Kury Plug & Play version, red bulbs, extra load equalizer. Love it on the bike. Literally 2 minute install. Looks great.

Re:Kuryakyn Run-Turn-Brake Controller? 6 Years ago  
I've been running the plug in version with a load equalizer and red bulbs for about two years now with no problems.

Personally I didn't care for the mutli-flashing brake configuration. When I hit the brakes and had a blinker on it was kind of hard to tell what the heck was going on.

Not knocking the product though. The set-up was easy to install and works great.

^^^ Might be a benefit of the one I have, as there is an actual box that is installed, and has everything built into that, load equalizers, etc. and when the blinker is on, the brake does not flash. Only when brake only.

After looking at several different manufactures, I like the one roadstar_rider has. Mainly because you keep the amber lights for turn signals but will still work as red brake and running lights. Their website doesn't say if it's plug and play or if you have to splice wires.
I am NOT gonna start splicing wires. No way no how. But that's just me.

I have the Kury R/T/B with back off module and Radiantz red LED arrays. It at least quadrupled the amount of light on the rear of the scoot, and the back off module really gets the drivers attention behind you. I noticed cagers staying further back at traffic light stops. Well worth the investment and about a 10 minute job light change and everything.

Yep. Piece of cake to install and configure.

I have the Kury R T B ...Big difference! Switched all the lights out to red on the back and I like it much better. I noticed one day,..(while following a Roadstar in my semi),.. that the tail light looked more pink than red..(04' and higher years).. and not very bright compared to vehicles around it. Thats why I put mine on, now when I look behind my bike at night..the whole road glows red.

The Kury R-T-B was a piece of cake to install. A load equalizer was included with the controller and was needed to get the turn signals to function correctly.

Since all of the lenses in the rear of the bike were clear colored, I wanted to replace the amber turn signal bulbs with red turn signal bulbs (Kuryakyn P/N 4620). These particular bulbs were on a significant back order so I ended up getting red turn signal bulbs (Kuryakyn P/N 4814) and filing off one of the pins. That did the trick and I am very pleased with how it turned out!!!

When I installed mine I use silvered bulbs that glow red. They worked fine but I didn't think that they were bright enough. I decided to switch to a red lens with a clear bulb. I went the cheep route, basic 1156 clear bulb with one pin filed off and I painted the inside of the clear lens with 3 coats of Tamiya clear red model paint. They look great. I swapped bikes with a buddy to see how they looked and was impressed at how well the worked even in daylight. Total cost maybe 4-5 dollars and I still have plenty of paint left.
