I have been looking into adding a flashing strobe type brake light to my Roadmaster. The canbus electrical system has made it impossible for most manufacturers to have a compatible product. My dealer has Hyperlight Kits and I broke down and had them installed which typically I do myself but am concerned about the incompatibility factor. I had them installed on the flat black frame on the bottom of the tour pack. They are inconspicuous when not lit but really stand out when running and particularly when brake is applied. Great safety addition to the Roadmaster.

can you post a video and pics?
I too have been wondering what to add to that black plate under the tour pack
I was thinking of something along the same lines - and even addition turn signals

I had Hyper-Lites installed on both sides of my license plate several months ago and love them. They double my turn signals and brake light with BRIGHT LED's! I really believe that the blinking brake light gets drivers attention, but I still get nervous at stops in traffic and keep my eyes on the mirrors.

I installed Hyper-Lites on my 2017 and 2021 RoadMaster. They work fine. I tapped into the wiring on the Trunk.

TonyQuag, I really like the installation of your Hyper Lights. Can you please give me some detailed info on the installation and wiring?

Did you ever look at Custom Dynamics?

Hi guys, has anyone checked out custom Dynamics. They have plasma rods, and bag lights which you can hook up as stop,turn, brake, and you can also wire in a flashing brake module.
Just throwing that out there.

Hey Zig-Zag,
I did a special ordered from Hyper Lights, "wire exit the top". I wired them into the plug on the trunk side of the connector.
Black is "Ground"
Yellow/Red ??
White/Orange ??

I don't remember which wire color is "Brake" and which is "Always on"
But it's easy to find with a voltmeter or a 12vdc light.

Hi, Got the Hyper Lights installed but have a question. With the ignition on, should the Hyper Lights be lit?

OK. I screwed up. I thought I was ordering the v32 running lights kit ($93.95). Go to their website and read the product description.

Thanks for your help.

I added Custom Dynamics run-brake lights to the trunk and brake lights/turn signals and love the extra but while cleaning out the garage I found a set of Hyper lites I bought for my Triumph Trophy years ago and never got around to installing.

Do you guys remember how the wiring went for you? I'm thinking of adding these to make it really get someone's attention.
