Re: Would you recommend Kisan pathBlazer & tailBlazer
My two cents, regarding the Kisan tailBlazer for the GT is that it's a flip of a coin when it comes to whether it'll work flawlessly on your bike, or not. On another BMW site (more GT specific) one can read a lot of complaints regarding the tailBlazer actually not functioning on many bikes.
If you take the GT in for (unrelated) service, the BMW Service Techs will reportedly insist on swapping out the Kissans and reinstalling the factory bulbs to avoid the error codes they see on the computer.
Lastly, the Kissan bulbs are 20W vs. the factory 21W, so even though the perceived brightness of the Kissan halogen bulb might be a bit higher, overall it isn't any brighter that the factory bulb and will not make the bike any more conspicuous (oscillation notwithstanding).
In short, I'd opt for the P3 myself.
