Back off module

Post by GreenDragon » Mon Apr 04, 2011 4:03 pm

Does any one have a suggestion on how and where the "BakOff" module can be attached to the rear brake light system, ie: all brake lights, just the spoiler brake lights, just the stock brake trunk and bag lights, etc? Where have you mounted yours?

Light travels faster than sound, that is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!

I have three brake lights: the original single taillight, a strip just below the trunk, and two very bright LED lights either side of the original taillight. I put my brake flasher on the original taillight only - so the super-bright LEDs come on solid letting the inattentive cager know that YES I AM BRAKING, while the flashing tail light catches their inattentive attention to the fact that YES I AM BRAKING.

On my 1500 mine operates all the brake lights in the rear. Sometimes I think I should have just put it on the trunk spoiler lights. My module is located under the seat.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "
