    LED Tail/Brake Light Bulb

    Has anyone here tried replacing their standard tail/brake light with an LED "bulb"? I can buy an 1157 replacement that has multiple LEDs in it however I'm fearful that I'll get the dreaded "light out" notification on my dashboard.

    Thoughts? Experiences? Advice?

    Some have installed the K1300S LED taillight on the K1200S.
    Here's how Jerry did it.

    Yes, I toyed with that idea...until I saw the price of the tail light. I'm hoping to get away with a replacement bulb for less than 15 bucks.
