights in the rear and came across these. Install was pretty simple and they work - great during the day and bitching at night. Brighter than the stock turning signals. Tried to do this with a picture - no dice so you guys are stuck with a movie.

    Where do I get them?
    What do they cost?
    How long to install?
    Plug and Play? Or do you have to tap or cut wires?

    I got them at F800depot.com - they are are pricey. Install on the front is one screw and removing the old reflector. Rear is the same, however if you have a luggage rack, you will probably have to remove it to get to the connector for the tail light, it's one extra wire from each rear turning signal into the center where the tail light is.

    I stuck both wires through the stalks and soldered them together and then crimped a spade connector on the splice and used it to connect to a tap to the bikes tail/brake light wire.

    PS - the instructions, translated from German, suck.

    Linky - where I bought them
