LOL. I just ordered two 194 sized bulb equivalent LED's and sockets from superbright LED's. I'll post up how they work when I get them installed.

Looks like a better idea than what I did. I thought about adding a bulb with the extra filament and just have to add power from switch. That would be the even cleaner option. Let us know how it works out!

Here's what I threw together this morning. The "push and turn" light sockets didn't hold the bulbs very tight, and the plastic housing on the tail light was too thick for the "turn and lock" tab on the socket to hold the socket and bulb in place, so I simply used superglue to both hold the bulb in the socket, and the socket into the tail light housing. Will require snapping everything loose IF I ever need to replace a bulb, but the sockets were only a buck or so, and it will be easy enough to pop them loose from the housing.

Turned our really well.

Now I have to wire them in. I'm thinking I might run the power wire for the LED's to the key'd power wire I have the winch contactor plugged into, and run a ground from handlebar switch back to the lights. That way I don't have a hot wire running all the way to the back of the machine. What you think @retro?

That sounds like a winner to me! It looks good too! Now I want a brake light on my bike... copycat style of course, LOL.
