Spencer1 About got rear ended last fall, screeching brakes ect so I'm ordering one for each bike. $20 sounds like a lot but it sure beats becoming someone's hood ornament.

Birdhunter02 No resistor needed. Flashes 3 times then stays on.

Spockster I probably should have tried these, I've been manually flashing the brake light lately.

If the programmable bulbs were used on our two-bulb setup, you could set them to different flash sequences and really dazzle it up out back.

Wait and see what Birdhunter says, but ...

You shouldn't need the resistor set since the flasher circuit is contained in the bulb on this one.

An LED compatible flasher (EP34) should be the way to go for signals, instead of resistors. The resistors would take away from the power saving aspect of an LED turn signal conversion.

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

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.
So do you also need the resistor?

rsavant 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.

Ndr 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.

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.
