BackOFF™ Wig-Wag™ Brake Light Module

5 Stars

Product Description


The BackOFF™ Wig-Wag™ Brake Light Module automatically flashes your dual brake lights to capture the attention of following drivers and to make your motorcycle more visible. 
This module is specifically designed for use with motorcycle's that are equipped with 2 brake lights located side by side. The Wig-Wag™ enables your brake lights to alternate back and forth in a wig-wagging pattern. When installed, the motorcycle's brake light becomes significantly more noticeable because your brake light will flash with your choice of 2 attention getting wig-wagging patterns. This module is designed to work with standard incandescent brake lights, LED brake lights, or a combination of both.

Note: Do not install this module on your turn signals as it can confuse drivers behind you. Also, this module is rated at 10 amps which can generally drive up to (3) standard bulbs, we recommend only connecting it to one pair of brake lights.

Flash patterns when you apply your brakes
Mode 1: Emits a visual signal of 4 alerting quick flashes of the left and right brake lights followed by 3 short flashes of both brake lights. The 4 short flashes automatically repeat as long as the brakes are applied.

Mode 2: Emits 4 alerting quick flashes of the left and right brake lights followed by 3 short flashes of both brake lights in unison. Your brake lights will remain steady on after this sequence while you're stopped.

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™ Wig-Wag™ automatically facilitates compliance and enhances safety. Install the BackOFF™ Wig-Wag™ and see how much more effective your brake light can be!

Cut the wire leading to your right brake light at least 6" behind the bulb, cap the end of the right brake light wire leading toward the front of your motorcycle as we will not use this. Connect the red wire with white stripe to your right brake light wire leading to the rear of your motorcycle. Next cut the wire leading to your left brake light at least 6" behind the bulb and then connect the white wire with red stripe to your left brake light wire leading to the rear of your motorcycle. Now choose from the 2 available modes which one you would like to use. Connect either the red or orange mode wire (cap off the unused wire) to the wire from the left brake light leading toward the front of the motorcycle. Finally tap the black wire onto a known ground wire. You can now secure your module, peel the paper lining off of the double sided adhesive pad and mount the module to a clean, flat surface.

  1. Easy Install... works great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2018

    Received the WIG WAG back off unit and installed it within 20 minutes on my 2016 Goldwing F6B with full LEDs. Instructions are simple, and worked first time. I am not an experienced technician!

    I used the Posi-tap connector products (not included with the purchase) These connectors made the install a breeze and gives me confidence in the reliability of the new connections.

    I did have some questions, prior to purchase. Support was quick to respond and very helpful. Good Customer service... Nice.

    The Wig Wag Unit is quite amazing together with existing the LEDs gets top marks for visibility. Now there is still snow on the ground up here in Canada.... so haven't had my first ride in traffic yet... I'll check back later for my impressions.

    I recommend this product.

  3. well worth it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2017

    I put this on my bike a week ago, a Yamaha FJR 1300, and have found that people notice me much sooner when I put on the brakes or when stopped. The unit also intermittently pulses brake lights when stopped, so I don't have to flash my lights when I see someone coming up behind me anymore. It's a nice solid sealed unit and took me about half hour to install. Motorcycles should come with these from the factory. Well worth it.

  4. Wigwag should be standard equipment on every bike! Takes you out of that sea of tail lights day or night! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2017

    I bought this one as a replacement for my original one that failed after 66,000 miles. Installation was a breeze and I was back on the road in short order.
    The failure mode appears to be no brake lights at all and if this can be changed to normal operation it greatly enhance the safety aspect. I always do a basic lights check so I caught it right away.

    Don't hesitate! Just get one!
