Recently I have been riding after dark a lot and felt that the bike needed more light in the rear. I have a strobing brake light, but the LED taillight strip in the 1800F is not very big and not very bright.




I bought these lights through Amazon and they are constructed quite well and cost about $25 for the pair. These lights are bright when taillights and very bright when brake lights.

The problem is that the manufacturer didn't wire a diode into the brake like circuit so when the taillights were on, the lights flickered. I soldered a (1N4001) diode into the brake light feed wire and that solved the problem. The manufacturer would have had to spend about 4¢ on the diode.
