The DRC Edge Tail Light Kit, sometimes referred to as Edge2, is one of the most popular upgrades for the WR250R (and WR250X). It replaces the big ugly stock tail light/turn signal assembly and gives the bike a much cleaner look. While the Edge Tail Light is pretty bright, I've always thought it could be brighter to help drivers see me a little better when approaching from behind.
The 12oclockLabs Edge2 Processor Upgrade Board (shown above) is a drop-in replacement for the OEM LED board inside the standard DRC Edge Tail Light. It not only makes the tail light and brake light brighter, but it also has features like safety brake pulsing and the ability to flash integrated turn signals (if you decide not to run external turn signals). The unit is also designed with 500,000 life hour capacitors for an exceptionally long operating life.
From a safety standpoint, I think the brighter tail light/brake light is reason enough to install this mod. But you'll also get features like safety brake pulsing.... the brake light will flash a few times when you apply the brakes, which makes you all the more visible to drivers. I've already installed it in our WR250R project bike and plan to add one to our WR250X as well.

Click video above for a short overview of the DRC Edge Tail Light kit we installed on our WR250R and WR250X project bikes. Also mentioned in the video is the 12oclock Labs DRC Edge2 Processor Upgrade Board installed in the tail light of our WR250R. The upgrade board is a drop-in replacement for the DRC LED board inside the Edge Tail Light, and not only makes the tail light brighter, but also gives you a few additional features like safety brake light pulsing and even integrated turn signals. We also discuss the flashers/turn signals we have installed on each bike, DRC Type 601's and DRC Type 602's.
