I have seen posts where people have talked about the brake lights that flash a few times before turning solid. Can anyone tell me what lights these are or where to get them? Didn't want to search all the light posts

Flashing brake lights helps drivers behind you see you better. I tap the brake pedal on my car when coming to a stop to flash the brake lights on my car also

I simply used LED bulb replacements in my 96 SE and they work great. Bought more for my other vehicles. Just make sure you get the right replacement to fit into your socket as it should. Mine are from a company called GENSSI. I used the 1157-FLASH-R model bulbs. They come two to a pack. Just google " GENSSI 1157-FLASH-R " and you'll get what you want quickly. Either way you go good luck!

Those led bulbs look interesting, seems most cost effective and easy, how many have our members have tried these?

I use Rivco bulbs on my 2012. They flash then steady on, no connectors, relays or anything. Just replace the regular bulbs. Comes in set of four.

I think I am going to order a set of these in a couple weeks, would rather not mess with the wiring if I don't have to. I appreciate the responses, all good information. Always get great help from here concerning Goldwings
