poorboy backoff brake light
hello i came with this idea some days ago and today i installed this mod on my bike. well is very simple and i since its a security feature i think its good. i installed a regular turn signal flasher to work on the trunk brake lights. when you hit the brakes. the saddlebags brake lights will light as usual and the trunk bar will flash. very cheap and can be done plug and play.
i bought a connector that fits on the stock trunk light connector so i didn't need to cut anything on the stock wiring and i can take the mod off if i dont like it. just wires the brake lights thru the flasher and done. if you're out of us or wanna save some bucks on the backoff modulator this is a good way to go.

It might be OK in Mexico but a continuous flashing red light could be a legal problem elsewhere, that's why the regular brake modulators turn solid after a few flashes. Check out your laws, we wouldn't want to have to come down there and bail you out Smile
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

I did the same thing on my 85 Aspy William.Ran it like that for 3 or 4 years before I traded it in.Don't know if the dealer unhooked it or not.I had no problem with the coppers Tricky.I've had them sit behind me at a stoplight and never got pulled over.In fact one of my buddies is a cop and his 86 had one on it.That's where I got the idea from when I repaired his.Would be a good idea to check local laws though,because there are always those new over zealous cops that would nail their own grandmother for just about anything.

If Id'a known it would last this long I would've taken better care of it !!!
