    Default Factory brake light strobe?

    Hello all,
    How do I go about getting the factory brake lights to strobe when applying the bake? What do I need to buy? I really like that safety feature
    (2019 RTL)

    Tanks in advance!
    P.W.

    Would I be getting close if I went to Custom Dynamics? If so, what kit would I buy?

    Thanks for your time and help!
    P.W.

    I believe that Custom Dynamics calls their modulator the Magic Strobe.

    Ricz, Thanks for the info.! I do appreciate you taking the time in replying. But since I'm not that good at wiring things up I was looking for a kit that would maybe plug into the factory harness someplace???? Maybe they don't make such a thing??? Anyone else with any other info.?

    Thanks for your time and help!!

    I believe your correct..... But don't see on there site anything that fits an RT. But I certainly could be wrong....they have to make something for an RT........right?

    Not the triple play? That may be more HD style lights Rivico has a S.O.M.A
    (Stay Off My A) to add additional LEDs that modulate. Great on mine, got at Spyderfest ‘15 bargain https://rivcoproducts.com/shop/metric-bikes/somakit/ it allows for a mixed light pattern. Stock lights stay on while stopped & the LEDs will flash (constant or 5s depends on how you wire it up)

    Call Custom Dynamics. I have one of their Magic Strobes on my RT. You can adjust the pattern to what you want; works very well.

    Custom Dynamics doesn't offer a kit for a 19..........I emailed them.

    But I found this kit it fits RT 2010-2016.....Would it work on my 2019???

    I looked at the CD web site and saw that they did not include the RT model and also looked at the Hot Spyder Accessories web site and sat the RT flasher they sell is made by CD and the price is about what I paid for mine a year ago so I called CD to ask, "What's up". The very helpful lady I spoke with said the RT model Magic Strobe was not selling so they discontinued it and HSA is probably just liquidating inventory. She also said they have a universal Magic Strobe but you have to tap into whatever bike's wiring harness which I and a lot of others are not enthusiastic about doing. The strobe HSA is selling looks exactly like mine. I would bet it will work with a '19 RT but why not give them a call, 800-843-5118. CD sells a lot of those 3rd brake lights that mount on the trunk lid but they only come in chrome finish which I don't like.

    Well..... I ordered the one from HSA that fits the RT from 2010-2016 hoping it still is the same wiring harness as the 19.
    If not, you'll see it here in the for sale section.....

    Check *******.Com for another option on plug and play strobe controllers for the brake lights. Works exceptionally well.

    I'm pretty sure Reggie and company carry a plug and play product called Brake flasher module with plug & play OEM harness that requires no personal wire work, like soldering or anything.
    Since they're banned/blocked from being mentioned here. You might just search for that exact phrase

    That's the one, I believe it's for all RT year models as that rear connector hasn't changed., but you could ask them.

    That is the one I installed on my wife's 2018 F3L. I am sure it will fit and work on your 2019 RT.

    I've used this on 2015 RTL with 622 trailer and 4 quick, 2 slow then solid lights gets attention, fairly easy install. Inexpensive and works well.

    All is plug-n-play, No cutting of factory wiring. Depends on which one you want. Right around $80 They are great.

    I have one on my '18 RTL from ******* that works very well. $100, and basically plug-n-play install. 5 or 6 different settings to choose from.
