eBay intergraded tail light question/safety

I purchase the tail light off of eBay and they ensure that it's bright and can be seen. I am concern that if I remove the OEM tail light and signals vehicles will not see the light very well. I want some feed back on everyone's thoughts. Are the lights bright? Can you see them clearly from a good distance? Are the turn signals noticeable? How are they in the sun? I just want to make sure I am seen and I do not get rear ended. Hope to hear some feed back. Also any suggestions on a tail light they recommend.

You're going to have to be more specific than "off of eBay", attach a picture and a link to the ad so that we can see the light you are talking about, it might be a name brand part that is being resold by an eBay seller that someone here has experience with. If no one here has had this tail light then you can always see what their return policy is and always order and try it out and return it if it's not what you want.

What Gar said. I run LEDs strips from Wal-Mart and they are super bright. I just wired them into system and they work great. However, LED from different companies do shine differently.

eBay intergraded tail light question/safety

The best people to ask are the people w whom you ride and who ride behind you. I've been told that my LED lights in my Low and Mean Reaper fender are for shit during the day.

If/When I repair my Fury, I'm going to augment my brake/turn lights with more LEDs.

I run a double band of LEDs on the back with integrated blinkers that I got off eBay. They are plenty bright, although not sure how long they will last with weather. Time will tell.
