Breakout Tail light

First let me say I love my breakout. With that said, what were they thinking with the dumb little reflector over that massive and sexy rear tire? They had the opportunity to do something very cool in that space - perhaps something like they have on the v rod. At a minimum they could have put a reflector that runs from one side of the fender to the other instead of something that looks like it came from Pep Boys.

I took the reflector off the other day because it bugged me. I saw a light kit online that is thin and follows the shape of the fender. It was a combo brake and turn signal. I forgot to save the web site and have to find it again.

I was so thinking the same thing about wanting a combo tail light turn signal as opposed to what they put on that fender.

Just an FYI. A guy on another forum installed this on his Breakout and found the light did not work as a run, turn, break. After calling the company they had to send him another set of wiring instructions and a relay, based on what he said. I have not yet heard if that fixed the issue.

I think the other company was chromeglo... not sure, but one of them does have turn/brake/running capability

Chrome Glow does have an additional kit to convert to turn/break and run. Thinking about buying that one. I wish HD had a light similar to the WG chopped fender light that fits the BO fender.

I make a lot of custom fenders for Warriors and use Radiantz products. You could do this one or two ways. You can use either their z flex tube with 100LEDS. you would just have to split the LEDS into two sections, add a dual element circuit as well as a drugz circuit for integrated flashers and you are good to go. Looking at around $60 for the Zflex tube , $5 for the dual element circuit and $20 for the integrated flashers (drugz) so a total of $85 plus a bit of wiring. You could also use sidewinderz. two 24 LED strips $25, a drugz $20 and a dual element circuit $5 for a total of $50. it is easy to do yourself
