I can think of one reason. The law. Oklahoma law requires the brake light to stay on steady. The back off unit never stays on steady. The flashing part is fine but not the repeat function.wrenched said:I don't understand why someone would want to defeat the purpose of the unit by wanting to disable the continuous "repeat" feature.
Its not the part that it does not turn off completely. Its the fact that it will not stay on, non-flashing, that is not legal. All the other brands stop flashing after a period of time and stay on steady until the brakes are released, then applied again.jmac00 said:we have the "backoff" also, to be honest with you, on this particular matter, I'll take the ticket~~~~~
any cop with a half an ounce of brains would never issue a ticket solely for a "flashing tail light". ( well maybe they would but I don't care, I'm not taking off or disabling it )
not to be a smart a$$, but isn't there a distinction between "flashing" and "modulating"
Flashing means the light comes ON and turns OFF completely and then comes back ON
modulating means the light come ON and then "dims" but does not turn off completely and the comes back ON
therefore ACCORDING TO THE LAW, the "BACKOFF" is not 'illegal' because it does not turn off completely~~~~~
just asking ( and guessing )
:shock: hey wrenched....that means I need to come and see you , guess I'll be crusi'n down Tuscon way soonwrenched said:Come to my shop in Tucson, Arizona and I will install one of these life saving units on your bike for free. Every bike that has come to my home shop gets one.
I don't understand why someone would want to defeat the purpose of the unit by wanting to disable the continuous "repeat" feature.
