Clear Alterntive install questions

I am looking at the clear alternative tail lights, and seems you need a flasher relay to slow the pace of the blinking. Those of you that have done this install, how difficult is it to wire this thing up?

Its not bad at all...just plug in the taillight and i soldered the turn signal wires to the stock ones. I didnt slow the flash rate,the faste rate doesn't bother me!

Did you have to cut into the wire harness?

There should be connectors supplied. You can simply splice them together. No need to cut into the wire harness. Just crimp them together.

I also like the faster blink rate. I think because a bike reacts so fast it is easier for other motorists to notice you.

When I soldered the wire i left it in one piece and just removed a section of insulation with my razor knife..then i wrapped the new wire around just a little and soldered it!

Sounds interesting, I will have to see what the instructions say when I get them in, seeing it will probably give me a better idea of what I am trying to figure out.

I ordered the original plugs, installed them onto the clear alternatives pigtails and just plugged right into the original tail light harness. Emoto has them instock, they are cheap. No damage to anything and instantly reversable.

Do you have a link for these plugs?

I installed this on my Brutale and the Senna. Very simple, I took the stock turn signals apart and unplugged the stock wires and used them. I have no intentions of putting stock turn singnals back on so, this was simple and no cost involved. I put clear lens on the front of the Senna and leds on the Brutale, makes for a nice clean look. I changed the flasher on the Senna but, not the Brutale. I think it is under the tank and I didn't want to take it apart till rain season started here. The Senna was easy, just plug in the new one. I actually like the faster flash of the Brutale and may change the Senna back. Very easy and worth while upgrade.
