Headlight Modulator

I am looking at possibly adding this to the K1300gt as I noted some bikes with them on and they sure stood out. The site https://www.kisantech.com/view_produ...oduct=P115W-A6 asks if this bike is a Can-bus model ( this is my first BMW and I am not sure). Will this attachment affect warranty?

I'm not sure this would work at all, assuming the bike is a Xenon headlight bike. Unless it can act on the high beams, which I believe would be incandescent.
At any rate, yes it is a Can-Bus bike.
I would tend to think it wouldn't affect the warranty, but ask the dealer.

I would just get some lights mounted low on the forks and make the bike noticeable that way. Make the lighting a triangle and people see it.

Motolights make the bike extremely visible during the day...

True enough, until one or both bulbs burn out, which seems to happen a bit to often.

A better bet for visibility to other road users would be some of the newer LED lights. Noticeably cheaper, good visibility, and last much longer.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
