Worked out really nice unit for the $. I found a connector company on the internet to find plugs for my bike so I didn't have to hack into the factory harness because I couldn't find a prebuilt one but this controller was easy to wire up and works great. Love the flashing light feature and seems to get peoples attention better than a steady brake light.
The hardest thing about the install was finding the wires under the seat. On a Stratoliner the wires on the bike are very short which caused the installation to take a little longer than I expected. This mod is a MUST for Stratoliners as the rear running light is very hard to see at night. Other brand on market does NOT include the load balancer so this is a great deal!
hooked up on my 03' road star and only function i could get to work was a brake light. called MFG and they were NO help. unplugged all the connections threw controller in saddlebag and all is working now. ended up getting 2 4-wire trailer wire connectors to fix all the wires i had to cut and splice under seat to replace the factory single plug for wiring to rear fender. UNHAPPY with this purchase
Hooked the unit up as per instructions. Also hooked up the low heat load equalizer, as per instructions. It worked great for about 1 week, then it stopped working and left me with no lights in the back of the bike at all. Checked all connections and all were secure. Disconnected unit and went back to stock setup. I would not recommend this for anyone with the Yamaha Star Raider.
