So, while on a holiday to Cornwall I was following a group of adventure bikes through the twisty turny coastal roads (jealous of the fact that they were riding bikes and I was driving my car 😔) and one of the bikes had a small light below the number plate that flashed 3/4 times when the brakes were pressed. What a brilliant idea! The normal tail light stayed on while the mini light just flashed when braking to grab your attention.

After some research, I bought a small this flasher module (motorbike version) that connects to an existing light and flashes 6 times then turns solid.
ideally I’d like to buy this Denali B6 and wire the module to it.

The issue I can see from a few YouTube videos is that;
1: they us a canbus module (mostly bmw) and I’m not sure xsr700’S will take a canbus module
2: the Denali B6 light is constantly on same as a tail light, and Both tail and number plate light get brighter when braking.
I would like the B6 to be off during normal riding, And only when braking the module flashes the B6 light.

Im struggling to get my head around the wiring. do I need to pull a switched live from the tail light, run into the flasher module and then use it to power the B6? Does that make sense? So the B6 is only on/flashing when braking. When I come off the brakes, the B6 turns off and the tail light resumes normal operation until I brake again?o_O

Here’s the wiring diagram from the flasher unit I bought.

Any help on the matter would be greatly received 🤙🏼

Cheers

Why it has to be wired this way is a mystery to me but it looks pretty easy, black to ground and one side of the light, the two other wires on the hot side of the light and connected to the hot side of the regular brake light. Why two wires need to be there, who knows. I guess I'd probably call the company with any questions.
