What is the exact symptom you are having? i had an issue when i installed mine and i had their dynamic ringz up front but i still had my stock bulbs in the rear and when i tried to get the magic strobe to work
i kept getting faults and it would not work. I finally put their rear LED brake lights in and all was good.

I have a 15 with the Canbus and I didnt have to have anything flashed and mine work flawlessly.

I have the Dynamic Ringz, in the front and the LEDs and Plasma Rods in the back.

Everything plays nice with each other but IIRC I had to get the breakout thingamajigger due to the plasma rods.

If I get a chance I will grab my paperwork and look it over in a little while and see if anything jogs my memory.

I know you have to let the bike "learn" that the LEDs are there but thats a 30second thing that you can do without taking it to the dealer.


15 RGS Vivid Black. Lots of Black stuff cause we all know Black is the fastest color. Custom Dynamics turn signals and PlasmaRods.
A.C.E. powerflex headpipes, and a better than stock stereo.

Plugged in right? Not sure about having the system flashed. Plugged right in and no problems on my 15. Some settings are only going to work with led bulbs in the rear. I can't remember if there is a switch on the magic strobe for if you have a center tail light or not. Try flipping that.

I think you need a turn signal decoder...

On my magic strobe module there are 2 switches. One is to turn on the flashing for tri-bar and the other is for the tail lights. If these switches are not on nothing will flash. Second on my 14 and 16 there was nothing else needed for the install. Not sure why they would tell you you need a flash.
