GMax GM54 / GM67 / GM78 Wireless LED Brake Light Kit
Extra Lights are good.
this is a nice little light add for Gmax helmets. I can't say what it will and wont fit in but it works with my G67 very well. the control module installed easily right off of the Break wiring. the light is a little weak in daylight but how much can you expect from a 2 AA cell battery.
The description says it doesn't come with a battery box for in the helmet but the package i received did in fact have a battery box so now I have 2. This is ok, the door is made of thin plastic.

Easy install and worked great, but stop working maybe batteries.
Easy to install, great idea worked great, but has stop working as a brake light might be batteries haven't had time to check. transmitter does interfere with my garage door opener, but not really a problem.

works as advertised. but some helmets come with the light and you have to buy the rf unit. the price is kind of high for something like this. but for the safety aspect, it cant be beat

Great added visibility
When looking at the GMax 78 Helmet I thought it would be better to have the light working with the brakes. I felt like just having the light on, would increase visibility, but could be potentially distracting and people might then ignore the actual brake light, so this added some peace of mind for me.
It was very easy to install on my GS500 by simply popping off the seat. I tried to find a wiring diagram to tell me which wire was which (+/-) I ended up unhooking a connector and using trial and error while sticking the wire ends of the transmitter into the female connections that lead back to the bike and tapping the brake to look for the light to come on.
I tucked the transmitter box beside the brake wires and it was able to slip it under a zip tie that held the brake wires close to the frame so it won't be knocking around when I'm riding.
During daytime it's not as noticeable but I think it is still an excellent improvement.

Very easy installation
The vents next to the LED are tricky to get off. Unsnap them from the bottom, then the top, then slide away from the LED. The wiring clips for the transmitter work, but they're pretty cheap. Might be worth getting some decent ones from a hardware store. As long as you have a wiring diagram to determine which wires are positive and negative to the brake light, it's super easy to install.

I have not used this on the road yet but I'm looking forward to the added safety it will provide this riding season. My husband and my father-in-law also bought one each for their Victory's. We have tested them and are pleased with how they work. Installation into the helmet was easy. The bike a bit more complex for my Harley.

I purchased the GMAX GM78 Firestarter helmet and this light kit at the same time.
I was a bit nervous to start tearing into a brand new helmet to install the kit, but I took my time and used care not to damage anything while installing the kit.
Installation wasn't difficult. Took me about an hour from start to finish.
It's been working flawlessly for about 3 weeks with no issues. My only complaint is with the clips that hold the clear plastic light cover on; they don't really snap too firmly in place. It's never come loose, but I still don't trust it.
