Brake Lights

Anyone using these bulbs on your 1800.....Plug and play....Flash 5 times and then remain steady red until brake is released.

That's new to me, might work.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Nice looking lights. A real attention getter.

Yes they are attention grabbers.....What I like most is just changing the bulbs...No cutting or splicing of OEM wiring and a lot cheaper than other systems......Changing all 6 brake light bulbs was less than 50 bucks.

I have something similar that controls the rear spoiler light. The regular brake lights just come on and stay on. You might check with your state regs and see if it's OK to use them in place of standard brake lights.

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.

I would just chance it until someone told me I couldn't. OK officer, I'll get that fixed right away.

They are legal in Missouri.....Missouri law says brake lights on motorcycles can flash up to 5 seconds after brake is applied and then remain steady....

I had a back-off on my 1500 and traveled the lower 48 and Alaska, was never stopped by law enforcement.

mine flashes ten times real fast, and then goes solid.
it is a bar of LED lights in the center of the trailer, and also on my 1800's trunk wing.
