What taillight do I have?

When I bought my bike, it has a taillight that when you turn the key on, it would go through a quick demo. Like it would flash red and yellow (it's behind the factory red lense, but it's an LED assembly that's been installed inside).
When I hit the brake, it flashes rapidly for a second then stays on solid. And when I turned on the turn signals, it would blink red rapidly.

Since I installed the power programmer, and grounded the gray "demo" wire to show off the taillight to a coworker... Now my taillight blinks yellow and slower for the turn signals, and it not longer does the demo when I turn it on.
I'm thinking that while messing with that gray wire, I have programmed it to act differently.

I'm hoping to find out what it is, so I can look up the instructions online and see what else it's capable of.

Thanks

Sounds like you have a Custom LED unit in there.

Sounds like what my CustomLED does. When did you buy your bike? I thought you had yours before the CustomLED design and group buy.

The custom led logo should be printed right on the board

Go to Custom led's website. What you are describing sounds very similar to how they instruct you to program the light, talks about the gray wire and grounding to for the program sequence.

I bought the bike from Poorboy last September/October

I didn't take the light apart, was hoping I could be lazy about it, and it worked!

Will do, thanks.
When he sold me the bike, he just showed me how if you ground the wire while the bike is on, it goes into a demo mode. I figured it was just for showing off at shows or something.

If the switch is somewhere accessible, you can use it to get a drivers attention who might be busy talking on the phone, being absent minded, or inhaling a donut.

Well that's a Custom led light for sure. Gray wire grounded puts it in demo mode. The website has step by step instructions.
