    I have a 2014 cbr and like the idea of the pulsating rear brake light . Incorporating the rear indicators in the light is illegal so i was thinking of ideas to add modified rear indicators or some led strips to the rear foot pegs . Has anyone done this?

    you can buy a resistor box that pulsates the rear light when braking.It goes between the wiring and the rear light, and simple to fit.

    Ordered a strobe unit. I think the strobe effect is only illegal if costantly pulses but i am not sure.

    That's a pretty strict tester you've got there Martin.

    Soldered in the strobe unit adding plugs so its a 2min job to put back to standard. The wires are black negative and black yellow brake feed on a 2014 blade. All fits under the pillion seet easily . For a couple of pounds of ebay and a 20mins with a soldering iron its really good.

    My MOT tester is a star. I've the CustomLED rear light and its pulses and has the indicators built in. I don't use the indicator part, but the rear pulsing light gets attention from everyone.. always asking where I got it from. Had cops behind me and they haven't bothered to pull me as yet..

    I also fitted a hidden switch that does this "hazard mode" :)
