coocase brake lights
« on: August 23, 2011, 09:37:50 pm »
has any one improved the wimpy  brake lights on their coocase? I don't want a "add on",but use the lenses on the box. Could be adding more leds to whats there.

Yes, it's been done.  Surprisingly, I found the link : http://burgmanusa.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=37458

If mine were working I would replace them....... Not overly happy with the install I got at Americade.  Going to dig in there and redo the wiring.

Double check that the case sits all the way down flat on the base plate.  If you have any warpage in the rack, it can cause the electrical connector contacts to have intermittent contact.

The other issue I have found is the solder connections on both sides of the connector needed to be resoldered.

That's all just in case the wiring has been connected correctly.

Thanks for the info. That link is what i was looking for. I want to try putting hyperlites in place of whats there as I like the auto flashing, a 5 sec blink, they have. I will open up the coocase and see if there is room for them. If not then that link is the way to go, no blinking but much cheaper.  Thanks for the help.    Wayne

Give Twisted Throttle a call on your lights. I had problems with my lock and they bent over to help me, I am pleased with them.

The guys were good guys, but I was not impressed with the work.  Just little things, like the wires were all in there loose, and I had to suggest we cable tie them, etc.  Small s***.  I can fix it easy, just literally have not cared enough to dig into the project.

I found a company,Brake Flasher, which has a flasher that is programable , makes the brake light flash several times then go steady on.  With this and the Mods on this post I'll have what I want. the flasher is 19.95  I think it will work on the regular brake light to as its rated for 4 amps. might try to hook it up that way.

The maln brake light on the bike is LED also, so it should not draw much at all.  You should be fine.

Where did you find the programmable flasher?

the one I  liked was at www.3rdbrakeflasher for 19.95 and they pay shipping. I ordered on Friday so have not got my hands on one yet. I got nailed at a stop light 1957 in Miami that did the job on a 500cc AJS  single, for some reason she did not see me. To this day I can hear  the tires screaming on that 57Plymouth.I would rather that did not happen again.

got the brake flasher today and it was defective! I guess we will find out how good this vendor is now. The LEDs are not due until Sat. so the Coocase is still wimpy
