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.

Vololights Brakeless Deceleration Indicator 4.5 5 11 11
Does work! It does work. I believe it irritates some of the drivers behind me sometimes. Essentially in Massachusetts it is illegal if you follow the state law. It does the job however. Will see. August 28, 2016
great product This thing works! I ride a 06, 1200 GS the brake light is not so bright. And the deceleration indicator is awesome! People just back off period. June 28, 2016
Great Visibility Add On This is an excellent protection addition to my bike. Install took about an hour - because I knew very little about the electrical aspects. However, this was a breeze to wire up correctly. Calibration was easy and it works as advertised. 2015 Honda Shadow Phantom. Note: license plate wires for my bike were brown = positive; green = negative. May 28, 2016
Easy to install, works great! I just installed a Vololight on my wife's 2013 BMW F700GS and my 2016 BMW R1200GS. Took me less then 2-hours to do both bikes. Access to the 700GS rear license plate light wiring is pretty straight forward. Under the rear fender, unscrew the plastic cover over the tail light wiring. This gives added access and clearance to tap into the license plate lights. The 1200GS is a bit more tricky but not hard. Dropping the plastic frame (2-torx screws) holding the rear brake light, turning lights, and license plate light gives you enough room to feed the two Vololight wires up and under the rear seat so the Vololight wires can easily tap in to the license plate light wiring near the canbus. I did check w/ my BMW dealer to confirm which colored wires are for the license plate light. Suggest you do the same. Calibration of each light was easy. Certainly increases visibility on the road! Before buying the lights from Reveilla I did email to/fro w/ Vololights to confirm the lights would work on each bike. They were super responsive! May 1, 2016
Works as advertised Of course safety is in the hands of the rider but this device does enhance visibility and I do feel some of the cagers are backing off. I feel it was a good investment and I have had no issues with the quality of the product. December 14, 2015
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
