Tail light

Anyone suggest a led taillight for a 99 400ex tired of replacing bulbs? There must be a leak and then the bulb gets wet. I Can modify to install it.

I know the new 400ex tail lights are LED’s I wonder if it would be a stock fit? I have also wondered if a 450r tail light would work on mine since I recently cracked the lens it when I 12 o’clocked it. Try bikebandit.com.

Auto zone has leds that are in a strip. They work nicely, and are very bright. My mom's Tahoe tail light went out and we used that to make new light.

It's all fun and games till someone says " watch this " then its hilarious.

I make the big bores wish the could be me!!!!!!

Have you checked feeBay for a used later model led tail light? You can silicone the lens to the housing after you replace the bulb with an led bulb to seal it against any future moisture intrusion,far cheaper to put an led bulb in,and seal your stock housing than to replace the whole assembly with an led tail light that can get broke very easily....I'm just cheap that way...
