GearBrake Smart Brake Light Module

Hi folks,

Some of you have installed the brake light flasher. Is this the unit you are using? They are on sale cheap!

This is $15.00! It flashes when you apply the brake.
https://gearbrake.com/collections/sh...flasher-module

This is $10.00 (non-flashing) and $35.00 (flashing)! It flashes when you slow down or apply the brake.

This is $5.00! Motorcycle Charging Station

Has anyone used these products? Opinions?

Thanks...

Just ordered! $20 including shipping and tax. Thatís a no-brainer.

If it installs without trouble and it works, wow. Great deal.

If itís a total bomb, I wasted the cost of a pizza. No biggie.

Thanks for the heads-up!

I put a GS-100A ($3 on eBay) on my Vulcan S. Easy install and worked the whole time I had the bike. It was a 3 fast flash, 3 slow flash, then on solid LED brake light strobe. I put a factory connector on each end of the module, so I could just plug it in. Worked nicely. Gonna get another one for my Z900 real soon.

Cool. I was looking at an Admore unit to do this but it was like $250. For the flasher modal and the little laser = $60 bucks CDN
I wish the led tail light was brighter.

I usually hang out in the 500 section, but this thread caught my eye...

I have 2 or 3 of those GS-100A brake light flashers still hanging out in my toolbox. At one point, I ordered 20 for some crazy low price (under $1 each), and quickly sold about 10 at the shop for $5 each (plus installation).

I did order the charging station from the first post on this thread, along with a handful of their flexible LED strips ($1 each), and one of their Vector Redline lasers. Never seen one of those installed and working, so for the $5, I'll check it out.

Thanks for the post, found some cool stuff today!

For 3 to 5cbucks for the relay it seems like a no brainer to me. I'm going to order one! Now the only question I have is where did you guys splice into the original wires at? Got any pics?

I've been looking at the same things. For the price you can't get hurt. I'm going to order some stuff now. Please let us know how it works out for you.

Just installed the $15 module from Gear Brake, but it isnít working correctly.

Brake light pulses when brakes are applied, but doesnít stay on. Run light stays on.

(2010 kawasaki vulcan 900 custom.)

1- turn key
2- run light turns on
3- apply brakes
4- run/brake light pulses a few times
5- run light stays on

In other words, brake light only pulses but doesnít stay on. Run light stays on.

Sent them an email (no other support channels, far as I could tell).

Anyone else set this up?
