    Anyone know what happened to the company making the LED brake light that flashes and has different programs that plugs right into the Adv?? The company is called Brake! and Touratech, blackdog and KTM twins use to carry them but now they all say there on permanent back order...????

    Wazzup? I need one of those things! anyone got one they wanna sell, or know how to get one??

    :wink:

    Iv'e seen both of those and might settle for one them. The Brake! light is just such a nice all in one package that goes in your tail light shell nice and clean. Wow The hyper light looks BRIGHT AND FLASHY!!!!!!!:evil

    How did you wire those up?
    I just remembered why I didn't install the hyperlites.
    It seems you have to cut into the rear wiring to splice in under the rear fender :dunno didn't want to get all into that when the bike was new.

    No cutting of the harness, I installed a set of hyperlites on the 950 and it uses those positap connectors. Very simple installation. Great product.

    3 wires run up the middle of the rear fender. You have to tap into the wiring for any of these solutions. It's straight-forward. Very bright and very visible. A couple of my friends installed it on their bikes after seeing mine on the road.

    I've still got one leftover from the pair I bought. Testimonials from fellow riders is that it's much brighter than the Brake!! The standard 21W globe still fits in there so you get the normal light plus the attention grabbing blink affect. PM me if you want any details. This mod cost me $51. $50 for the light, and $1 for the Tecate I drank to use the aluminum from the can to patch the hole I made in the top of the light. 8000 miles on this mod.

    In this video, check the last few seconds where you can see all the bikes from the rear. The SE has a Brake! light fitted, compare to my bike on the right.
