Topbox Brake Light flash Module
 
I would like to upgrade my topbox OEM brake light to flash when the brake is applied. Anyone have technical advice on how to accomplish this?

Topbox Brake Light flash Module??

There are several options available. If you're ONLY interested in making the top box flash I'd go with the Skene IQ-260. The 260 will convert the top case light to a run/brake/flash when braking and led's will flicker all the time. For a few dollars more the IQ-260-D will do the same as the 260 but add flashing when you decelerate.

Skene or Viz-Tech will do the job.

With the Skene, you can also make the bikeís tail light flash with the top box and you can add additional skene lights at the license plate that will also flash.

I went with a very inexpensive GS-100A module that someone else on the forum had used. Easy-peasy and works great for the eye catching quick flash when brakes are applied. Not fancy, no turn indicator, just 4 quick flashes, 4 slow flashes, then solid brake light. It tucks in right behind the factory brake light insert in the top box.

With this post am I correct in assuming that if I add a plug and play unit such as the Viz-Tech it will have the same effect on the topbox light as the bike main unit. In other words it will effect both units the same?

How did you wire it in? On the wires leading into the brake/light insert?

Yes, it includes a wire to connect to the top box to flash both.

Clearwater Lights have brake lights which can be tied into the top case light. More expensive than some of the options listed but if you plan on Clearwater Lights of some kind for the front anyway it might make sense.
