I know this is an old topic. I just got my first Harley and vrod. I simply want a dark smoke taillight and can not find one that looks well built and does not have turn signals. And advice would be greatly appreciated

If you really want to do this right, find a smoked cover (they're out there, but are admittedly getting harder to find), and take it apart (it's not that difficult). Replace the incandescent bulb with a Genesis-II 2” 1157 (dual element) red 48-led tail light like this one:
