Re: Safety Lighing Poll

They run on batteries - read somewhere that they need to be replaced every 3 to 6 months, depending on usage. They can be set to blink continuously as opposed to with application of brakes.

Re: Safety Lighing Poll

The kit arrived today. I made an error and ordered the 1157 kit - that's a dual element brake light. My brake light turns out to be a single element bulb Waiting to hear back from White Horse.

Re: Safety Lighing Poll

Spoke to the folk at White Horse today. They will swap out the kit I bought (which was dropped in the mail today to get it back to them) for the kit that does not use a bulb for the transmitter (they only dual element bulbs transmitters). The TM kit comes with a small box with wires equipped with clips to attach to the brake light wires. Hope to have it installed before the RTE at the end of the month.

Re: Safety Lighing Poll

The helmet brake light kit with a black box transmitter was waiting for me when I returned from Bryan RTE. Took about 5 minutes to connect the box to my brake light wires and fasten it to the back inside wall of the brake light housing. Attached the light to my helmet, followed the instructions for programming it (so the transmitter on my bike would trigger it) and we're done!

The light strip is about 3.5 inches long, between the battery housings. There is an on/off switch and a "low battery" indicator.

One more thing to turn on and off, but additional lighting on the back of head when I apply the brakes is a good thing.

Try this, it hooks straight through splice in brake light wire, uses almost no power and is very bright.

That looks very interesting - but since it's a wired light, not well suited for helmet mounting. Lots of other applications, however - and quite affordable.

These are my 2 ninja's side by side, one with and one without. Keep in mind that i had both brake levers tied down. With this light you don't need anything on helmet, it draws your attention to the bike day and night.

Re: Safety Lighing Poll

I already have flashy LEDs connected to my brake lights - similar location as yours. They work great, but are low and may be missed by drivers in tall cages.
