Vololights License Plate Frame

When it comes to slowing down, motorcyclists do not always use their brakes. This can cause a potentially dangerous situation for drivers/riders behind you who are watching your lights and not your speed. Vololights solves this problem by detecting deceleration by any means via a 3 axis accelerometer. Whether you are using engine braking, downshifting or simply applying the brakes Vololights senses the change and speed and communicates your rate of deceleration to fellow drivers/riders through variable flashing brake lights, giving a clear indication of the urgency with which you are slowing down. So whether you are downshifting to take a turn or slamming on the brakes to avoid hitting a turtle, Vololights has your back.

Easy to install, and works great I installed the Vololight on my Brutal. The installation and instruction are pretty straight forward. No issues at all. Actually looks pretty good too. October 12, 2015
Great safety enhancement! Works ad advertised and I can notice cars keep a greater distance! Looks OEM on my K1600! September 7, 2015
Nice added safety feature I ride a Tuono V4R, before installing the VL cars would get dangerously close to my tail when engine braking. My wife once was following me in the car, and she too got scared because she did not pick up fast enough how rapidly the bike slows down when just engine braking. I normally hit the brake lever a couple of times to flash the back light and signal that I'm slowing down, but this is not overly safe, so I decided to give the VL a try. Installation was pretty easy, I used the no-longer-necessary license plate light to power up the unit. The only thing I would complain about is that the description of the expected light flashing patterns during installation is not too clear in the instructions. Basically you should: - insert the plate in the VL, close the top, pull the wiring through and connect it to the bike - power up the unit, still not bolted on to the bike plate holder - put it in a vertical position - tilt up, you will see the intermittent slow flash, alternating between top and bottom light - keep tilting up to a horizontal position - at a certain point the flashing pattern will change to a fast one - if you are able to see both patterns, you're good. When you're done with this, turn the bike power off, and install the plate firmly to your bike. At this point, you're ready for calibration. Here's what the instructions missed in my opinion: when you are ready to calibrate, you put the bike on a flat surface and hold it vertically, turn the power on, and the lights will start flashing rapidly. This is ok, it's just an indication that you need to do the first setup using the magnet. I did not understand this from the instructions and thought that something was wrong. I was not expecting any flashing at all, this threw me off. All is good, follow the instructions, use the magnet, and you're good to go. Cars are staying further away from me now, this is excellent. Instructions aside, the product works well, highly recommended. June 16, 2015
Cars backs away from me.. Before installing this product, I noticed that cars behind comes real close to me when stopping.. Now, I can see that they are slowing down and moving further away every time I decelerate without hitting the brakes. It just takes time for me to figure out how to make it in stealth mode. I followed the instructions many times and it seems like it did not go through stealth mode. so I give up and kept it into default settings. but ill try to play with it next time What matter is... it's working. Installing is not that bad. you may need to shave the plate a little bit for it to fit. other than that. its working. December 7, 2014
Works great It was easy to install on my 2014 Triumph. Lights up every time it detecting deceleration. October 1, 2014
Will not work properly with BMW C600 Sport I purchased one of these plates from VOLOLIGHTS directly several months ago. First, with the BMW CAN-Bus, you CANNOT connect to the license plate light, but must run a fused line from the battery directly. Even still, after calibrating and re-calibrating it, I cannot get the product to perform as advertised. I am in communication with Vololights re: my difficulty, and so far, the best solution seems to be to wait until early 2015 when they expect to have a version for CAN-Bus available. In the meantime, it works when brakes are applied, but not independent of brakes. Doesn't seem to sense the off throttle slow down on its own, until the brakes increase the rate of decrease.

WILLIAM DAVIDSON J: Safety is of prime importance to me. Jul 29, 2015
Alex I: I use my engine brake a lot, even when riding in traffic, and I see cars behind me coming too close. I usually hit the brakes lightly a couple of times just to flash the back light. I like knowing that this product will do the work for me, because who knows, I might forget to tap on my brakes just when I happen to have a distracted cager behind me. Extra lights also don't hurt.

A S: Kevin S, Jesse from Vololights here.

Vololights will stay on for as long as the deceleration event is occurring plus two seconds after. If an acceleration event is measured at any point, the lights will turn off immediately.

A S: Jesse from Vololights here.

A great resource is the 3rd product image on the Revzilla page that shows actual dimensions of the product.

While it is difficult to confirm individual motorcycles, from stock images of the Primavera it appears there is enough clearance above the fender to fit.
