As motorcyclists, we know we are invisible, especially to an inattentive or distracted driver – if they don’t see you, they can just knock you down. That’s why I want to be more like a fire truck when a 3,000-pound distracted driver doesn’t slow down to stop behind me. The 18th edition of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Motorcycle Operator’s Manual states, “Help others notice you by flashing a brake signal before you slow down.” That’s where Kisan Electronics TailBlazer comes in.
When unexpected situations happen and I need to slow down quickly, I’m sure I’m prepared for distance, speed and ability. However, I intentionally don’t add space and drive slower wherever I go so I can take into account the extra distance needed in order to fully release the brakes several times to trigger the brake signals. However, I also don’t want to be back.
Kisan Electronics TailBlazer is an electronic flashlight brake plug and works that is legal in all 50 states and most of the world. TailBlazer device made in the USA, compatible with The ultimate motorcycle The Yamaha Ténéré 700 Project Bike (110HD-YZ3) is a $ 90 recommended security investment.
Kisan manufactures TailBlazers for most brands and models of motorcycles. Some are easy to connect to the brake light chain, others are a simple replacement for the brake light bulb, and some take a little extra time to connect the brake wires. They all come with easy to follow instructions and I found the Kisan customer service very good.
It took less than 10 minutes to install the Yamaha version on the Ténéré 700. I removed a few screws from the body panel so I could shove my hands inside to get to the connector specified in the instructions. I detached the taillight connector and added a TailBlazer to the circuit. At Ténéré 700 it’s that simple.
I started the engine and pressed the front brake to see the six brake flashes slowly, after which a steady brake signal lit up. TailBlazer installation varies depending on the motorcycle model, and they are all designed to be installed by hand. If you are not comfortable working on your motorcycle, the one who changes the oil will be happy to install it for you.
Unfortunately, drivers don’t always pay attention to the road. There are many ways to make yourself more noticeable, and this is very important. Every time someone on the road sees a flashing brake light, it has the same meaning – the vehicle in front of me stops. Kisan Electronics TailBlazer won’t forget to blink every time you use the brakes, especially for the driver behind you who is dreaming or distracted.
