The BackOFF™ XP Brake Light Module automatically flashes your brake light(s) to capture the attention of following drivers and to make your motorcycle more visible. When installed, the motorcycle's brake light becomes significantly more noticeable because your brake light(s) will flash with your choice of 2 attention getting patterns. This module is designed to work with standard incandescent brake lights, LED brake lights, or a combination of both (up to 10 amps).
Flash patterns to choose from
Mode 1: Causes your brake light(s) to automatically emit a visual alerting signal of 5 short flashes, followed by 1 steady on light for 4 seconds. This sequence automatically repeats itself as long as the brakes are applied.
Mode 2: Causes your brake light(s) to emit 5 rapid flashes, then remain steady on light as long as you are stopped/braking.
Note: Both Mode 1 and 2 can be used if you have multiple brake lights.
These flash patterns are not random, but have been selected because of their ability to gain and retain following driver's attention. Most states drivers handbooks recommend that you flash your brakes when slowing or stopping. The BackOFF™ XP automatically facilitates compliance and enhances safety. Install the BackOFF™ XP and see how much more effective your brake light can be!
To install, wire the BackOFF™ XP Brake Light Module in-line with your existing brake light wire. Locate your brake light wire and cut the wire into 2 (use a test light or multi-meter to find proper wire). Choose the mode you would like from the 2 available and connect the mode wire (red/white or white/red) to the wire leading to the rear of your bike, and connect the red wire from the module to the cut brake light wire leading toward the front of the bike. Tap the black wire from the module to a ground wire and read instructions below for the optional yellow wire. Finally peel the paper lining off of the double sided adhesive pad and mount the module to a clean, flat surface. (Be sure to cap off the unused mode wire)
Solder connections or use crimp connectors (not included)
Black wire: Ground
Red wire: Connect to brake light wire - leading forward (front of bike)
CHOOSE 1 MODE BELOW (CAP OFF UNUSED WIRE) Connect to brake light wire - leading back to the brake light (rear of bike)

Backoff is easy to install. Even though I still keep a watchful eye on my rear end, I feel more secure with my brake light blinking to catch people's attention coming up on me. Yes, you can tap your brake to signal you are stopped, but it is not as efficient as the back off since you have to remember to do it. I have installed it on every bike I have owned.

I have put one of these of every bike I've owned for the last 15 years. Easy to hook up and much safer.

For some the unit would not perform in mode 1 after the initial test so I shifted to modec2 which worked as advertised. Would have returned item but was in a situation of cut wires, etc so I continued. Installation is rather straight forward.

This is the third bike on which I have installed Back-Off. Two weeks ago a motorcyclist in my town was rear-ended at a stoplight and killed. Made me realize how important Back-Off is, and I immediately ordered two for my two motorcycles, mine and my girlfriend's.

Great build quality. It is compact, so it is little to no impact on the space. Simple and easy instructions.

Easy to install. All you need is your soldering tools to make the installation clean. All Yoy need to hook up are 3 wires which is ground, positive brake signal coming from the bike and wire the last wire to the brake light.
I noticed that the brake lights are more brighter and it catches everyone's attention right away. I would probably purchase another one to install on my personal vehicles third brake light.

Have you ever wanted to pulse your brake lights when coming to a stop fast to warn the drivers behind you, but you know on a bike or even in a car that is not always a safe option. The Backoff Modules will do this for you, just ride and drive normally and the module will do all the flashing for you as you use your brakes. There are options from constant flashing to flashing and being on steady. Either option you choose will greatly improve your visibility when braking. Also these units can be connected to brake lights that are on license plate frames so your normal brake lights will not be changed but your new license plate brake lights will flash giving you more visibility.

This is the second one of these I have installed on different bikes. One under the back fender by the taillight and one under the seat. Fairly easy installation, good instructions, quality product. I like the idea of having options in how it operates the brake light.

Piece of cake to install, works great! Small enough to fit between the frame and the fender under the seat.
