Question Will Kisan Tailblazer work on Canbus Bikes?

I am considering getting a Kisan Tailblazer for my 07 RT. Does anyone have any actual experience (no hearsay please) with these on Canbus equipped bikes, specifically an RT? My dealer is skeptical.

Thanks in advance.

I also have an 07 RT. I had the canbus version of the tailblazer. they flash very slow.....also set of the light on dash every time the brake light comes on. They claim to be working on the problem. I went to hyperlites and have had no problems w canbus, flash much faster and are far brighter than the tailblazer.. Also had the headlight modulator that melted and shorted out, took the company a month to have it inspected before they decided to replace it....

personally i would stay away from the tailblazer..

Installed a TailBlazer on my 06 RT, it works, however it will throw a fault on the dash. Kisan sent me a different model, same problem. Returned the Tailblazer to Kisan, they don't appear to be interested in fixing the problem.

Ref Fault...

Every time the circuit is interrupted/light flashes, CANBUS detects it as a burned out/failed bulb. when flashing sequence stops and bulb burns steady, if you have it set-up that way, the fault indication goes away. does it hurt anything, no.. i used them on my 07GT for a year with no problems. you just have to be able to deal with the warning that flashes each time you engage brakes, until bulb goes steady-on...

I put the unit on my '07 RT and enjoy knowing that the tail light is flashing and going steady. I get the same effect from the headlight modulator flashing a warning on the computer screen when it is working (high beam switch). Works for me.
