is there a way?

So this happened (i knew it was going to) and was wondering if there is a way to convert my OEM tail light into an integrated break/turn signals. I dont think there is a kit for my bike that i can just buy, so i was thinking maybe someone could modify my original.

I have something like this mounted on the back of my tard. You would have to make a bracket for it though.

I can make you a bracket for it , let me take a look at it and i believe they sell sheets of thin metal or aluminum that we can drill holes in and make it work

You can get a light bar like that where the holes are spaced to match the holes on the license plate. Keep your stock tail/brake light, and mount this one as an additional brake/tail and added turn.

These aren't exactly what I've had before, but the closest thing a quick search turns up

This is how mine is setup. Looks clean. You have to tear all of that other garbage out of there though. There was a guy who made custom brackets for this setup on mine but it can't be too hard.

Signals are for the gays. Just get rid of them

Ive seen ppl run flush mounts right where the signals come out of the stock location. Didnt look too bad.
