Billski Taillight Mod

For you new Spirit owners the first thing to do (after taking off the reflectors) is getting rid of the stock taillight. This is a slick way to do it. I have one on my Magna and Susan has it on her SS.

Bill, is also working on fork extensions for the Spirit, the prototypes look awesome. I think he plans on making 2, 3 & 4 inch.

If ya get one check the bulb in the light .The lights are from drag specialties and the bulbs they come with suck.The first one I had lasted two weeks and burned out .I just got another light from drag specialties for my side mount it had a short in the bulb and blew the fuse.It is a great mod just throw away the bulb and get one from the auto parts store.

I agree with that. Just be careful and don't put a bulb in that's too close to the lens. It may melt/distort the lens.

Best mod - even for non-mechanical folks

I got this mod and put it on, bike looks great, seems brighter than the "brick" was.

For those of you that may not be mechanicaly inclined, this is a mod you can do to your bike without knowing much more than how to turn a screwdriver.

About the toughest thing about this mod is splicing the wires together, which i ended up having someone else help me with, but once you do it once you should be able to do it again forever.

Good work on the mod Billski, love it lots.

Splice your wires by weaving them, end to end, don't twist, with a bit of sodder, then put shrink tubing over, hit with a heat gun. Great solid connection and looks very clean. Shrink tubing protects, water proofs.

Check your wiring before soldering. My wiring wasn't either of the two suggested on the Billski mod paperwork. The only thing that was right is green is ground. Make sure the running light is dim, hit the break and make sure you have the right wires hooked up. That may be the cause of some of your guys problems with the bulbs burning out so fast. Love the mod, looks great!

You can use the stock signals with it. Billski makes a great assembly. It really cleans up the back of the bike.
