Its actually called InVIEW, NOT InWiew as they claim in the article.

This is the actual website above, $249 from everything I have read, the best, hassle free technology that will save your life & or, unnecessary physical pain.

As it is, I* already have the extra bright, turn signal & brakes integrated BlasterX Rear Brake Light with the Strobe Light. Super bright & customise.


And the Front Indicator Lights, both from CUSTOM LED - any year you have they make upgrades easy.


The stock rear light, fender & indicators front & back on the 2016 would look big on a 757.

*I believe Koggs has a favourite manufacturer also

Has anyone else tried this technology?

I looked at quite a few Helmet Brake Lights over the years but this company seems to be the only one who have worked out all the kinks.

It's wired directly into your CANBUS so its instantaneous.

There is also this version below which looks more modern but I don't know if the technology is error free there or if its available to buy now or its still available only on kickstarter?

I am wary of using this last unit as its not wired in to yout brake or indicator - it simply uses your movement in space, etc.

Stock front is less bright than small CUSTOMLED replacements.

I still have to pay the shop to remove the large brackets that held the front indicators

Integrated lights are forbidden in the netherlands. Resr and frinr blinkers need to be apart a certain distance. Legislation will be changed aswell to make all lighting not physically mounted to a vehical illegal. I just stick to my to strobe brake light. Dont want to attract attention to my bike and have law enforcement discover i decatted the exhaust and ride without my db-killers

I just ordered a 2 euro brakelight module fron china, which solders ibti you excisting brakelight wiring

Those look good Doc. Cleans it right up and looks tons better.

Oddly, I have always liked the stock turn signals because of their size and visibility. Smaller or integrated look so much better though. -which is why I caved and bought the integrated rear signal ! Like you said, super bright and attn getters for sure.

You should be able to remove those housings from the front with some basic tools, and time. I may keep my empty (rear) turn signal holes to use when I attach the tail bag and or side bags. Not sure yet.

I like that third trike, but the recliner wins. !

For me, living in LA, waiting at the red light for it to turn & all thr lunatics coming up behind me or anytime I brake, this seems a no brainer.

The only problem is the fact that drunk drivers when the are truly $#@ up are attracted to bright lights.

He didn't.

When you take off the huge indicator lights there is a mounting bracket on either side that is left.

If you enlarge this photo you can see the bracket.

Yeah, since they're moved to a new location, didn't he drill holes to mount the new ones?

still looks clean to me tho.

The Assistant didn't check the clearance when he drilled the holes - when I went to lock the steering that night you can see from the first photo that the stalks were bent.

I was pissed.

They then if you look at photo 2 & 3 had to remove the rubber spacer in order to have it fit - now it clears by a red ***** hair.

The blinkers are by Customled.com

Very bright.

Sure, it does look goodwhere they are positioned right now. Maybe there was a good reason for drilling holes, was just wondering. I mounted my aftermarket turnsignals on the orginal big holes.

Show us a photo - I just saw a bike for sale on Craigslist where they mounted directly onto the brackets

@TheDoctor This is how my turn signals are mounted. Using a kawasaki cover plate. On the backside a piece of sheet matel cut in shape and bolted. The original bracket is sandwiched between the sheetmetal and coverplate, so it keeps tight and locked in position
