Description
 
For controlling strobe mode and programming features on Blaster-X Tail Light

The Blaster-X Control Switch is an optional accessory for all Blaster-X Tail Lights. This switch will allow you to conveniently control the strobe mode operation of the tail light (intense strobe cycle, like hazards on steroids), and to program advanced features of the tail light. General Blaster-X Tail Light Programming instructions are available below. Check the instructions for your specific Blaster-X tail light for exact features.

This switch is not necessary for standard integrated tail light operation.

Each Blaster-X Control Switch comes with a 24" long gray wire to connect to the tail light gray wire (control/program wire), and a 16" long black wire with ring connector for ground connection at battery or anywhere on frame.

  • Works with all Blaster-X Tail Lights to control strobe mode and programming features.
  • NEW! Features an on-off-momentary operation for easy programming and strobe-mode use.
  • Comes with 24" long 22AWG gray wire soldered to switch.
  • Comes with 16" long 22AWG black wire with ring terminal for ground connection.
  • Sold as each.




Installation Instruction:


YOUR TAIL LIGHT IS EQUIPPED WITH A UNIQUE INTERFACE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO CUSTOMIZE CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE TAIL
LIGHT. THIS INTERFACE IS ACCESSED AND CONTROLLED VERY SIMPLY THROUGH THE GRAY STROBE MODE CONTROL WIRE.
(NOTE: ONLY TAIL LIGHTS WITH “_PI1” IN THE PART NUMBER HAVE THIS FEATURE.)
YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE STROBE MODE CONTROL WIRE CONNECTED TO GROUND (-) THROUGH A TOGGLE SWITCH FOR EASY
PROGRAMMING, AND THE TAIL LIGHT WILL HAVE TO BE PROPERLY INSTALLED AND FUNCTIONING ON THE MOTORCYCLE.
FOR SIMPLICITY, THE GRAY WIRE WILL BE CALLED THE “CONTROL
WIRE” AND IT WILL BE ASSUMED THAT YOU HAVE THE CONTROL
WIRE CONNECTED TO A TOGGLE SWITCH WITH AN “ON” (GROUNDED) AND
“OFF” (UNGROUNDED) POSITION. THIS WILL BE CALLED THE CONTROL SWITCH FROM NOW ON.

ACCESSING THE PROGRAMMING INTERFACE
A) WITH THE CONTROL SWITCH ON, TURN ON THE MOTORCYCLES IGNITION, THEN TURN OFF THE CONTROL SWITCH
(YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY ENTERED PROGRAM MODE IF THE TAIL LIGHT REMAINS LIT DIMLY YELLOW)
NOTE: ANY INPUTS TO THE TAIL LIGHT (BRAKE OR TURN) WILL PULL THE TAIL LIGHT OUT OF PROGRAM MODE FOR SAFETY REASONS.

CUSTOMIZING FEATURES
ONCE YOU HAVE ACCESSED THE PROGRAMMING INTERFACE, YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THE FOLLOWING MENUS.
1) TURN THE STARTUP SEQUENCE ON/OFF.
2) SET THE NUMBER OF BRAKE ALERT PULSES FROM 0 TO 19, OR CONSTANT WHILE BRAKES APPLIED.
3) SET THE RUNNING LIGHT BRIGHT NESS WITHIN A PRESET RANGE.
4) SET THE BRAKE LIGHT BRIGHTNESS WITHIN A PRESET RANGE.
5) ENTER DEMO MODE. (USEFUL FOR BIKE SHOWS AND DISPLAYS)
6) RESET FACTORY DEFAULTS (SAME AS WHEN THE TAIL LIGHT WAS MANUFACTURED).

SELECT THE MENU ITEM YOU WISH TO ACCESS AND MODIFY. ENTER THE MENU BY DOING THE FOLLOWING:

B) TURN THE CONTROL SWITCH ON AND OFF THE NUMBER OF TIMES CORRESPONDING TO THE MENU NUMBER YOU WISH TO
ENTER.

FOR INSTANCE, TO SET THE NUMBER OF BRAKE ALERT PULSES YOU WOULD TURN THE CONTROL SWITCH ON AND OFF
TWICE. FOR EXAMPLE: ON, OFF, ON, OFF. (NOTE: YOU MUST COMPLETE THE ON-OFF SEQUENCE WITHIN 10 SECONDS.)

AFTER APPROXIMATELY 5 SECONDS, THE TAIL LIGHT WILL “READ BACK” THE MENU NUMBER BY BLINKING ON AND OFF THE CORRESPONDING NUMBER OF TIMES YOU HAVE SELECTED. THE TAIL LIGHT WILL THEN ENTER THE CUSTOMIZATION MODE FOR THAT MENU ITEM.

FOR THE BRAKE ALERT EXAMPLE ABOVE, THE TAIL LIGHT WILL NOW DISPLAY HOW MANY BRAKE ALERT PULSES ARE CURRENTLY SET (THIS WILL HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE READ-BACK).

C) TO CUSTOMIZE THE MENU ITEM YOU HAVE ACCESSED, SIMPLY
USE THE CONTROL SWITCH TO ADVANCE THE FEATURE TO THE
NEXT VALUE.

EACH TIME THE CONTROL SWITCH IS TURNED ON AND OFF, THE ITEM WILL ADVANCE TO THE NEXT VALUE AND EVENTUALLY CYCLE BACK AROUND TO THE FIRST SETTING.

D) WHEN YOU HAVE SELECTED THE VALUE YOU WANT, SIMPLY TURN OFF THE TAIL LIGHT.

THE SETTING YOU CHOSE WILL BE STORED
INTO THE NON-VOLATILE MEMORY WH ICH MEANS IT SHOULD STAY THE SAME UNTIL THE NEXT TIME YOU CHANGE IT!

ONLY ONE MENU ITEM CAN BE ACCESSED AT A TIME. TO CHANGE ANOTHER MENU ITEM, REPEAT THIS PROGRAMMING PROCEDURE FROM THE BEGINNING.
