So I reached out to Custom Dynamics to see if they made a tail/brake light cluster for my 2009 vstar 650. Turns out that they do not, as the shape of the light changed at some point for the 650. However, they offered up a direct base LED cluster that simply fits in the 1157 socket and will work as stock but be much brighter than a bulb. However, when I received it I realized that this is a socket that is attached via wires to a cluster and that the cluster must be taped - yes taped - to the stock lens or reflector somehow in order to work. (see pic). Has anyone done this and if so how long does the cluster stick to the tape before falling off? I don't want hope that my tail light tape is working - it seems like a failure waiting to happen.
