Kisan TailBlazer thread *here*
I've been posting this info in two seperate threads so I just thought I'd start a new thread with the latest info.
recap - Installed, worked okay. Rode all day (300 miles). Don't work okay.
After the install they were flawless. After a couple hours I noticed I only got the flashy triangle thingy intermittently. At one stop light I applied the brakes and didn't see the yellow triangle warning. At the light I turned around and looked at the lens - no flash. The tail light was fine, brake light came on solid. Weird.
Also, after one fuel stop I got the lamp warning on the tail light. No lights, no brake lights. Key off, then back on fixed the problem.
It appears the Tail Blazers work fine at startup, then during the ride stop flashing, or only flash a couple times, then come on solid. I have no earthly idea what the don't work all the time, or not work all the time.
Intermittent problems are the worst.

Same issue for me, but I noticed the taillight assembly was wobbly before I removed it to install the Kisan. I'm thinking it's TADT (they all do that), because I remember reading similar posts on this site or others.
I'm getting the flashing yellow lamp warning when I apply the brakes right after startup, but it goes away after a few seconds. Andy at Kisan explained it as resulting from diminshed battery voltage after cranking , but said it is of no concern.
I'm going in for the 12k service on Monday, so I'll ask the tech about both issues and report back if I hear anything different.
Here's the latest
I emailed Kisan, this is what they said -
The ZFE monitoring software also changes the duty cycle of the brake output if the brakes have been applied successively too many times, as by pumping the brakes. That's probably why the tailBlazer did not flash when you looked at it after riding a while. If you keep applying brakes the duty cycle will keep on getting longer and tailBlazer flash cycle will also get shorter and shorter. The reset time for the full flash cycle is about 2.5 seconds.
I asked them if they knew why my system is not resetting, waiting to hear back from them. I'll post it here. At least we know why they stop flashing, now I wonder if there is a fix other than key off/on
