Having read all the comments in this topic I decided to fit a brakelight on my ariel G special .I fitted a led bulb Light/brakelight and made the m110 compatible. After fitting a retro brakelight switch it works. Let us hope that all these half-sleeping mobile apping idiots see me slowing down .

when the time comes, i shall buy on, bodge it into a more in -keeping light fitting and try it



I have bought two (different ones) and they both work the same way.
The light is turned ON before it can be turned into brake mode.
By turned ON, it means that it must functioning as a rear light and that means four modes of annoying red flashing which is not practical on a motorcycle as you need it to go from OFF to braked ON.

I have asked a few other sellers about theirs, and get mostly met with a "don't know" .
I'll post back if I find one that does what I need it to.

Is it possible to remove or bypass the circuit in the light that does the unnecessary flashing?
