Pros: NONE
Cons: EVERYTHING
" BOUGHT 2 OF THESE TO ADD AS ADDITIONAL BRAKE LIGHTS ON MTC. HOOKED THEM UP TO THE BRAKE WIRES, AND SPENT ABOUT 45 MINS. TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY NEITHER ONE WOULD WORK, AND WHAT I HAD DONE WRONG! FINALLY WIRED THEM STRAIGHT TO BATTERY ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT NEITHER ONE WOULD WORK AT ALL. "

Pros: Fairly straightforward hook-up, nice and bright!
Cons: Red lens falls off too easy; LED's wired in series?
" I bought the LED brake light as a supplemental brake light for my 1979 Honda CB750K. I wired it in parallel with the standard, dual, #1157 Bulbs in the tailight, and I mounted it on the top of my trunk. I also have the Amperite, "Stop-Alert Brake Light Pulsator" (P/N: ZX265361). My intention was for the LED brake light to flash with the #1157 bulbs. However, the LED brake light barely lit up, while the #1157 bulbs were flashing normally. When I hooked up the LED light alone, it flashed brightly, as you would expect. After a lot of messing around to figure it out, I finally opted to just hook the LED light to the brake light supply, such that the LED light would not flash, but stay on, as long as the brake was applied, as a normal brake light. To my surprise, it flashed opposite the #1157 bulbs! Now I have the LED's flashing opposite the incandescent brake lights (dual #1157 bulbs in the tail light assembly), for a strobe-like, light organ, effect. It wasn't what I had planned, but it works quite well, increasing the attention-grabbing quality of my brake light set-up. In other words, when the LED's are on, the incandescent bulbs are off; when the incandescent bulbs are on, the LED's are off (once the incandescent bulbs go on steady, the LED's are off). This gives an up-down strobe effect, as the LED's are mounted on my trunk, above the tail lights, at a car driver's eye level, behind me. I did, however, have to epoxy the red lens on, as it was too loose, as commented on by a previous reviewer. The double-sided tape seems to be holding, but I recommend you apply it, and leave the bike in your garage, for 24-hours afterward, to allow the tape to fully set. With a 12V battery connected, the LED's draw a maximum of 8.7 mA of current, for those interested in the details. See the video to appreciate the Light Organ effect. Cheers! "

Pros: looks great. as a brake light w/ flasher, I feel alot safer on the road.
Cons: not built to last. My bike vibrates the lens off; and the wires break loose.
" Love the way it looks as an extra brake light on the back of my 1996 Honda Shadow 1100 ACE. I feel a lot safer on the road with it. I added an electronic flasher to attract more attention when I apply my brakes. I used a " HOT MELT GLUE GUN " to glue the lens on better; and to hold the wire more stationary where it enters the housing.The last one I ordered did not work when I received it, and I had to return it for replacement. Am waiting to get the new one now. Hope it works ! I would recommend it to any biker, with the above mentioned modifications. "

" Ok, everybody knows that the double stick tape does not work or will fail. I drilled two small holes on each end and mounted with two small bolts. They worked great and are very bright as my brake lights. The problem is the red lens cover has a small tab on each end that will not hold it on the light bar. I lost one so I glued the other one on. Now I am odering another light just to get the lens cover. Oh yeah, I mounted them on my saddle bags. They really light up the rear end of my 2005 Honda VTX1800N. "
