Look at that booty. Yea, you’ve clicked on this post because you couldn’t help, but stare at that fine a…

Like I’m the only one who personifies my bike. Yea, ok.

So you’re interested in giving your bike a sleeker look because you’re tired of the ugly fender?

You’ve landed on the right page, but before we dive into the top 3 integrated taillights that will give your bike an aesthetically pleasing look, let’s clear some things up first.

 

Keep in Mind

Before doing any research on which taillight you would like to purchase, by all means, please do your due diligence and find out what your state’s laws are in regards to motorcycle turn signals.

 

Why Do Riders Get Aftermarket Taillights?

  • Cleaner Look: Removing the fender reduces unnecessary weight as well as give your bike an aesthetically pleasing look
  • Added Touch: Choose between clear lens, smoked lens, and with some brands, chromed lens. Some brands even offer a sequential lights feature
  • Brighter Lights: LEDs are brighter and draw less power than the OEM taillights

Besides the common reasons for getting aftermarket taillights, such as removing the fender and creating a sleeker look for your bike, the biggest plus is having brighter lights.

Having brighter lights is key to a rider’s safety. In fact, getting rear-ended by another vehicle is a common accident amongst riders. A majority of rear-ended accidents happen because the driver didn’t see the rider.

 

Pre-Purchase Checklist for Taillights

Any type of modification to your bike needs some kind of pre-purchase checklist. Not having a checklist is like going on a vacation not knowing what the weather is going to be like.

You don’t have to follow this list down to a T, but it would help to narrow your search.

  • Super-Bright LEDs: There’s no better feeling than the peace of mind you’ll have knowing that your taillight lights the entire block. You don’t want to have a dim taillight, especially at night waiting at a stoplight because some drivers can either not see you or mistakenly think that you’re in motion.
  • Plug & Play Install: Changing taillights shouldn’t be labor intensive. With proper instructions from the brand, it should take you no more than 30 minutes to complete.
  • OEM Connectors: With the stock connectors, there’s no need to modify how the plug gets connected.
  • Schemish Lens: Clear or Smoke? What’s your flavor?
  • DOT Compliant: This ensures that the aftermarket part meets all the requirements by the DOT. This, of course, is only necessary if your state requires your motorcycle to go through a safety inspection.
  • Built-In Resistors/Relays: This only matters if you want to moderate the speed of the blinks in the turn signals.

When You Know, You Know

As you navigate through different brands of integrated taillights, you’ll find that the product itself for a specific brand will come in different shapes and designs. For example, a Yamaha R1’s taillight will look different than an BMW S1000RR’s taillight even though they share the same product name.

Might seem like a no-brainer on the design part, but your focus should be on the actual features and getting the best deal. This why I went with the integrated taillights from TST Industries for both my 2014 Yamaha R6 and 2004 Honda CBR1000RR.

Although having a sequential feature on the TST Industries’ taillight would’ve been a bonus, when it came down to it, price, quality, and installation were on point.
