TY175: Rear Light

I bought a pattern rear light from eBay, thinking that was a clever move. It turned out to be OK quality but not the same as the original Yamaha part. See below, the extra mounting hole at the rear of the new light on the left.....

So, I refurbished the existing light on the right. The only part used from the pattern light was the chrome strip, as the original one is scratched, and dented.

The original light cleaned up OK, I used some new grey cable sheathing, and added new terminals. It turned out pretty well, certainly far better than the pattern one.
