Question Brake Light Modulator

I am looking to put a brake light modulator on my 03 LT.

What brand / model does everyone prefer

Should I connect to the tail light (low)
or
Should I connect to the Light Bar on the trunk (High)?

Thanks.

I bought THIS but haven't installed it yet. Shop around and you may find a better price as I did. I'll have to check my records to see where I got it from. Some dealer in VA.

+1 on this. The unit is manufactured in Canada and works quite well. Doug Sorchilla was riding behind me and mentioned how visible my bike is form the back.

I got the one here http://motogear4you.com/mcart/index.cgi?code=3&cat=6 (6th item on the page) He had a X-mas special, buy the LED reflector kit (8th item on page) and get the flasher free.

Hi Steve,

well that video clip shows how to get noticed, I wondered if you had any more info on what system or systems were used to acheive that. I guess it was one of the decel type warnings on the market but did it take two kits or one? Any problems with ABS bulb failure warning?

Any info welcome

thanks
Mike

All the working stuff on the bike was there when I bought it from our very own Raffy. Click here and then scroll down to the Tailblazer - Flashing Brake Lights and Tailblazer LED Module - Kisan Technologies. That's what Raffy installed. To date I have had no issues on my LT, but then again it is a 2000 and the ABS II reacts differently to the Integral on the newer LTs.

On His Ride,
Steve
