I just wanted to say thanks & post this pic. This was taken with the key on. It's obvious how much brighter pilot3's light is even before you hit the brakes. Thanks pilot3

Another bike lighting the way.

I installed mine today. Very easy to install. Making a channel for the wire was the most difficult part. And by difficult I mean not very. I didn't have a Moto Tool handy so I just used a rat tail file. Doesn't take much filing on the lip to give the wire some clearance.

I didn't even bother fiddling with that white connector clip. Once you stuff all those wires back down in there, they aren't going anywhere. I guess you could wrap a tie wrap around them all if you were worried.

One of these days I'm going to remove that brace that separates the "storage" area from the rear section. That's valuable storage space back there! You would have to relocate that one electronic doohickey though. It has "UP" embossed on the top so I'm assuming that is the tip over/shut off device? I also wonder if it has to remain in that same left/right posture. If you turned it 90 degrees and mounted it to the side then did a wheelie or a stoppie, would the bike shut down? Sorry, just thinking out loud.

I mounted my light a little different. I trimmed a 1/2" wide piece of 3M foam tape down to about 3/8" and ran it over the entire length of the light. I went ahead and installed the light with the rubber gasket just showing from the top. Then put the stock light back in. I do have faith in the 3M tape on a smooth surface but I'm leery of that rough plastic. I'll give it a try. You do have an option of making an aluminum L bracket and mounting the light with some hardware. The LED light chassis has two threaded holes in the back of it. If I had an XC and was going to be bouncing down a trail I might think about that.

I forgot about the feature of the momentary pulsing light once you apply the brake. It does get your attention. Did anyone mention this sucker is BRIGHT!?

I will assure you that the 3M adhesive will not come off under any riding conditions. It is over 50# psi of holding strength. As long as you prepped the areas clean, you will be hard pressed to even pull it off by hand.

Glad you got it all set up. Enjoy!

Perfect timing. I plan on doing my turn signals about that time as well. Thanks for sharing the great product!

Finally got time to install this item...

Only took a trip to Lowe's and an extra set of hands! . Trip to lowes was for a magnet to get the dropped screw, you know the one you warn us about in the instructions! Got it all back together and rode over to a friends house just after dark. He walked up as I parked and yelled, "That brake light is obnoxious and I LIKE IT!!!"

Ok while doing an install of a PDM60 I did this which opens up the area where the screw falls. . Remove the license plate and that will expose 2 bolts. Remove those bolts and the two vertical bolts directly above the rear tire and that bottom plate comes right out. Faster to get the dropped screw than magneting for it.

Glad everyone is liking the light.
