Default Headlight modulator

Since I am on it... Is there any headlight modulator available for the ST1300 (2012) ?

Yes, Kisan Technology makes a good one (and a brake light modulator too).

Check them out: http://kisantech.com/

They also make a Remote Tire Pressure Monitor.

Comagination is another choice http://www.comagination.com/ and last time I checked they were about 1/2 the price of the Kisan. Avoid the Kriss units or any other unit with a design that plugs into only one of the bike headlight circuits to power both bulbs. The circuit wiring and fuse is only sufficient to power one headlamp from each circuit. The Kriss was causing blown fuses on my ST1300 so switched to a Comagination one and never had another issue.

I can't help myself, ( I know this has been debated plenty with passion from both sides ) but for some reason those words (Headlight Modulator) make my blood pressure rise and somehow I get angry.

Much like my response when I see a bike or any vehicle for that matter equipped with one.

I just want to take a claw hammer to the damned things ( The flashing headlights themselves, not the modulator or the vehicle owner )

Well, I'm learning every day, I wasn't aware such an item existed, why would you want one? Is it to save electric?

+1
They are the first step in inciting road rage, especially from behind.
What is next ? Modulators on cars and trucks?
Yellow revolving beacons on the riders helmet would be a better choice in my opinion than flashing headlights at oncoming vehicles and at the tail end of a leading vehicle. YMMV
Write your congressman for stricter laws on texting, reading, and anything that distracts the driver.

Using Headligth modulator is suppose to make a motorcycle more evident to other road user. It is a visual stress for many other road user also . . . no idea if it have the same effect on the electric circuit . What it will do with time of use to the expensive and hard to get to ,charging system

Supposedly a study was done to determine what frequency of modulation would make a person involuntarily look in the direction of the modulating light source. I think they work well and I never had any related road rage incidents in many, many years use. Before I installed the modulator, I used to run around in the daytime with the high beams on - that did seem to piss off some drivers.

Now that I'm running the HIDs I no longer use a modulator as they're not compatible.
