How to attach Brake light pulser?

Hi gang. I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone can tell me the easiest way to install one of those brake light pulser devices without ripping the entire back of the bike off?

Cheers
Paul

Get the tailBlazer from Kisan Electronics and it's just a matter of changing the bulb. Takes less than a minute!

My glove size is XXL and it still took less than a minute. Maybe I did it wrong....

It's not actually necessary to remove anything but the seat and maybe a side panel to install a tail light modulator. The wires are pretty accessible. and the brake modulators offer you more options.

I just walked out to my bike to check which would be easier. I understand the comment about needing small hands to change the bulbs now.

My Vee came to me with one installed, I've got big mitts, and I've removed and installed it at least twice in the course of sorting out a stupid cheap intermittent bulb. Just pop the seat, remove the tools in the way, and reach in...

The TailBlazer, what an interesting idea. Which of those bulbs fit the Glee?

I just took mine apart when I added my photons and admore, It made it easier to install the EB wirekit...Of course I forgot to link the 2 wires and another Stromtrooper told me my brake light wasn't working. I unplugged the EB and plugged in the stock wire without disassembly, I have the scars to prove it.

It can be done but its frustrating for me so I just take 5 min to make space.

You can also get a breakout cable from Jim at Eastern Beaver.

Get a wife with small hands/long fingers...it's easy then.

Oh, wait, you wanted to do it inexpensively...never mind

I put an Admore light bar on the Vee last year, and with the Givi trunk mount plate, etc. on it it was a challenge with my sausage fingers. wound up using a fish tape and tapped the wires using Posi-taps.

Yes, I have the scars as well...
