    FZ6 2007 Brakelight / turn signal.

    Just got this bike about a week ago and am not happy with the brake light / turnsignal system on the back. Any suggestions as to where I could buy a different set that is brighter and more noticeable? Thanks.

    to the forum! There is a more expensive tailamp assembly made for the fz6 called Motodynamic but I don't know if it's brighter than the stock OEM lamp. The stock OEM from Yamaha is different than a standard 1157 type automotive lamp in that it has a bridge in the filament that makes it more robust than a standard automotive 1157. I believe the OEM may also be brighter. When I had my FZ6 I installed a 1157 equivalent LED lamp in the stock tail light assembly and it was brighter than the OEM. I looked and found a more promising LED 1157 replacement here. https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...Specifications


    Cycle Gear has some nice LED aftermarket directional lights. https://www.google.com/search?q=cycl...utf-8&oe=utf-8

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    I put a SINGLE, 16 LED Hyper lite just above my tag. I used the combo flashing brake and running light.

    It is WAY brighter than the stocker, and is separate so should your stock bulb blow, the LED still works...

    @FinalImpact, @Ohendo, and myself put the yamaha blinker plus on (front and back)... a bigger change than you asked, and does nothing for the rear tail/brake light, AND they were not cheap, but I'm happy with them.
