Do the VOLO lights clear the plate light on our bikes?

That is a good question.  I have not seen any post of someone having one yet on a C14.  Based on looking at the photos, I would say "yes" it will clear, with pretty good certainty.

I installed a Supa Brake by Vizi Tec on my Multistrada. It is a flasher and not acelerometer controlled but it is very  interactive and programmable and is plug and play. By interactive I mean that it alters its flashing behavior based on your brake use. I have not had an opportunity to ride with someone behind me to verify that it functions as claimed but if it does I think its a great product.

Silly me, I thought you had it on the Indian, not the fast one!  Anyway, that certainly confirms it fits!  Do you think there is any risk of being cited?  I don't...

I wanted to follow-up this post with my experience with the S2T brake module.  I bought this directly from the manufacturer and had to wait almost a month for it to arrive, since they are overseas.  I should’ve just gone with Amazon and paid a little extra for it.  I did a brake light / tail light conversion on my ‘09 about a year ago ( http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=22821.0 ) and chronicled the install, so I was a little concerned how it would work with in conjunction with this module.  After worrying about how I had everything wired up, I realized that all I needed to do was install it just like the S2T instructions say.  (I am NOT the wiring/electronics wizard that B.D.F. is!)

Install was simple and straight forward.  Took it out for a night ride and it works as it says.  No flicker between shifts.  If I am careful and gradually slow, it doesn’t come on.  If I simply release the throttle, I takes about one second, maybe a little less, to activate.  Essentially, anytime I back off the throttle, it comes on.

All in all, I’d say it was worth the money.   :thumbs:
