Headlight Modulator

Seem that no company make the headlight modulator for H9, high beam bulb. Any idea / suggest? The drivers are glued to their cells during traffic jams in SF Bay Area.

Three suggestions:
1. Wear Hi-Viz gear, especially the helmet. (This reduced violations of my right-of-way by 3X.)
2. Set your speed so that the time when you can avoid an incursion into your trajectory by stopping overlaps the time when accelerating will work. Be aware of where/when the two zones end and begin so that you can respond quickly. [a]
3. Learn about the weave [b] and use it when approaching potential right-of-way violators who could hurt you. I have seen this to work well.

[a. And when you must evade by slowing/stopping or accelerating, review your assessment of what you had thought workable. Adjust if needed. ]

[b. See V-Tom's posts (in his signature) for links to sites explaining "the weave". ]

Eastern Beaver is good stuff.

Not H9 specific, but maybe this would work: https://easternbeaver.com/Main/Wirin...H4/non-h4.html

Finally installed the Kisan Headlight Modulator today! Hope it is worth my $$$. I had to remove the dashboard and some trims to access the bulb and tie up the device. Suzuki needs to redesign the dashboard so it will be easy to reach in and replace the bulbs!

kisantech has them
search on

P115W-DHL

then specify H9/H7

its listed for Triumph but is what you want. I have it installed on my 2018 and I really like that I can just switch to low beam if I want to defeat the flashing.

Kisan Electronics makes a H9 adaptor you can order.

I've had very good luck with mine. It has been on two Stroms for a decade and works fine. I have an earlier version of the P115W-S-D
