TST Integrated tail light - yes or no?

I'm thinking about installing a TST integrated tail light on my 2015. I like the added brightness, the pulsating brake light function and the smoked lens.
What I DON'T like are the turn signals that are built into the light. I've seen these on bikes and when I drive up on them I can see the tail light blinking but it really doesn't register that it's actually a turn signal until I get right up on the guy because there is almost no separation between the left and right signals. With the OEM's it is more clear to folks behind me what my directional change is going to be. I know, there are a lot of you who don't even use turn signals so this is a "so what" but I personally feel that if I'm sending a clear signal (pun intended) to those around me it increases my safety margin in traffic.
What do you guys think?

Thanks for the comments, how will you install signals on your mirrors? I have a 2015 model so the mirrors don't have the built in signals like the later models.
My s1000rr is also a 2015 year model. I picked up some stealth mirrors with signal lights integrated into it. They are similar to the Rizoma mirrors. I ordered them off AliExpress. I found out about them on this post:


I will wire them with the Watsen flush mount and roundel signals. I haven’t installed them yet, I am waiting for the Watsen signals to be painted.

I have them on my 2022 S1000RR and they look awesome. That and the license plate mount really make the ass end look sweet.

The comments I get the first time someone rides with me is, "I was wondering why your brakes were on, and then you put your brakes on, damn they are bright!!!"

I just checked the price on the Rizoma Veloce mirrors with the integrated turn signals - $454?? Crazy expensive..

That’s why I picked up the stealth “like” mirrors hahaha.

How did you wire your license plate light?

As a follow up, I ended up buying and installing the smoked version of the TST on my 2015 and it looks amazing. It gives 3 light pulses then goes solid when I hit the brakes, turn signals work fine. Very easy plug and play install too - no cutting, splicing, soldering, none of that.

If you didn’t already know. There is a button where you can change the dynamic light pattern when you press the brakes.

Yeah, I watched the TST install vid on Youtube before I put this on the bike and the guy demo'd all the patterns so I knew the options. I just went with the regular 3 pulses then solid pattern. The great thing is I can change it later to something else.
For all who are on the fence about this product, go for it!! The shipping was fast, the install video was very clear, the build quality is good and the installation was a piece of cake. I'm familiar with tools but I'm no master mechanic and I had zero issues hooking this up.

Do you have a license plate light attached? I didn’t see an extra plug to connect it on my integrated rear light. I haven’t installed it yet.

Ah, that was an issue that I had to correct manually by cutting out a small section of insulation on the positive and negative wires for the taillight, and connecting the license plate wires to them.

Mine came with a plug n play light. I drilled a tiny hole behind the plate and ran the wire.

Ok thanks. I figured I had to do that.

Can you post the link?
I watched the one from TST install video and didn't see the explanation. Perhaps I'm not looking at the correct one.

The installer doesn’t necessarily explain the modes, but he presses the button and goes through them starting at 19:35. Hope this helps.
