Triton 2 - LED Brake Light

Got me one of these today, brand new in the box, never used or installed, I never thought I would ever find a virgin one of these....


Going to install it today, I will post pictures of the install latter...


Even if I don't like it, couldn't pass up on the deal, guy sold his K1200s and never installed it on his bike, it's been sitting on a shelf collecting dust.

Re: Triton 2 - LED Brake Light

I have one on my K1200s. Much better than the stock "baboon ass" light. I got mine from ebay for $35 shipped.

Re: Triton 2 - LED Brake Light

Damn!! They stopped making those years ago! ... We used to sell them and I still get requests for them now and then... You lucked out, my friend...

Much better looking than the baboon ass that comes on these bikes..

BTW.. I had one on my bike for a while.. loved the look, but they are NOT as bright as oem.. I'd advise some other accessory lighting back there.. Let me know if you want help with that..

I guess itís just habit for some of us older guys,and for others it might be a privacy thing, yes the plate is seen by anyone on the road behind us, but itís usually itís just in your area, as opposed to being show to the entire world, I guess some just donít need added exposure...
