That was 2006 so I don't remember much about it.  I have a Clear Alternative integrated tail light which of course has the turn signals in it.

The Clear Alternatives Integrated taillight was the factory Shape but with a large LED printed circuit board inside that replaced the bulbs. 
jaws-motorcycles.co.uk also made an LED taillight that had the XX pattern in LEDs bright.

Thanks I’m looking for a flush fit or something with a different fitting shape just to take a few years off the birds rear

There are some LED undertail kits still available on Ebay I think.
I have one installed on my 01 Bird that I like.

I like the OEM lens personally.

That plate is way too easy for the cops to pick up on.  Does it have a meaning?

It's been altered....  ...poorly for my part.

FWIW I was looking at my '01 and '97 while I still had both and it looks like the tail fairings would accept either light assembly.  I didn't think to check real close, just seemed like they'd swap.

It cleans up the tail nicely.
I like how it looks on my Candy Glory Red BlackBird!

I am moving some bikes around in my garage today so will take a pic of it and post it here.

There are a bunch of LED tail light options, most with built in turn signals, on aliexpress.com.  I shopped and then decided I really did like the stock light and even turn signals.  One signal has a bad lens so I just ordered OEM replacements on Aliexpress for $16.

Two pictures I took today.
Brake lights on, and one with the left signal on and the other with the right signal on.
I hung a gallon bottle of vinegar on the foot brake lever to show the brightness of the brake lights.

Thank you, yes it was drilled and tapped back in 2002.

Looks really good John so clean and tidy. John did you drill and tap the swing arm your self? Would you be about to snap a picture of it? I really want to lose the centre stand. Cheers
