Nowt better to do on my lunch break, so was looking around the net and came across this.

http://www.bikevis.com/motorcycle-led-brake-light-modulators.html

Has any one used or seen this before. I think it would look good plus be a good safty feature.

Look quite easy to wire also.

Thoughts welcome as always.

I really like the idea of brake light modulators but am unsure of the legality in the UK, I believe the make you more visible as the grab the attention of the following vehicle.

Hi all. just had a quick chat with my mot man who said it has to be a constant light & not a flashing one. 
Although led's do flash themselves they do so at a rate faster than the eye can see so it appears to be a constant light.
So unless anyone knows better then I'd say it won't be allowed at an mot.

That's a shame as I really like those a lot but it does confirm what I thought I new. Flashing Brake LED's 3498837457

I may add one and have a hidden switch so that for the MOT and if stopped by the Police I can have a normal light without their knowledge & just use it when I want. Just affect at times would be fun and in fog would be safer.

Wat a load of old tosh

But ahhh hahhhh, in the manual it says it can be wired to a switch. Whats that Mr Police man, my lights are flashing? (switch OFF) Think you might be mistaken there Mr Officer sir. Flashing Brake LED's 50610

I have just fitted one to my M800. It flashes 4 times quicky,4 times slowly and then stays on ...my MOT guy says as long as he sees a constant light after a few seconds he will pass it.
I think I'll wire in a switch too for the benefit of Fuzz..



This a wee quick vid of it working .

That is funny, but I'm not sure that the driver behind you undertand what's happening to your tail lamp

You can try a LED bulb for the tail light if you want to increase the visibility when you break, that's very cheap and lawful

What's there for the driver behind to understand other than "red light caution " .I have wired in a switch for cops and MOT ..My tail light is already LED...The point of these is to catch the attention of the road user behind, warning them of you slowing ,just like a normal light but better in my opinion..
That said if I do happen to be rammed from behind by a confused Volvo driver who thinks flashing red light means destroy I will switch it off lol...

I think they're a good idea, anything that catches the attention of the driver behind is a bonus  Flashing Brake LED's 3498837457

LOL!

I'm sure that in a highway this flash could help, as when you Turn On the led turn lights as hazard lights in a strong break, but into the city when you are stopped in a semaphore pressing the rear brake pedal it could look like a discotheque

I would prefer them to flash rapidly for 5 flashes and then go constant like the Lambo's and will keep an eye out for a unit with the different cycle settings. Healtech do one but its 8X more expensive than this one.
I assume these would be useless to our American cousins due to their turn signals being red?  
Disco time at the traffic lights might be good as long as it DON'T involve the Village People...lol.
