i have an 05 R1 also. i would strongly recommend that you just purchase a taillight integrator kit and safe yourself the trouble. i would personally stay away from the clear alternatives products. i would recommend either the ufo led for the R1 by blueflame or customled by mccoy sports. they are identical to one another and cost the same amount. or you can even go with a dr. x kit by vfxkits.com, but they are a bit pricier. either one you go with, they are EXTREMELY bright and use high quality products. you won't be disappointed. i have the customled on my R1, and i love it. people say that they can't really stare at it directly for too long. brighter is safer in my book.
