Your factory tail/brake light bulb is crap! It's simply too wimpy to attract immediate attention. This is especially true during daytime (pic above right) when the bright sunlight can wash out the red brake light. TailBlazer from Kisan overcomes this by not only being about 30-40% brighter than stock, but it starts rapidly flashing the taillight the instant you apply the brakes. The flash rate then slows down to a steady ON - this cycle lasts about 4 seconds.

The plug-n-play Tailblazer is a 20W halogen bulb which puts out a more intense bright light than your cheesy factory bulb. The TailBlazer has a microchip embedded in the base which controls the flash modulation. 100% compatible with the CanBus and/or ABS systems on the new BMW.'s The Kisan bulb should *only be used with the factory taillight housing. In other words, it really gets the attention of that cell phone wielding soccer mom behind you.

Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) suggests that you pump your brakes at each stop. TailBlazer does it automatically, and by flashing the bulb filament at maximum brightness.

* 20W-DZ is improved with larger reflector base for easier installation.
* Circuit with "pulse-blanking" accommodates CanBus systems of new BMW's.
* Wider dispersion of light for broad, uniform spectrum.
* Standard 20W-DZ kit fits the 2002-04 BMW K1200RS, 2002-2004 K1200GT, 2005 & up BMW
K1200S / K1200R / K1200R Sport
* The K1300GT / 2006+ K1200GT 20W-s 2Pak Kit has two bulbs which are synchronized.
* Each kit comes with a spare extra bulb!! The GT kit comes with 2 spares!

* The TailBlazer burns white so obviously it can NOT be used with aftermarket clear taillights.



What Do They See?
As soon as you tap your brakes, that texting teen behind you will see a rapid flash of the brake lights. This sudden flashing invokes immediate attention. .

What Will They Think?
TailBlazer uses a flash pattern, which decays exponentially - a well-recognized deceleration warning. The attention to the initial flashing now changes to a clear recognition that you're beginning to slow down! Simply flashing brake lights or flashing them on & off will get the attention of drivers behind you, but it doesn't invoke anything else. Every split second of delay in their reaction time reduces your safety margin.

TailBlazer self modulating halogen bulbs have a dual contact base. The Modulator is built directly into the base while the element is replaceable.

Clear Taillight Housings: The TailBlazer bulb is white and meant to go behind Red plastic. We have had customers buy a red boot to put over the bulb to make it red for clear housing usage. That can be purchased at any automotive parts store.

CanBus Compatibility: I know what you are wondering. Are these problem free with the foofoo complicated CanBus systems the Germans stuck us with? Well for the most part..Yes. The Only thing that COULD happen (or so Kisan tells us) is that on a very small percentage of bikes.. perhaps 2%...the bulb out lamp MAY pulse with the stop mode. Once it has stopped pulsing, the warning stops or the TRIANGLE warning light may flash until brakes are released. Is there any way to tell which bikes will have the flashing issues? No.. Does Kisan have any idea why only a few bikes have the problem?.. No.. Will Pirates Lair refund your $$ if you are one of the lucky few to see the issue? Yes. Just call us for an RA# and we'll provide instructions.

LED Taillights: We also have TailBlazers for BMW's with LED Taillights. BMW K1300S, K1300R, F650GS, 2008-2010 F800GS, 2006-2010 F800S , 2009-2010 F800ST, 2009-2010 R1200GS Adventure, 2009-2010 R1200GS , 2013-2014 R1200GSW, 2008-2010 R1200S.. For these bikes.. Click Here
