    No idea what you mean with that. I asume something to get both lights work just like lots of people do with double lights side by side.
    If you want more light you better by some quality LED bulbs and adjust them properly.

    the module varies the intensity of of the low beam from 18% intensity to 100% intensity four times a second...visibility to on coming traffic is increased tremendously...you become very noticeable...and quite a bit safer...

    the one I have on my v-strom in made by Signal Dynamics in florida...but they do not have one for the vfr1200 yet...
    i assume there are no manufacturers in europe...

    cheers

    You mean modulator.

    The key to legality is checking with local and state/country laws. Strobes are usually illegal because they actually turn on and off quickly whereas modulators don't actually turn off, they only dim to give a pulsing effect. Even where legal, it is often illegal to use the modulator feature at night. It doesn't bother the rider as much as it really distracts drivers coming toward you.

    If one isn't available for the VFR it's just wiring, you should be able to adapt one to work. Signal dynamics make a universal adapter that should work ok although I haven't tried it. It is out of stock though (Revzilla).

    But i think the Canadians are just too friendly to kick you of your bike because you are annoying AF.
    Yes you get noticed but it's just like negative attention is also attention.
