I've heard that one can shit-can the god awful ugly DOT tail light assembly in lieu of one of the much cooler GS/SS/GL/etc. styles. Is this possible? Do these units have license plate illumination? Does the swap either leave visible existing mounting holes or require new?
So many questions...
PS: Coming up in a few weeks at the Gasthoff/Mario's in Nordeast:
yes. it is possible to ditch the red-lunchbox tail light.
I bought a bajaj "GS" style ass'y from ASC (i think). It was only about $35. The holes don't match up, but I don't see the old ones. It's all still beneath the light.
as far as licensce plate illumination, just replace the tail light bulb with a 10W... probably not DOT approved, but it's brighter and you can still see the brake light just fine.
-oh yeah, be sure not to install the 6v bulbs they send you for a 12v system...i would imagine they would blow pretty fast.
