Annoying as hell----not widely enough used to be understood by motorists, or even cyclists----maybe not the best idea for folks who do not like to draw attention to themselves---very non-traditional...............NEVERTHELESS, extremely effective in turning you from invisable to visible. WHAT IT IS: THE HEADLIGHT MODULATOR. Gotta go that route. Just from my own experience, based on my own reaction to seeing one there is no question in my mind that they WORK. Your eyes are involentarily drawn to a modulating headlight no matter how far away. A cursury scan of the distant horizon and your eyes will lock on a modulating headlight immediately. Thats enough for me. As they become more common accidents and injurys involving motorcycles are going to come down. Period. I know though, they remain a polarizing topic. Would welcome comments and opinions. Lets see what others have to say.

I put a headlight modulater on Both my VTX1800C AND my Wife's XV1100 Virago.

Let me add, YESS, They really do work. And they flash from low beam to high beam 4 times a second, and no, it does not reduce your headlight bulb life.

I believe they should be standard equipment on all bikes. Some other motorists may consider them annoying, but I DON"T CARE!
Some people pull over, thinking you're an emergency vehicle. Hee-Hee!
Yes they are legal now in all 50 states.
And mine was real easy to install

Next I want to put in modulating tail lights!

You wave and I'll wave back. (;^)

Yeah! They won't shorten the bulb life at all. They don't go,..ON,OFF,ON,OFF,...They go LOW,HIGH,LOW,HIGH. and,they don't strobe after dusk,

I got mine here. click--->

Boys, I'm tellin' ya, Everyone should get one.

Installing it was as easy as spittin'. Took 10 minutes. :rolleyes: that modulator put in and working:) Thanks for that link!!

NO PROBLEM. Thats what I'm here for!;)

Happy Riding! :D
