Question headlight modulator/flashers

I am considering purchasing one of these from Kisan Tech. Seems like a simple plug-n-play fit at a competitive price. Does anyone have experience with these or any headlight flasher? Ever have any problems?

I sure notice others that have them. Seems like a great safety device with little downside.

I have one made by Kriss Industries of Tucson, AZ (now out of business). I bought one for another street bike but have not installed it yet. I think they are a must safety device, people notice you especially on sunny days.

I also use the modulator that alternates the rear turn signals when the brakes are applied. It also gets a lot of attention, and I like not worrying as much about being rear ended. There are some others out there that just flash the brake light or use LED's in a license plate frame (very bright).

follow-up

I ended up with a Kisan headlight modulator which works great. I worried about it being too annoying and sometimes miss the ability to use a non-flashing hi-beam, but I know what the fix is. Overall, it is nice. It does get noticed!

I also installed Hyperlite rear LED flashers that go on with brake light. Very nice. I had some I made, but could not get the intensity I needed, so gave up and bought the real ones.

While I was working on the electrical stuff, I wired up some grip heaters. Very, very nice.

All three items are worth the money.

What grip heaters do you have? Where'd you buy them? How much? Were they straightforward to install?
