    Grom / MSX tail light

    I have cheap but decent looking led turn signals that were on the bike when I bought it. However they are cheap and the plastic cover just fell off one. Also when indicating a right turn they all flash like hazards. So as I think about replacing them I'm looking at all the grom brake lights around me which are about the same size and so much brighter, and there are loads of aftermarket grom lights that have integrated turn signals. Has anyone fitted grom brake lights?

      Those are really nice. I would if you could transplant into the Hawk housing?

        My Son did this on his Hawk. He bought an aftermarket fiberglass race replica seat cowl from Air-Tech Streamlining though and cut the hole to fit. The stock tail light hole is a bit big.




        Here's the final product:



        He made a bracket and attached the light to the subframe instead of the rear cowl. I couldn't find a picture of it but he has a video on Facebook of the setup: https://www.facebook.com/scott.kelle...1555382190436/

          That picture of the light inside the original hole is exactly what I wanted to see

          That looks very good. I'd love to see the video but it is not public so only his facebook friends can see it

              OK Kids, I downloaded my son's video from Facebook and posted it to my Photobucket page. It should be public for all to see. (note: He's technically my Step-son so he still calls me "Mr. Mark" - you'll hear that in the audio.)

                Looks good, Are these available on Amazon. I am planning to replace the stock lamps on my Grom 125 with these. They look really good.

                  Indeed they are: https://www.amazon.com/Yibid-Integra...s%2C156&sr=8-2 Others are listed as well.

                  I still have the video of my son's setup but I do not have the pics. I can try to get them from my son again. I think I need to change the format to post.

                  Here's the video: It's 6 years old and done with an older phone so apologies for the poor quality.

                    Very cool tail light!

                    Rats! I dunno the technical issue ... I can’t see the photos and I’m not on FB anymore.

                    Was a photo posted of the Grom light in the stock Hawk Cowl?

                        I put the video on Youtube (above). The pics were lost in the forum rebuild. I'll check in with son and see if he has them stashed somewhere. He bought a cowl from Air-Tech and cut the race plate section off. It came with no tail light hole. So he was able to cut a hole to fit the grom light. Here's the cowl he bought:

                            Update. I finally got some pics from my Son. He only had them on Instagram so I had to kind of cut them and.... well, here they are:

                              Do those brake light setups have a board behind the lens that can be trimmed some by chance?
