Pulse Brake light and rear fender reflector

Postby t_reister » Tue Dec 02, 2014 9:51 pm



I want to add a "pulse unit" to my brake light. I saw a bike that added a light to the lower reflector on the rear fender. Has anybody done this and what parts do I need.

I've used the Back-Off XP brake light flashers on several bikes, and have had excellent results: Signal Dynamics Back Off XP/Brake Light Signal Module

I installed the WHELEN TIR3 light on a custom fabricated bracket that mounts just above the license plate. THAT SUCKER IS BRIGHT!!! Many flash patterns to choose from, and I also made a timer that will cut it off after 4 seconds (so the person behind me doesn't have a seizure LOL).
Here's a link:
