I might try the Taylormade FE next; but keep the plate mounting the same as what I have now; the Bike Litez SS kit.
The Taylormade has nothing to do with their exhaust as the '08 is not an undertail exhaust. The Taylardame FE replaces everything; break light included. I'm still not 100% sold on the replacement light though.
The Bike Litez is probably a 90% on the fitment side. Where the stock colored OEM plastic piece comes into contact with the Bike Litez there is a small gap; so I used some door sealant to close the gap. Where the turn signals are on the Bike Litez, there is a small gap. I'm thinking it was to make fitting it easier. The brake light is mounted with double side tape, but it cannot be pulled out of the bike though; even without the tape. The stock bodywork and the FE keep it there.
I was also able to get an OEM connector so I kept the wiring stock and just have a new plug for the FE.
If you want to keep things intact, the Hotbodies is not for you. The Bike Litez is probably the best solution right now. The SS mounts the plate to the battery box and you do have to drill holes; two to be exact. That plate location might get you stopped, so the non-SS kit might be the way to go.
