Thanks for the information. It does not fit a 2019 Chieftain Limited. These guys say they are close to having one.

Thanks. I appreciate it. I'll check them out. Army aviation is a small world. I'm a helicopter mechanic. Also USA retired.

I am using this flasher on my 2019 Chieftain Dark Horse but it’s wired up to two external LED lights. The flasher unit itself only works on models with the center brake light and with other lights you wire to it.

Thanks for your service and "attention to detail" which is probably why I am still alive and kicking after my long aviation tour. Always make friends with your mechanics....

I was following a friend Saturday that was riding a 2020 Street Glide and HD has the same tail/turn signal lights that the 2019/20 Chieftains have and it was hard to see the LED brake lights during the day. The low mounted position could also be an issue. I hope they get these brake light flashers completed for the 19/20 models soon as I feel my rear end is exposed......

Thanks. I'm checking up on another product thehueypilot told me about.

Did anyone ever get a brake light flasher to work on a stock 2019 Chieftain? I got this response back from Bernard at vizi-tec a few days ago.

"Yes it has shipped. But still waiting for feedback from customers. I shipped 3 last week. One of which was for a 2019 Chieftain Limited.
Still waiting...I think it should be OK. If you are interested place an order. I'll ship in within a week and will contact and refund or give you update if longer."

I just tried out the prototype that Bernard sent me for my wife’s 19 Chieftain Limited. Unfortunately it did not function.

If someone in Northern California has a bike with the same two light setup, Bernard needs to check the timing of the circuit to get his product to function.

I’m happy with them as they add a lot of light to the rear of the bike which was my end goal. Wiring them wasn’t hard, I took my time, used soldered connections, and installed quick disconnects since the rods are attached to my saddle bags.
I posted pics in another thread about Custom Dynamics.

Are you happy with the plasma rods? Would you be able to post or send photo of them installed? How was installation process?

Tagged, since I need this flasher as well. I tried the Custom Dynamics since my Indian dealership said they would work. Of course, when I took them back they said “Oh, those don’t work on the 19 & 20 Chieftains”.

The latest from Bernard is that he will have to put plans for this bike on the shelf until he can get his hands on a bike to test. He is located in Northern California.

Any updates? You would think by now someone out there would make one for 2019/20/21 Indian Chieftains or Roadmaster?

The problem is with Indian. According to the engineers at Custom Dynamics, the new style tail lights are not consistently wired across all platforms. Some have a “ground” activated switch and others have a “positive” activated one. They cannot account for multiple variables hence why they don’t offer a product for the new style tail lights.
That being said, if you are electrically inclined you could test your tail light connector with a multimeter to find out how your bike’s lighting is activated. Then you could rewire the flasher plug to make it work. But that’s not guaranteed as CD won’t change their circuit boards to account for negative, ground, and positive activations changes.
