  • This motorcycle uses an integrated lights. (Brake lights and turn signals). In other motorcycles, only the turn signals will flash.

  • In Full Installation, VoloMOD includes a feature that flashes the brake output once a second while any brake is applied. Test this feature by applying brakes and confirm the output flashes once a second.
