ST1300 - 3rd LED Brake Light
 
ST1300 - 3rd Brake Light

I have a 2004 ST1300 and was really interested in finding a 3rd brake light for the bike. After a month of searching and not finding hardly anything at all let alone a 3rd brake light made for the ST1300 I decided to make my own.

It goes under the rear grab bar cover, it's stealthy and doesn't interfere with the use of the luggage rack. It turned out so well I had to make a second one for a friend.

It looks very nice.

Unfortunately, it would not work on my bike as my Hondaline Trunk would cover it up.

You could have a look at the Admore Lights or the Whelen LEDs. Both of those companies make some excellent kits for our bikes with numerous options.

Although, after looking at your light, I think that is pretty damn cool! I am impressed.

Nice, does the cover still sit flat where it mounts? or are you lifting it a bit?

My question as well. I am sorely tempted by this thing.

The LED aray raises the Grab Bar Cover by about 3/16" not even enough to really notice unless you are looking for it...or it's flashing at you...:)

BTW it still sits level front to back and side to site as the kits I am putting together include rubber spacers to maintain level

I read your thread on "The Other Forum" as well. I think this is a really slick idea. I find myself tempted. For sure I wish you luck with this project.

I've seen Hyper-Lights installed under the rail to good effect too. And they can be seen even if you do have a Trunk installed on top.

I like the looks of this installation over the Hyper-Lights, though.

Any issue with fitment of the Honda or Givi trunk bracket?
