Installed mine a week after I purchased the XC. No issues with cruise at all or anything else. thumb upCurious if anyone has installed the Hyper Lites brake flashers? If so, do they interfere with the cruise control operation or is it normal? Thanx in advance.
I have a lay down license bracket that I made (and sell for $35 including shipping) so that particular bracket won't work on my bike. Here's a picture of my Hyper-Lites mounted under the signal arms.....Installed mine a week after I purchased the XC. No issues with cruise at all or anything else. thumb up
I went with the metal clips that fasten to my tag frame. All my riding buddies say they light up real well.
The main reason I went with Hyper-Lites is that just one light on the back of a vehicle does not give following drivers anything to triangulate on to determine distance. About 20% of women and a smaller percentage of men have an eye condition where they can not tell how far away a red light is from them at night. I was married to one of those women. She said that at night, a red light could be 30' or 300' away and it had the same intensity. At the time I was married to her, two riders were killed by women drivers hitting them from the rear, at night, on rural freeways. I immediately installed a Priority Lite device on every bike from then on, but it won't work (without difficulty) on the Cross bike's LED signals. So I went with Hyper-Lites.After looking at the Hyper Lite website, I thinking I may go with the brake light only. Am I correct in thinking that you have to wire the 2 Hyper lites to their module, then into the brake wire. A ground also I assume?
Simple answer: I don't have a XC or a XCT, so can't answer your question. In my case, I just tapped into the appropriate wires under the rear fender.I do have a question on where you tapped into the brake, running light wires.......did you remove the cover on the inside of the fender that protects the stock tail light and tap in there? Looks logical, and on the XCT, there is a good sized "box" under the fender above the light that is most likely an ABS component.
I'm looking at installing the Hyper Lites on my 2012 XR. Where did you tap into the brake lines? Under the seat? I looked inside the rear fender and can't see any "exposed" wires for the brake/taillight.Just finished the Hyper Lite install and I wanted to say thanks for the feedback from the forums. For those who are considering, straight forward application. The red Hyper Lite wire taps into the white/pink brake light wire on the XCT, and the gray Hyper Lite wire taps into the green/pink power wire. I would add that you need to make sure you have the black ground wire tied to a good ground source, and tapping into a ground wire might not be the best choice. Attached are a couple of pics that show the lites mounted, and the wiring harness I tapped into under the rear fender. I followed the wires from the trunk lights to this location. Definite upgrade on improving the visibility factor on the bike.
