Is it possible to integrate my rear turn signals into my brake lights? If yes, do you think it will be hard? It is a 2000 model if that helps.

I don't know how much theirs is but you can get an integrator designed to work with trailer lights at Autozone for about ten bucks. It works exactly the same.

Yep, AutoZone, Kragen, whatever - took me about 30-minutes and was cheaper to purchase. Sportbikes.net has a thread w/ diagrams if you need them, you'll have to search, though.

Way cool mod, but beware it's illegal in many states.

i'm running the integrated lights and haven'y had any trouble, but if i could do it again i'd do the mini stalks. more visible

Isn't everything legal in Texas?[:0] just kidding, actually I wonder if it's legal in AZ since I am about to integrate.

I live in Texas and the last two bikes have had integreted rear turn signals. I'm not sure it is legal but the guys at the inspection station passed them both times.

Hi all,
I am new in this board.You can call me 00zx6r. I bought mine used with 4800 miles on it, all stock but I will make some chnage on it. I shaved the tail but still kept the compartment,integrated turn signal lights.Correct me if I am wrong, I bought 2 differents Taillight converter(made by Hoppy) from local PepBoys but it doesn't work (seem to need power direct from battery). Finally, I got the Power Tail light converter and it works.The signal seems to be fast flashing but with my opinion it pays more extension to people.
Have a great long weekend and ride safe!

Just don't forget about the safety aspects. Getting rear ended is one area you can do almost nothing about. The best tragedy is to be seen. This includes the turn signals. For anything over 30 or 40 feet it becomes very difficult or impossible for someone behind you to interpret what they’re seeing, especially when they’re talking on the phone or eating ham and eggs for breakfast. Relying on the taillight to give any kind of meaningful indication of turning intentions is really asking for it. I even installed a system that pulses the taillight on my bike in a progressively faster blinking rate until it remains on after about 5 or 6 seconds. This is a much better idea and looks kinda neat too. I just repaired a ZX-9 that was nailed from the rear. The header pipe wound up sticking straight up along side the fuel tank. We don’t even want to discuss what happened to the rider's right leg. He was stopping for a red light with only one car behind him.
In my opinion this is truly a gadget that deserves closed scrutiny. It works electrically, and I’ve installed a bunch of them but I won’t sell them. Life’s too short and I certainly don't want to take an active hand in getting someone hurt or worse.

That's true Dave and thanks for good advised. I think about that before doing integrated. Today, I have my wife drove behind me with several different distance to see if she can see my rear turn signal also brake and turn signal at the same time. And she told me it looks good but again you have to be careful.In the meant time, I am still looking for the better look for my rear turn signal incase if I want to put it back on.
