Thanks very much for the write up! I just ordered one last week, and look forward to recieveing it. Your video will really help!
I swear I remember another thread where someone hooked this unit up and connected it to both the trunk light and the fender light, finding both wires next to eatchother under the seat. I like the trunk light being the first choice, but I think it would be even more noticeable with both lights flashing. Anyone remember how to connect this module to both brake lights??
Daybreak: concerning wiring to both sets of LED arrays, a few comments.
I don't recall reading a post like that, but if you find it, please let me know -- I might want to do that, if it's not too much work.
I emailed Custom Dynamics a week or so ago, asking a couple of questions. One was whether they knew if anyone had used the unit on the trunk of a Victory. They didn't know of any such installs, but included this in their response:
As far as the tour pak to strobe you may need to add a second flasher unit to achieve this. I'm not 100% sure of this but on the Harley bikes we do have to add a second flasher as the harness is two separate items and do not feed together.
Well, the LED array on the XCT's trunk is one unit, unlike, apparently, H-D's TourPak (which may include two separate arrays, especially if those lights also function as turn signals). So the Vic trunk-only method is not a problem... as I confirmed in my installation. But I wonder if you would face a Harley-like problem if you tried to connect only one unit to both the fender and trunk lights on a Vic. While CustomLED's own video states that a unit can handle a near "infinite" number of LEDs, my guess is that connecting different wire runs may lead to some problems. The ECM on a Vic is a notorious fussbudget in terms of monitoring things (hence my note about the cruise-control's still working), so I have to wonder what will happen if you match up (via one flasher) both sets of brake wires. But, as I say, I'd like to learn about it, too, if it's possible.
If you wind up, like me, with one brake-light modification, note that the Vic topcase lights are about 42" off the ground. I just measured the top of the steering wheel on my Camry, and it's about 44" off the ground (and the driver's head will be higher, of course, to say nothing of an SUV or truck driver). So, for one only, I think the trunk lights are a good choice, and the wiring is certainly easy to get to.
In any case, thanks for the compliment, and glad I may have been able to help (which is, after all, why I do my write-ups, especially given the amount of help I've gotten by asking questions and reading posts here for two+ years).
