Brake light modulator

I have designed a brake light modulator that is plug and play. Simple 4 wire hook up. Brake switch wire has male bullet connector. Brake light wire has female bullet connector. 12V wire, and a ground wire. Let me know what you think.

If that would work on my 1800F with the factory LED brake light, I would be seriously interested in it!
I've avoided the brake light flashers just because I haven't seen an option for a reasonable price. I've just gotten into the habit of flashing my brakes on my own every time there is someone approaching me when I'm stopped.

Yes, it should work with the factory LED light. My module handles the incandescent bulb on the 1300 which draws about 2 amps. But it actually should handle at least double that. I'll get a picture of the module up soon. It is a real easy hookup. Is the brake light connection behind the side cover on the 1800. Let me know for sure so I know what length to make the brake wire. What do you think of the flash rate? What about the amount of times it flashes. Im open for suggestions. It's programmable, so I can adjust that. I'm charging $16 for the module.

Sounds like a deal. Yes, the connections are behind the right side cover. As far as the flash rate, I think it's fine. Does it continue cycling the flashes, or only right when you activate the brakes?

It does three quick flashes 3 consecutive times, and then light goes on steady After brakes are applied.

I bought one of your earlier models last year. You had a little "production" issue with sealing the plastic wrap around the circuit board. Is that issue corrected?

Yes SeaSteve, it will be water tight. Nice weather proof bullet connectors for the brake light/brake switch connection as well.
