VoloMOD Early Indication Brake Lights

Step 1 Preparing for an install

Locate a switched 12VDC power source (on/off with ignition).

Identify your motorcycle's color code for power, ground, turn signals and brake signal wires.

Note: if you plan to install the output to an auxiliary light(s), disregard the turn signal wires mentioned above.

Select a clean surface on a motorcycle to install VoloMOD.

Step 2 Unboxing

All connectors for full installatios are included with VoloMOD

Step 3 Make the power connection

Connect VoloMOD black wire (#4) to the motorcycle's ground using the posi-tap connector.

Connect VoloMOD red wire (#5) to the motorcycle's switched 12V using the posi-tap connector.

Instructions on how to use posi-tap connectors can be found here.

Step 4 Check VoloMOD powers up

Once installed, switch the motorcycle to the ON position and check for the start up sequence shown in the video.

Step 5 Install the output wires to the turn signals

Make sure motorcycle is OFF.

The longer solid blue and brown wires from the VoloMOD are the output wires.

The shorter blue and brown wires with white strips from the VoloMOD are inputs to the VoloMOD.

Instructions on how to use Posi-lok connectors can be found here.

Identify the turn signals wires and cut them in two

Make connections as shown in the schematic.

Step 6 Checking the brake signal connection

Check the output connection by tilting VoloMOD slowly until the first trigger point is met; and then the second as shown in the video

Check both the LEDs on the VoloMOD and your brake lights

Step 7 Secure voloMOD

Remove velcro backing and place velcro on the surface

IMPORTANT! Ensure that the arrow is pointing towards the front of the motorcycle

Surface grade should be less than 45 degrees. Avoid "negative slope" i.e sloping back towards the motorcycle

Step 8 Change sensitivity or Mode (optional)

There are three sensitivity settings on the VoloMOD

This step is optional. To change the setting, click here.

The default setting, 1.5 m/s^2 or 3.35 mph/s and is recommended for most motorcycles.

The Touring settings, 1 m.s^2 or 2.24 mph/s and is recommended for larger motorcycles.

The Sports settings, 2 m/s^2 or 4.5 mph/s and is recommended for high compression sports motorcycles.

Step 9 Calibration

IMPORTANT: Calibration must be performed on a level surface with the motorcycle in an upright position.

With the power ON, introduce the magnet to VoloMOD. Note the flash sequence

Remove magnet at the first flash while keeping motorcycle upright and still for 5 seconds.

Note the flash sequence shown in the video.

Step 10 Tidy up and ride!

Remove exposed copper from unused wires and tape together securely.

We recommend riding with a friend to confirm VoloMOD is functioning and calibrated properly.
