I just have this story I would like to share with you guys...
Before 919 I used to ride Ducati Monster '06. I used to visit great community forum similar to this one. Every week I used to search thru the forum and look thru post to find interesting parts and stories that people are sharing.
Since I started riding bikes over 15 years ago I was always worried that some not careful car driver would hit me from the back specially when I was waiting on a stoplight. I used to flash pressing the brake just to make myself more visible.
One day on Ducati forum I found that company called Visi-Tec located in California is making the product that actually I'm looking for. Since my style are naked bakes I don't like putting any LEDs and special light to make me more visible I like to keep it plain and naked. This company is making just that, nothing to add extra just a little gadget that sites under need a seat and makes my brake light flash. Even better gadget has a researched technology to make brake flash just a exact number of time to make sure that human-eye would notice it and not make them angry because so much flashing going on. I was amazed and ordered product right away on their website. Product worked perfectly and I recommended to so many friends that had a same fear of being hit from the back. Ever since the company Visi-Tec added more gadgets for so many different bikes but when I purchased my 919 that didn't had one for that model. I emailed them and they ware so kind to make one for my new bike. I just installed today and again it's working perfectly and I'm little releafed that won't be hit from not careful drivers.
I asked the gentleman from Visi-Tec is he planing to add module for Honda 919 in their line and answer was yes. So all of you who has a similar fear can order the gadget from them. I'm also going to purchase one for my father-in-law that has CB600 as soon as it become available. Oh yes installation of the gadget is very easy, just plug and play and no wires to be cut. Witch is very important to me since I'm not so mechanical/electrical person :-). Their website is www.vizi-tec.com and if you don't see module for your bike I would say give them a call. They are very knowledgeable and friendly. Here is a review I made for my first unit I purchased from them.
I know but there is no need for wiring because they told me they are adding product for 919 in the line. It would help if couple of you guys asked them about 919 gadget it may speed up a process on their end as more 919 owners are interested. They made my very fast and I don't know why they didn't showed up in a online catalog that is available for 919.
I think I researched all of those manufactures and that Vizi-Tec makes difference is that modules are "SMART" witch means that doesn't bother drivers behind and only flashes the amount is necessary. If you go fast and you have sudden stop it will flash more. If you have frequent stops in a traffic-jam it won't flash at all. I heard that some riders got traffic violation tickets with some of those chipper modules that ware constantly flashing.
Thanks for the info. They are trying to differentiate themselves with a variable delay activation, and I'm not convinced it is a plus. For example freeway traffic usually has an initial slowdown before it stops, if that occured within 12s their default unit wouldn't flash. I don't like their slimy website LYING about competitors' products!
I have thoroughly enjoyed the added rear safety of my Kisan Tech Brake Light modulator! It powers Electrical Connection's turn signal running light LED rings, top box LED strip, and the Clear Alternatives LED panel! Tail gaters quickly get the message and backoff or change lanes.
