XR650R LED Brake light....will this work?

I am running the stock XR650R stator without a battery source. With the 2 parts below; Will I have a fully functioning "brake light" and not just a brighter "running" light?

I just want to be sure before I purchase.

Thanks again for the help.

I think the led panel I have is the same, came from Wheeling cycle. Works pretty good and yes it has a brake light. The stock reflectors aren't great but they're OK.

Probably won't be super bright unless the power is fully rectified, i.e. full-wave/bridge rectifier.

How did it work? Where you order it from? How much did the LED cost?

Overkill approach? I use one of these:

Cheap, easy to fit, strong, and looks good. The lights are bright too, way brighter than the stock (UK) tail-light. Plug and play on a UK bike (larger stator).

Fitted to my bike here, there is now nothing in the big stock reflector on the guard:


(ignore the screwdriver holder!... :) ) And obviously I'd not yet glued on the number plate!

I just hooked one of those up sat., it works good.
A little dim on the running light but really bright on the brake light.

Suz1100,
Where did you source this? I've found the same item NLA from Wheeling Cycle Supply and Vancouver Supermoto...

I'm running one as a brake/taillight on the stock stator, no battery, works fine for me!

PM me if you don't want to give away your secrets to the masses, but I'm dying for an OEM replacement solution so I can ditch the under fender setup...
