Easy Install of Brake Light Modulator
The original "BackOFF" Modulator (~$35) can be installed in less than 5 minutes on the LT LED Light bar on the top rack. This modulator has only 2 leads and it goes in between the + side of the 12v line to the the LED bar. i didn't photograph this because it is SO simple, i didn't think it needed it.
(Ignition off please) Remove the vanity mirror by removing the 5 screws holding it in place, disconnect the 2 pin connector. one side of the connector goes to the LED light bar and the other side goes outside somewhere (it's after the ABS system).
Cut the 12 volt line on the side coming from the bike (brown wire). splice and solder the red wire from the BackOFF to the bike side and the red/white wire to the connector side and tape it up. Put it back together.
The device can mount below and outside the mirror housing but could be mounted inside as well. Your choice.
It's really that simple. and believe me, if i can do it ANYONE-INCLUDING A GORILLA or any amoeba can do it.
