TURN SIGNAL AND BRAKE FUNCTION TOGETHER, FOR XV1100

Post by ViragoJoe » Thu May 21, 2015 8:53 am

This T/Signal Brake function can be incorporated into other models not just the XV1100.
Note: The T/Signal lenses must be red for braking purposes. Red lenses can be found on the internet and there is special paint to coat the amber lenses to make them red.

If you wish to have running lights as well. Mount front T/Signals to the rear of your bike and connect the running light wire to the harness going to your rear fender running light wire.

Unfortunately, and I regret to say that Photo Bucket no longer allows free links to their site to show images and or videos without upgrading to there very costly upgrade. We will, however, try to find alternative means to get videos to play. Sorry, about the inconvenience. Stay tuned.

Should work now switched to "Vimeo":

Please Note: Horn relays purchased and used for this function may have their pig tail wire colors in different locations. The pig tails can be removed and placed in any location using a paper clip straightened out. Pressing it into the relay socket the pig tail can be removed or relocated.
