Default Headlight Modulators

I'm getting ready to purchase a Kriss Headlight Modulator. Have you had any experiences with this or similar products? Thanks

I purchased a comagination headlight modulator 6 years ago . It was very easy to install. It took about 15 minutes. You will find that a headlight modulator is the best way to make your ride as safe as possible. The people driving cars and trucks actually take notice of you. Good luck.

Great way to make the cagers mad at you. You are better off getting improved lighting for safety instead of a gimmick.-------Metalguy

I have had this modulator for 6 years and I have never had a problem with anyone on the road , and I ride primarily in New York state where everyone is nuts. This is a very good thing to have for safety.

+1 on the comagination modulator.

The human eye/brain are very responsive to changes in light intensity, and a person's eyes and thought processes are naturally attracted to a flickering light. I believe a modulated headlight is the by far and away the most effective way to improve your chances of being noticed.

They do get you noticed but they irritate me so much when they're coming at me I refuse to put one on my bike! I wear a bright yellow riding jacket or vest and will go with a light bar!

Kisan also makes a good one.

Some folks here had troubles with modulators from Biker Buddy. I don't know how those issues got resolved but I believe BB updated the product to eliminate the problems.

Thanks much for the comments. I wasn't aware of the Coimagination product...I'll have to look into it.

I never cared for a modulator... prefer light-bar and/or extra lights mounted on the highway bar for more visibility (for me to see at night and so other drivers take notice day or night, too).

But honestly, even if you have a siren and flashing red/blue lights on your bike, most cage drivers will still swear they never saw you... THE BEST SAFETY is staying alert and being defensive / pro-active when riding...

If they tell the cop anything else* the cop will hook them up with handcuffs and haul them off.
