07-08 CBR600RR taillight conversion to 03-06 integrator

Here is a quick write up for those interested.

If you don't feel like fabricating your own brackets or shaving the integrator yourself, please contact Tripage of http://www.tripageled.com you can purchase everything you need from him to do this conversion including a license plate bracket for relocating the license plate as seen on mine. I used lite'n bolts as my license plate light, but Tripage can actually install some LEDs into your rear tire hugger to work as your license plate light as well. Wiring is the only pics I do not have, you are on your own for wiring this up. It's mostly plug and play, but you do have to splice turn signals and license plate lights into your wiring.

Here is tripages prices:

Taillight, brackets, FE and a new oem hugger with led's installed.
All prices include shipping in the U.S.
First take off both seats/seat cowl, rear fairing.



Now comes the hard part, it's best to do this mod at the same time you put a new exhaust on because you pretty much have to remove your exhaust or battery try to remove this part. If you look at your tail their is a huge ugly heat shield to prevent your butt from burning from the extremely hot stock pipe. You can see what it looks like in this pic if you don't remove or shave it, it's hideous. I heard of people removing it completely with a new exhaust, but I chose to shave mine to where you can't see it at all to still provide some protection from heat. It's your choice to what you want to do with it, but it's the hardest part of this job.



Next you need to cut your battery tray so your light will fit. I am going to assume you are using a tripage setup because that's what I got pics for. If you want to do it another way, the distance for shaving the battery tray and creating a good seal underneath the tail is on your own head. Here is the pic of how far you should cut with the tripage setup.



Next you want to put in the foam provided by Tripage at the very end of the tail so you can rest your taillight on the foam creating a good seal. Here is a pic of the inside of the tail show how the foam seals the tail between the light and the battery tray.



Now before you close everything up, you need to splice in all your wiring and connect all connections. Once you have done that, test to make sure that the taillight works for running light, braking, and turn signals; also if you installed a license plate light make sure it is connected and working at this point as well. You may need to run a lot of wire to connect it to the inside of your tail through the front battery compartment and between the fairing battery tray to the license plate bracket/rear tire hugger.

Now that you know the electrical works, you want to close everything up. Start by shoving the taillight into the fairing as far as you can. Assuming you already shaved it. You need to shave off the brackets on it and around some of it. It's a lot easier to just get Tripage to do this for you by buying your taillight through him. Have your brackets already installed when you shove the taillight in, brackets from tripage look like this:



Reattach tail with taillight in it to bike and tighten down bolts, you have to be strong with it to get this damn thing to fit properly. It aggravating trying to keep all the wiring on the battery tray and fit this thing, while keeping the taillight in place without it popping out. Once you do it a couple times it's a little easier, but still a pain in the ass.

Now, put your seats back on it should be finished and look like this:



If you have a seat cowl, flip it over and put some washers/nuts on the two rear screws that hold the painted cowl and the underneath black piece together. The washers/nuts will have to go between these two pieces and into those two dimples made in the black piece to raise the painted part up away from the black piece to make it fit better on the tail now that you raised it up considerably with the taillight mod. You still have to pry the damn thing on though.

Here is a pic of a non tripage setup, however, I don't know how well it works or if there is any problems because it is a lot closer to the pipe and could brown easier.






GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR MOD!

LOL, it's not that bad. Hardest parts are getting that heat shield trimmed or removed and then getting the light to stay in the tail to put it all back together.

Second, call up Erik Buell and see what he can do about all that weight up high.

Just fluckin' around... Good write-up Trip.

Yeah, it's light, but the CG could be lower with an underslung exhaust...

My bike is as light as a blast. Plus, CG makes no difference when one bike can completely outhandle the entire brand.

I missed this before, that is so not even close to being true. 125 gp bikes would own the sh*t out of a buell in the corners, they are probably one of the best handling bikes in the world. For stock production bikes, I would look at something like a RS250 and SM's as well. I would like to see the same rider on a production 600 vs a buell as well before I even remotely even consider this statement as true.

Very cool. I've been looking for a FE kit. I just showed this to my bf and this will be the next mod to my bike. I purchased the Akro exhaust, its just on back order.
