Hello again.

I am looking to mod my brake light and possibly turn signals, and am hoping some of you can offer some insight. I need to mod the brake light because I've built my own luggage rack that slopes down at an angle from the handrail where the stock sissy bar used to slip in and bolt to it. The luggage rack slopes at such an angle that the brake light can not be attached- there is only 3 inches from the bottom of the luggage rack and the top of the license plate light.

Is there a tail light that can mount closer to flush on the fender? Or perhaps a license plate bracket which also contains a brake light and possibly turn signals? Any suggestions for slimming this area down?

I will post some pix once I get some time but I've been stretched really thin lately. Any input you might have would be appreciated.

Find a tail light assembly from a sportster. The brake light, blinkers, plate light, and plate hanger all in one. You will have to lengthen the wires.

LoLz.. My lady hasn't taken over the wallet. It's more that I've been complaining at her for shopping so much lately so whenever I buy ANYTHING she tries to jump on my case. It's ok though. I think I got it under control. I just lock her in the closet when she gets too mouthy! :beerchug:

Check out Hyperlites. I discovered them via Tiki's review of the EC turn signal conversion kit. He's got a nice video of them in action in that thread. The S16 with running/brake would make a nice taillight, and it's only $74, including a modulator if you're into that. The only possible issue I see is that it might be a bit small as your main taillight. You might want to consider multiple Hyperlites to give you satisfactory surface area and layout (like adding the small universal kit on the plate bracket).
