BackOFF™ XP Brake Light Module

5 Stars

Product Description


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)

  1. Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2015

    Had it installed on my Honda CTX700 DCT and it works great. Quick shipping too.

  2. Attention 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2015

    I am using the brake flasher with a halogen 1157 bulb on a 1981 Harley FLT Classic. The combination of halogen brake light bulb and the BackOFF XP Brake Light Module draws attention to warn those following that I am slowing or stopping. The brake light begins flashing immediately after activating the brakes unlike some units that have a noticeable delay.

  3. old iron gets new twist 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Apr 2015

    I put this unit on my 1937 Indian Chief. The tail light is quite small and I wanted to be noticed when I used the brakes. I have tried several other items that suggest they will be able to accomplish this but they are all imposters. This unit is easy to install and works exactly like I wanted it to by flashing when the brake is applied. I made a little housing for the unit and mounted it behind the license plate bracket so no one can even see it is there. Ordered a second unit for my "modern" bike- a 1945 Indian Chief that I use to ride around the world. Thanks Signal Dynamics.

  4. decent product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2015

    Product works well and as advertised. Be aware that in Mode 1, the flashes are produced noticeably slower than in Mode 2 (faster rate). I have selected Mode 2 as a result due to concern that Mode 1's slower flash rate may not attract the desired attention. This product is being used with OEM lighting and also the Black Classic Dual LED License Plate Frame.

  6. Back-Off XP brake light module 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2015

    Easily installed to my TTR250 and F800GS. Modules operate the bike's brake light and an additional led lamp fitted to the tailbag.
    I have had a couple of enquiries from other bikers, and am happy to give details about the product. It's a pity bike manufacturers don't offer these as an option on their models.

  7. I Love my BackOFF! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2015

    I have installed BackOFF on my last 6 cars. After being rear-ended years ago I wanted something to prevent this from happening again. The product is easy to install and requires no maintenance. With everyone texting and talking on the phone I think the BackOFF is my only defense from being rear-ended.

  8. Star Roadliner 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2015

    Easy installation. Product does exactly what SD claims it will do.
    5 stars if it had 6cm more wire length.
