Can the 01/02 R6 tail light fit into the 99 tail section?

or does the whole tail section have to be replaced to have the cool looking round tail lights?

This should be in the "Tech & Mods" section...

But anyways, the '01 style lights will not fit directly into the tail section. You need to replace a few parts completely to do the conversion. I recently converted my bulb style brake and signal lights on my 2000 to the LED '01 style.

It takes about 3-5 hours depending on how mechanically inclined you are. And it costs about $200-250 dollars for all the parts.

Here's a site that walks you through the entire process pretty well.


If you have any questions, PM me and I'd be happy to help you out. It was a pretty fun weekend project. And it looks WAY better.

the website shows me everything! woot woot. I already have a tail light so I'll get shopping for the rest.

mod, feel free to move this.

two thumbs up with a twist! Hello eBay......
