Custom LED Brake Light Flasher

by Andii

I’ve recently installed the CustomLED brake light flasher on my FJR1300. What this unit does is allows you to modulate the brake light flash with 10 different pre-settings (see page bottom).

Installation was straight-forward and includes connectors & zip-ties. It took about 10 minutes to install. On the FJR it was placed under the passenger seat and tapped into the brake at the same spot.

The purpose is to offer greater visibility while braking by getting the drivers’ behind attention. I noticed how well it works as after the install cars were stopping an extra length or two behind me. Good and cheap insurance from possible rear-enders. We have them in stock for $69.95.

Radar & Laser Gadgets

From Adaptive Technologies

 

 

PX™ RADAR AND LASER DETECTION SYSTEM 2.0

With the TPX™ System, there’s no more trying to make automotive radar detectors work with your bike. No more missed alerts. No more hours of wiring jobs. No more fear of rain. No more fear of theft. No more microscopic buttons. No more money, energy, sanity and precious riding hours wasted trying to make automotive radar detectors work with your bike. The all new TPX™ Radar and Laser Detection System 2.0 has all the features you need with proven, top-notch performance.

 

See It. Hear It.

When zooming down the open road with the wind in your face you can’t hear much and you definitely don’t want to take your eyes off the road. That’s why we developed the Visual Alert and Wireless Headset as critical components of the system. Not just afterthoughts.

The Visual Alert is included with the System and can be mounted just about anywhere on your bike for optimal viewing. Its bright LED lights flash when radar and laser signals are detected so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. With adjustable brightness settings, you’ll be able to see it even in direct sunlight without being blinded at night.

The optional Wireless Headset is compatible with most helmets and alerts you to detected radar and laser signals through its flat speaker that sits inside your helmet. With adjustable volume settings, you’ll be able to hear the alerts no matter how loud the ambient noise is. Even if you wear ear plugs!

 

What Else?

A lot! The TPX™’s water resistant construction means that you don’t have to worry about shielding it from the rain. The System comes with a heavy duty Wiring Harness that easily connects to your bike’s power source, making installation a breeze. Large buttons are designed so that you can operate it with riding gloves. Its top-positioned, angled, backlit LCD allows you to actually see the display from your riding position, day or night. Vibration and shock resistant design ensures that it’ll last on your bike. It is portable so you can take it with you on your lunch stop and don’t have to worry about theft. It also means that you can use it on multiple bikes, and even your car (if you have one of those four-wheeled things).

 

Clutch Perch mounting system

With a variety of mounting systems available, there is an Adaptive mount to fit your bike whether you ride a BMW, Honda, Yamaha or Harley (or any other brand).

Vibration is bad. It tends to rattle things out of place and wear things down. Vibration is especially bad when it breaks things that are not designed to withstand it, such as your GPS, cell phone, MP3 player, camera, radar detector or that other expensive gizmo that you have mounted on your bike.

This is why we created the AdaptivMount™. The AdaptivMount™ is specifically designed to minimize the vibration transferred from your bike to your gadget with the patent-pending AdaptiSorb™ Anti-Vibration Technology.

Choosing a mounting system has always been a tradeoff between adjustability, ease of installation, aesthetics, size, and vibrations. With the AdaptivMount™, you get it all.

The double ball-joint design provides a high degree of freedom for optimal positioning, easy adjustment, and simple installation. High strength steel and aircraft grade aluminum components ensure a sturdy connection, while the AdaptiSorb™ Anti-Vibration technology protects your gadgets in a sleek, compact design.

Finally, a mount that does it all!
