I Hope someone has experience with these kind of LED tail lights.

I ordered this LED tail light with integrated turn signals ..but it comes without wiring instructions...does anyone know what color wires to use.

taillight

I have the same tail light but it didnt come with those white block things... what are those?

Just a lil help, when I did this on my CBR1100XX I just started touching wires together to see what works, use a battery like a 9 volt

that can damage leds if the reverse voltage is higher then what is allowed.

ok so my light didnt come with them... how do they hook up where do they go.... you say it CAN damage the LED's but how will you know?
it would depend on whether the max for the reverse voltage rating is surpassed by the voltage you connect. if they are damaged you will know because the led will blow and they will not work at all.

Hope this helps?

I don't know if i can shed any light but i bought the exact tail light off of e-bay almost three years ago and it still works...well...some of it,anyway?
Mine had the white LEDs across the bottom for the plate light up but after about a year,it went out.The tail light still goes strong though.I hate that i just caught this thread because i JUST threw the instructions away when cleaning out my closet!!! I am going to do my own custom tail light and am gonna do away with the assy i have now.I CAN tell you that the 2 white boxes are for the turn signals to keep them from blinking fast.However;Be careful as to what kind of front signals you use because when i took my stock ones off,they started doing the fast blink dance.Hope this helps a lil??? Good luck and once you get it going,you'll like it!

It IS a nice "cheap" upgrade to the brake system but just keep an eye open as mine shorts out from time to time?That's why i am going to make my own set-up and the way i wanna do it should be REALLY sweet!!!
