LED Tail Light

Does Anybody know if you can get an LED for the Tail/Brake light using the existing push type configuration that the bike has?

You mean LED direct plug and play "bulb" in the standard socket?
If so, yes, super common

The standard bulb is a 7443
The ORSAM ZEVO series is the brightest longest lasting LED on the market and it is the proper more efficient transmitting red wave length LED for use behind red colored lens



Dont use ebay cheap ones.
For one, they tend to not stay tight in the sockets for long in high vibrations.
2nd, they will be white light emitters, which has to be filtered and changed to red by way of the red lens, you loose brightness that way.
3rd, they do not seem to last as long, be it components used or construction.

Thank you Sir
I have just ordered a pair from Amazon for $20.00 with free shipping.

On another subject, can you still get the Air / Mix thumb screws that someone had made up to replicate the standard impossible ones that you cannot adjust. I have made some carburetor upgrades with the stage 2 cams and High compression pistons and need to get a better adjustment on these mixture screws.

Talk to the Forum later

Let us know if you find them brighter than stock. While some Amazon reviews say they are bright, it seems a number of them complain that they are no brighter than the bulbs they replaced.

The ORSAM ZEVO series 7443R is brighter then a standard 7443 incandescent bulb at the stock 12.X volts, and still brighter than a properly fixed VTR at 14.x volts

Wow Erik you are right, here's the video proof. I am going racing but when I get back I am getting these bulbs in every socket of the bike.
