What\'s that blink?!?

Sometimes when I ride my 1K I notice a blue blinking in my mirrors, usually accompanied by a howling, siren-like sound. It dissapears when I accelerate. I guess it must be some sort of strobe/sound system. Is that stock or do I have a limited edition bike? And where do I change the CD, the siren sound gets old.

Re: What\'s that blink?!?

Normally on strobed bikes the rider misses out on seeing the action cause they had it installed in the bottom of the fairing. In your case you get to see em, bonus I reckon, as for the howling, it probably just a cat you have run over, no need to worry.. but the RSPCA might be onto you so yes its better to throttle away from the scene.

that's an option suzuki put on some bikes to help the rider acelerate quick.
it's just a factory power adder no big deal

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Ok, firstly you are in Europe and they don't like bike mods, so you will have to do it discreetly. Second this little puppy is worth a good 12-18 hp at the spark plugs (SAE weighted not the other type of measurement). Be careful you don't get nabbed other wise they istall a resrictor in you spark plug leads that cut hp by 50% or so, damn fun police.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">The green one. Higher temperature co-efficient at all rpms.
