You Gotta Get One Of These

Just purchased this blinking led for rear brake lite.

My brother has the modulator and always liked it. Saw this and it's plug and play. Nothing else to add. No wiring. Works great and is very bright.

Two questions. Did you replace both tail light bulbs? You say they are bright, the regular bulb is 5/21 watts. The 3 watt led is that bright? Thanks

Ordered some really cheap ones for the tail and license plate, hoping they aren't made from graham crackers. They are somewhere on a slow boat from China right now. Not flashers though, just plain LED bulbs.

Tried to compare specs but the spec categories are almost all different.

I have a 1600 and it only has one bulb. Don't let the 3 watts fool you. It's bright.

Thanks. I have Jam Strait LED bulbs for my turn signals, brake/ tail light, and license plate light. They work well. I like your Flasher idea so I'm going to try these. Much cheaper.

I have one of these in my 900 currently. When I was running the 750, I had two of them. (one probably would have been plenty along side a standard bulb)
they are BRIGHT. I'd hazard a guess to say that hey are about 3 times as bright as the stock 5/21 watt bulb.

The one in my 900 was pulled from the 750, so I've been running that same bulb for a few years now.

Was worth every penny in my opinion.

Doesn't the listed wattage refer to power consumption rather than light output? If you look at LED replacements for incandescent the package will describe light output compared to the energy consumption of an equivalent incandescent. So yes, the LEDs do have much higher output while drawing less current.

Soon after I got my bike I purchased a red strobe from this same company. As I've posted before, when they say "super bright" they mean it. The strobe I have can be set to 20 different patterns. I mounted it on the trunk and feel much safer when I'm stopped in traffic. Until the car coming from behind is safely stopped, I keep the brake applied to make sure I'm seen. The strobe is incredibly bright, and only about $30. The trunk is the perfect mounting location for it and I highly recommend it.

So do you also need the resistor?

Question: Does the light always blink/strobe? Or is it one of those that blinks for a short time then goes steady?
