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)

Have had on my motorcycle for 10 years (LED light). Put one on wife's Crossfire (for LED center brake light). 2 seater car w/short rear end, people always stopping too close, this will get more attention. Fellow "Forum" members have used a similar import, but I prefer to spend a little more for an original, made in USA.

Recognize the number of drivers that no longer are attentive to driving. You catch them stopped, coasting and at speed looking into their laps.
I installed a 3rd, high mounted, well as high as you can get it on a '73 MGB GT along with your Back Off device. Installs in a snap and works like a champ. Will be installing on all of by daily drivers and my '71 MG Roadster when I can fabricate a 3rd light. Great product which will keep me and my family a bit safer out there on the by-ways.

We have been using these little modules for some many years and I just purchased another vehicle and would definitely not be without it!
When we got our first ones many years ago there was a big snow storm and people follow too closely so my lovely wife just tapped her brake pedal and the person behind dropped way back-------made it safer.

I installed the Back Off signal on my 2013 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic. Locating the brake light wire under the seat on the Harley requires a test light. Installing the Back Off signal was easy and the module is compact and does not take up much room. The Back Off signal works great. I believe it's a great safety feature.

It is refreshing to receive a product that works exactly as advertised ! Installed on a 2011 Honda CBR250 and 2014 Honda VFR 1200. A no hassle install and works as advertised!
Just remember to get those brakes on early if your in the habit of downshifting and braking close to the stop (module or not)...people need to see that brake light and the flash mode truly does help!

Works as advertised. Motorcyclists need all the help we can get to get the attention of distracted cage drivers. Back-Up augments the bike's brake light in a fashion that cannot help but get the attention of vehicles approaching from the rear.

Gets your attention immediately, I was told. Very simple and easy to install. Good buy for the price and safety. Would recommend to anyone! Looking at other products too.

Installed on my Harley Iron 883. Works just as described. Clear, straightforward instructions made for easy installation. Extremely fast shipping. I received a shipping confirmation literally within 30 minutes of placing my online order. I recommend this product and I recommend ordering from Signal Dynamics.

Wasn't difficult to install and I like the fact that this attracts the attention of drivers behind you. I'm using version 2 which gives 5 flashes bear solid. Hopefully drivers will give me more space.
