25LED-D unit is designed for Goldwing 1800 models with the spoiler LED light-bar.
This is a dual function unit - it powers the LED light-bar with low intensity as a Running Light, and upon brake activation it flashes the light-bar at full intensity.
25LED-D unit mounts under the backside of the trunk lid.
When you apply the brakes the brake light will modulate fast at first then slow down to a solid On over a four second period.
Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) suggests that you pump your brakes at each stop. tailBlazer does it automatically, and by flashing the bulb filament at maximum brightness.
WHAT DO THEY SEE?
As soon as you tap your brakes, drivers behind you will see a rapid flash of the brake lights. This sudden flashing invokes immediate attention.
WHAT WILL THEY THINK?
tailBlazer uses a flash pattern which decays exponentially - a well-recognized deceleration warning. The attention to the initial flashing now changes to a clear recognition that you're beginning to slow down!
Simply flashing brake lights or flashing them on & off will get the attention of drivers behind you, but it doesn't invoke anything else. Every split second of delay in their reaction reduces your safety margin.
The internal circuitry is controlled by a microprocessor. The trigger voltage to begin the deceleration flash pattern when the brakes are applied is set @ 12.1V min. Therefore you may need to have the engine running for brake flash to occur reliably.
The microprocessor can also be programmed to adjust intensity of the Running Light feature. Simply hold the brakes and then turn the ignition on three times quickly. There are two selectable intensities "High" and "Low".
Deceleration flash pattern for the brakes will always be at full intensity.
