Vololights VoloMod Underseat Module
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.
- Under seat or other 'black box' mounting
- Use stock brake or signal lights, no additional lighting included
- Brake lever actuated flashing at stop lights for increased visibility
- 12VDC although slightly more advanced installation
Note: Does not work with CANBus electrical systems. See vololights.com for install instructions.

Reviews & Questions
For extra fun points, if you have your turn signal on while engine braking, the volomod will cause one turn signal to hyperflash while the other blinks at a normal rate. As you can imagine, this isn't good when you're trying to slow down and signal a turn in traffic. Now your turn signals are unintelligible on top of the problem I mentioned above.
Alternatively, you could just wire the thing into your brake light so it turns on the brake light when you're engine braking. This is easily understandable by drivers behind you and also doesn't require severing your hazard light wires. I would go this route. Unfortunately your brake light will stop flashing as soon as you actually touch your brakes, but at least they'll have warned the car behind you that you're engine braking. But then $120 for an accelerometer to turn on your brake light is a bit steep, and for that much money I can just learn to drag the rear brake slightly when engine braking.
In short, just skip this and buy one of two things:
Option A: Several manufacturers make LED taillights that have a built in flasher that will blink the taillight when you first put the brake on. These are fantastic and I put one on my wife's bike instead of dealing with the volomod and its problems.
Option B: Depending on exactly what taillight bulb your bike uses, you may be able to use a LED bulb with a built in flasher to create the same effect as Option A for less money. For my bike I got one of these bulbs from SuperBrightLEDs and I've been quite happy with how well it works. For $20, I'd get that over the volomod any day.
At a full stop it flashes the turn signals like hazards with the brake lever pulled. With a turn signal on it works like it did before installing it when at a stop.
While riding it flashes the running brighter and turn signals when engine braking or downshifting. Slow for a slow braking and very fast for heavy braking. When using the brake lever the brake light pulsates and the turn signals flash. When braking with a turn signal on it works the same but the turn signal is brighter.
All in all very effective.
A side note: the online instructions that you have to use are a little confusing. "Switch 12v" and "brake Signal" are two different wires, "running lights" and "brake switch" would have been a lot easier to understand. Thankfully it comes with Posi-tap connectors so you can switch it easily. Also listed the #7 wire instead of the #1 which became clear when installing it.
I did hard-wire mine by soldering it in, although I tend to do most things in an over-engineered way. The installation clips they provide probably work, but I wanted to make sure I did not ever have to re-do my work.
My installation took about 2.5 hours because 1) the directions are a step above IKEA, and were even telling me to use the wrong wire vs. the picture they provided me...2) I was very particular in how I did this. I have a few other things that I wired in (fog lights, voltmeter, hazard lights) and wanted to make sure I pulled the power off of a switched power source vs. always on.
Clearly the cost of this is worth it in my mind. I'd always pay extra to stay safe. Hope this helps!

I got the module from Revzilla, as always, extremely fast. We to splice into my wiring harness as needed and got everything hooked up in about 20-30 minutes since I took my sweet time making sure everything was right. Turned it on and the module was not working as described on the install instructions. After double checking my wiring, I sent an email to Vololights and within an hour, yes AN HOUR, I was on the phone and FaceTime with one of the CEOs from the company trying to diagnose what was wrong.
Turns out I had a defective module so they sent me a new one and had it delivered within like 3 days. At this point, this is by far the best customer service I've ever had. The guy was literally walking me through the install, step by step, and double checking everything for me.
The second module worked perfectly, save for the brake light flashing when the lever is pushed in when completely stopped, but that is something to do with the amount of volts coming out of my harness, not the module. Other than that, it works perfectly, lights flash when I downshift coming into a turn and when I break hard due to the accelerometer.
The CEO is even working on a modification for my bike that will allow the module to work as fully intended (which to me isn't a big deal because I bought this to make my lights flash when I close my throttle or downshift, which it does).
Overall, it's a great idea with an amazing backup in Vololights, but there's always room for improvement.
Teck support is as good as it gets.
The price is right and even the packaging is first rate.
Cons: CANbuss systems limit the tricks it can do but still good.
This is not a 10' plug and play device, be prepared to put in some time but it's not difficult, just time consuming taking things apart and reasembling.

I have a Aprilia Dorsoduro and it has a CANbuss Electrical system so I will be isolating it from the bikes electrical system. I am in Florida for two more weeks and the bike is in Canada so it will be a month before I have it installed but I don't anticipate any problems. You may want to check if yours is CANbuss and act appropriately. Faisal at Volo is most helpful. Robert
