I will probably wire my lights to work that when I hit the 20°/30°angle all 3 lights on one side will turn on instead of just the second or the third
That may be harder than it sounds because all the lighting is controlled by the IMU sensor. I'm just going to leave mine alone. :lol:

Indeed. As long as icu gives at least power on one of the three lights cables you can trigger all 3 by relay. Wiring might be tough. Depends what plugs they use. Must be waterproof as well and you can bet there isn’t much space in the fairing

Speaking of the turning lights, I had a thought today that might be a remote safety issue. The way people drive cars these days, I'm wondering if some bonehead in a car might mistake them for turning signals at the wrong time and pull out in front of the bike as a results.

I mean, if you were going around a slight right hand corner and the top turning light was blinking on/off some (as seen in many videos posted), some idiot in a car sitting at a stop sign on the right side of the curve might think the bike is going to turn right on the road the car is on, and then the idiot in the car pulls out thinking it's a turn signal. Just a thought ... I'm always thinking safety when riding.

I've heard that the corner lights on the multistrada cause people think your flashing your bright lights at them when changing lanes if you do it too fast.

I think the way they flicker will look more like a head light flash then a turn signal. Hopefully it just makes them pay more attention to you.

The cornering lights are great. I can actually see the corner ahead of time unlike the damn light that was on my Ninja 1000 which was pretty much useless at night time.
There is a option to turn off this system, but I didn't see an option to keep them on the whole time.
Don't worry, the LED headlight by itself is bright enough. It's the extra angle you get when you lean the bike.

I would turn them off during the daytime so idiots in cars don't mistaken them for turn signals and pull out in front of the bike.

Yeah, I would probably have them turned off at all times unless I'm riding at night. They really serve no purpose during the day. Hopefully the system retains the setting so you don't have to do it every time you get on it.
