I'm thinking of getting one of these for my Vapor. I'm hoping it will help remind me when I leave a blinker on :thumbsup: and I also thought a neutral light would be nice because of the Rekluse.

Has anyone tried on of these? If so how does the mount work that comes with it?

I just bought the billet mount for my Vapor, then mounted a green 12 volt LED in it for a neutral indicator. Could do the same for the turn indicator too.
You have to wire all the lights to your bike anyways, so unless the mount with lights is reasonably priced, you could just do it yourself.

I made my own mount after a quick trip to home depot. I thought of doing something like what you mention because I would rather have LED but the billet mount cost more than the one with the lights. I’m just looking at the bracket and trying to figure out how it mounts. :thumbsup:

I ordered it from the TT store and it arrived Friday. Blinker hook up was a no brainer and I moved the baja designs high beam indicator from the headlamp into the unit as well.

I’m still a bit baffled on a neutral light. I found the sky blue wire sends a ground signal when in neutral but because the baja designs battery is isolated to running only the lighting it doesn’t work with the bikes ground. The frustrating part is the wiring diagram shows the 4 wires coming out of the N switch but only shows 1 after the connector. :thumbsup: I think I could get it to work with the bike running but it would be nice to have it work during the occasional flame out on a hill climb. Any ideas??
