Some of those aftermarket lights are smoked and consequently let pass way less light out than the factory ones .
In a motorcycle , you want the rear light to be as brighter as possible to avoid being rammed from behind . Visibility is your greatest asset , so the rest of the traffic will be aware that you are in front .
It may look cool , but you cut end up in the hospital or worse .
Just saying ...
I would , instead , replace the "beaver tail " for a side license plate . That will make the bike to look even better without sacrificing safety.

I want as much visibility as I can have on the rear of the bike .
I don`t know in Australia or even in Europe , but here in the US, we are surrounded by morons that drive aggressively and you can be waiting for a red light at an intersection and be hit from behind hard , specially at nighttime .
The rear signal lights are leds and are underneath the rear fender . They are way more brilliant that the ugly factory lights . .
My bike :
factory light off

factory light on


left signal light on
