Default Custom LED Brake Flashing Module

I installed the Custom LED magic strobe brake light flasher on my 11 Cross Country http://www.customled.com/products/br..._modulator.htm and it was pretty impressive. Ten different patterns with the strobe being an eye catcher. Only problem was my cruise quite working. I got back on their website and realized after reading that you have to install their CANbus load equalizer http://www.customled.com/products/lo..._equalizer.htm It was only five dollars so I ordered it. Installed it and now everything works great. Just giving everyone a heads up should they install the magic strobe and make the same mistake I made. I know Custom Dynamics sells the same one but I didnít see any reference to the load equalizer when you put it on a late model Victory.

No problem, Ill make a clip when I get home tonight and post. You will be amazed by the strobe effect. I got mine set so it strobes for about four seconds then stays steady. If Im at a light and see somebody coming up behind me Ill hit the brake again to give them another warning.

I viewed the video that was in your first link - very impressive. The latter settings would be great for when riding around in an urban setting to grab the attention of cage drivers. But if I were following you on a tree lined twisty road out in the country, that would drive me nuts and I would want to be ahead of you. Keep that in mind when you have another rider behind you. Then again, there are not too many tree lined roads in AZ, are there?

Actually Mt. lemmon is 30-45 minutes away and raises to about 9,000 ft, actually have snow sking up there. Its a popular ride when the roads and weather is nice. Great in the summer when its over a hundred in the valley and 70's on top. I have had several riders behind me and not a complaint durring the day. Now at night I could see someone complaining.

Stymie, maybe the video was more dramatic since it was taken indoors and not out in the daylight. That makes a big difference. I have Hyper-Lites that do much the same thing and when at a stop light I do the same thing - re-apply the brakes as a car comes up behind me. No such thing as being too safe on a bike, eh?

I had a guy on a bike pull up to me once at a light. He said he had slowed down a ways back because he thought it was a police motorcycle the way the lights flashed. Thats gotta be a bonus, people will slow down way back if they think its a motor cop at the light.

That's gotta be a big plus.

Finally got some video. Had to post it on YouTube to work, something about this forum not recognizing the format, Ill figure it out later. This video doesn't do it any justice, much more dynamic and brilliant in person. Tried doing it at night but was just one big bright blur, the strobe is too quick and bright I guess. Maybe a high speed camera would capture it.
