In a little while I'll be off to tractor supply to get a trailer marker light to use as a brake light. I'll also be changing my current brake light into a tail light eventually, so that I can eliminate the need for any batteries that can't be charged by my charging system.
I got some smaller rectangular shaped trailer marker lights at autozone that are LED, I plan to use them because of their small current draw on a battery, tractor supply may have the LED type also, they will be brighter than the standard light normally also.

Tractor supply has the led marker lights, but I accidentally got an incandescent one today. I'll be taking it back tomorrow. Hopefully I'll make a few dollars in tips tomorrow, so I can exchange it for an led type which is about $4 more than the one I got today.

My current brake light has an 18 led automotive bulb in it, but its just not as bright as what I had hoped it would be. Its plenty bright for night use, which is why I plan to use it as a tail light. Its just not as bright during the day. I think its the lens type. This was originally a Yamaha turn signal, that may be why it doesn't shine as bright during the day.

Talking Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I rode it again, just like everyday. In fact, I rode all three of them just because I could....

I tore down the rear wheel for my AMF build to get it ready for when the new 12g stainless spokes show up.

I turned the head so the plug now faces forward. for whatever reason that improved performance in all areas. Had a friend tell me i was crazy, told him to ride it. He came back a believer.

Nose (electrode) of the plug facing the forward on the bike or toward the carb?

If it's facing toward the front of the bike it retards ignition timing a bit.
