06 ZX-6R rear turn signal/brake light integrator

Hey everyone. I was wondering if anybody has installed a rear turn signal/brake light integrator and which you would suggest.

I'm thinking about this one. Any good?

Looks good but not legal. Turn signals have to have a minumum of a 9 inch seperation.

According AMA's website you don't need turnsignals at all in MI... In Ohio they are required on bikes made from 1968 to pres. However, I didn't find anything about their placement....

ND turn signals not required... Just use hand signals.
How do you make a signal and use the clutch at the same time???

A cop pulled me over for using hand signals... Of course I wasn't trying to say stop, left, or right...

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I will be ordering this very soon.

As for the legality, I'm not nearly as worried about that as I am about the signals being much dimmer then the stock ones and much more difficult for the idiots behind me to see. Also I already took the plastic license plate monstrosity off so my license plate isn't exactly 100% since the light went with it.

Note: I don't know how accurate the site is, but it seems correct for my area.

IMO, clear alternatives tail lights look cheap.
