We've had some cop hassles about the integrated tail lights in the Southern California canyons, even stubbies, saying basically that they were not "far enough apart". They can and will cite you with a bogus ticket, which can get thrown out but you have to go through the courts to get that done. PITA

It usually comes up when people are being idiots and a complaint comes in, they will do equipment inspections on the bikes sitting there. Bunch of canyon guys with fixed up bikes, they will find stuff wrong. Or make it up.

Not in CVC but in Ca Code of Regulations, which is not what they cite you for.

Looks great @Gado!! Thanks for sharing!!

I had been waiting to order mine, but I’m ordering tonight. I figure they had to order a bunch of the tail light as the mold and first run would be costly. Therefore, they shouldn’t run out of the taillights for a while.

Can’t wait to get these installed though as I hate the fender!! I wasn’t sure at first as the brake light looks very yellow on the JLDesign website. I’ve seen enough happy customers though now that I am sure it is top quality.

Well I just ordered the JL Design tail light and fender eliminator combo. The tail light they have as they must have had to buy a bunch of those to get them manufactured; however, they are out of the fender eliminator as of today. Of course. Says it should ship by November 29th. I can wait until then I guess.
