Iíve been looking for a brake light modulator for my bike, but really wanted something that was a little more intelligent than the ones commonly available. My search brought me to the Vizi-Tec
website. The product was exactly what I was looking forÖ
It was smarter: It didnít just continuously blink the same annoying pattern indefinitely as long as the brake was activeÖ which can become annoying quickly to whomever is behind you, and in some cases create target fixation. Some modulators have a blink pattern that only repeats a certain number of times , and then stopsÖ which is better, but if youíre in stop and go traffic, every time you release the brake the modulator resets and repeats the pattern all over again when the brake is activated againÖ again leading back to the annoyance factor. Not only that, but I felt that patterns that repeat continuously donít tell the driver if your suddenly slowing, or at a complete stop, if itís just constantly flashing. Anyway, the Vizi-Tec modulator addressed all these concerns (you can read more about the modulators logistics here
It was better: Mainly because itís sooooo freaking easy to install. No wiring, no fuss - no muss. It snaps right in to the brake light connection of your bikeís wiring harnessÖ no electrical know-how necessary (it was as if they designed it with me in mind!).
I was sold!Ö there was only one problem: they didnít make one for the FZ-6. I emailed the company inquiring if they had any plans to make one for the FZ and after a few emails and pictures of my bikes brake light connection, they had one made! They even gave it to me for free for my trouble!!! SWEET!
Iím really happy with it, and it works like a charmÖ I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to add the safety of a brake light modulator without having to mess with the wiring of your bike.
Here are the installation instructions (just to illustrate how stupidly easy it is):
Step1: Remove side cover
Step2: Locate brake light connection
Step3: Disconnect brake light connector
Step4: Snap Vizi-Tec brake light modulator into existing connectors
Step5: Bundle it all back up and replace side cover
Step6: Kick back and enjoy
