Brake light upgrade?

Im looking to upgrade my brake light to LED for better visibility. I have a 2007 Vstar 1100 Midnight Custom. Anyone have any suggestions? I've been looking around and I dont know which brand to go with.

I did something like this (maybe it was this, I just don't remember it being so expensive, but it was 100 LED's). Also have it on a modulator so it flashes when I brake.

I've been very happy with this set up on my Roadstar. Plug and play/easy install.

Look at the fitment. It says it fits your model.

You could use one of these from Superbright led's . It's about 10 bucks and they have fast delivery.

Well that's odd. When I plug in your model, it shows it fits.

Yes they have dual function for front signals with running lights and single for rear turn only.
