brake light strobe fast slow steady

Got this brake light strobe for only $4.95!

I had to try it since I was replacing my brake bulbs for LEDs and I had seen similar things on the road before.

LED_brake-light_strobe4fast4slow1steady.MPG" class="postlink" rel="external">Brake Strobe Video shows how it looks when pulling the brake lever, first a long braking until lit steady, then short with just fast strobing and next both fast and slow. Finally again all 3 in another long braking. I wanted to be sure it was resetting each time regardless of time braking.

I tried but I can't count the flashes, almost looks like 5 each to me not 4.

Anyway... thought maybe other people undecided about adding this cheap safety feature might like giving this a try themselves. The wiring is simple, incredibly simple on my 750. Seat off, LED side goes to yellow wire of brake light, other side of connecter to other red wire and black wire to black. Oh, but must have LED lights not incandescent FAIK. Those cost much more from the same place, pair for about $26 not including shipping. No idea if there's a better deal out there but here's that red LED with white edges for license plate.
