    Not available in clear, only red.

    i see alot of rsvr bikes with clear brake light lenses and also have a clear lense in the seat cowl that matches brake light. is it because i have an '04? i already have signal lenses that are clear. hope i make sense and dont sound dumb. thanks guys

    I've not seen any of the 04/05 with the clear window, US bikes come with red lights..

    The parts catalogue only shows the red lens.

    There may be options out there for a clear brake light, but you would have to replace the whole assembly

    It's not the tailight he's talking about, the light is no problem and is the same one used on the SXV.

    Bike released '03 with red reflector in seat hump, and all through '04, with some unsold '04's being registered during '05. The '05 model had the same shape seat hump, but with no reflector, then the later hump came with the countoured front face, again with no reflector. The original humps were a very expensive part, and didn't include the reflector in the price. Someone will be able to make the reflector I bet, although it is bound to be expensive. Aprilia red reflectors were under a tenner.

    I can't imagine a red reflector against a clear tail light would look so great, maybe better to get a red tail light and keep just the clear indicators?

    matty, I had the same issue with my 04 Factory. I went crazy looking for one, but they don't exist. What I did was put a decal over the red lens to cover it up. I thought it looked it great. Here are some pics. I got the decal from ckruzel here on the forum.
