Looks like a better idea. I am running a standard brake light modulator and my son has a WigWag system too. But on a Burgman 650 the engine braking is enough that car-truck drivers are suprized when we fall out of WARP speed in front of them. I have told so many new 650 riders to squeeze the brake lever a bit to let the tailgater behind know you are slowing.
This item combines the brake light modulator and the riders brain in one small package.
Anyone want to get together and do a group funding/buy??? This is in the final design faze and moving in to the production faze and these guys need some "KickStart" monies. We could be the first forum sponsoring them.
I just added a "Back Off" brake light modulator to mine and it's great. Only need to cut a wire. It wigwags and is bright. Less than the $79 shown here for the license plate system. Oh, Back Off also has one of these. I just saw it in a cycle shop in Indianapolis.
This is strange, I've had this same system, brand new in the box from another manufacturer for 3 years now, and just yesterday (due to boredom from my surgery) pulled it out and temporarily wired it to see how it worked. This thing is like a red disco when you slow down! (or in my case, the axis/level thingy I just tilted backwards, or forward??) It REALLY strobes and lights up? I'll have to look at the name brand again, "Safe Ride" I believe.
25251.5. (a) Any motor vehicle may also be equipped with a system
in which an amber light is center mounted on the rear of a vehicle to
communicate a component of deceleration of the vehicle, and which
light pulses in a controlled fashion at a rate which varies
exponentially with a component of deceleration.
(b) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with two amber lamps on the
rear of the vehicle which operate simultaneously with not more than
four flashes within four seconds after the accelerator pedal is in
the deceleration position and which are not lighted at any other
time. The lamps shall be mounted at the same height, with one lamp
located on each side of the vertical centerline of the vehicle, not
higher than the bottom of the rear window, or if the vehicle has no
rear window, not higher than 60 inches. The light output from each of
the lamps shall not exceed 200 candlepower at any angle horizontal
or above. The amber lamps may be used either separately or in
combination with another lamp. (c) Any stoplamp or supplemental stoplamp required or permitted by Section 24603 may be equipped so as to flash not more than four times within the first four seconds after actuation by application of the brakes.
Not long because I did all the research about a month ago for what was acceptable in California since that's where i would have to use them.
And other users in California might want to know that, As I said, I like the idea , just cant use them here. unless they want to do what hyperlites did and make the flash timing customizable for CA - if so I would buy one right now !
