Place the CONTROL MODULE in a weather protected area (such as beneath the seat) and secure to prevent movement. Locate so that it does not interfere with other motorcycle components or wiring. NOTE: The CONTROL MODULE must be wired in line BEFORE any additional after market items such as taillight or brake light modulators. Installation On Helmet 1. HELMETS VARY. Before removing protective backing from the adhesive pads, test fit the MotoGlo on the back base of helmet to determine best position and fit. 2. Using isopropyl alcohol, clean the area of the helmet where the MotoGlo is to be applied. Allow the alcohol to dry. 3. Remove the protective backing from the center adhesive pad and carefully apply the MotoGlo to the helmet in the predetermined area identified in step 1, making sure it is centered from left to right. 4. Remove the protective backing from the LED extensions (one at a time) and carefully apply to the helmet. NOTES: • The adhesive is intended for a one time application. It is best to lightly position the MotoGlo insuring proper location, then apply firm pressure for several seconds to insure a good adhesive bond. • If the MotoGlo is to later be reused on a different helmet, carefully remove the MotoGlo without damaging the LED extensions or center module. • Clean the residual adhesive pads from the MotoGlo and replace with appropriate automotive molding adhesive pads or tape. 4 CHARGING / OPERATION Charging the MotoGlo Use the included USB cable to charge the MotoGlo. The center indicator light is RED while charging and will turn GREEN when the MotoGlo is fully charged. (A standard USB to mini USB cable can also be used.) MotoGlo Operation Pairing (only for initial operation) • Install the Control Module and fully charge the MotoGlo Helmet Safety Light. Refer to Power ON/OFF for additional information. NOTE: If the MotoGlo does not automatically pair with the control module after initial charge, or if pairing a second MotoGlo to the same control module, the following steps are to be used to manually pair the MotoGlo with the control module. 1. With the motorcycle ignition ON, insert the Pairing Key into the mini USB interface on the MotoGlo. (MotoGlo should be fully charged.) 2. The MotoGlo has been successfully paired with the Control Module and activated when the Indicator Light turns BLUE. 3. Remove the Pairing Key and the Indicator Light will turn RED. 4. Store the Pairing Key in a place of safe keeping. Power ON/OFF • The MotoGlo default is automatically in operational mode once properly paired with the control module. With the motorcycle ignition ON, the MotoGlo will power ON when it detects a slight movement of the helmet and will power OFF a few seconds after the motorcycle ignition is turned OFF. NOTES: 1. The MotoGlo may also be manually turned OFF in the event the rider does not want the MotoGlo to operate while the motorcycle is in use, as in situations with a passenger. With the motorcycle ignition ON, make sure the MotoGlo is within range of the control module and operating. Apply and hold the brake and then operate left-right-left turn signals within 3 seconds, and then release the brake. The MotoGlo should now turn OFF. 5 OPERATION OPERATION / SPECIFICATIONS 2. Once manually turned OFF, the same procedure must be used to power ON the MotoGlo. IMPORTANT: If 2 MotoGlo Helmet Lights have been paired to the control module, the procedures above will affect BOTH helmet lights if they are in range of the control module. If only one MotoGlo is to be manually turned OFF or ON, make sure the other MotoGlo is in “sleep” status or out of range (>100FT) of the control module. NOTE: The MotoGlo will go into “sleep” status when the ignition is turned OFF and the MotoGlo powers OFF a few seconds later. The MotoGlo will remain in “sleep” status until a slight movement is detected after the ignition is turned ON. Running Lights • The RED running lights remain ON in normal operating mode unless changed by the user. • The status of the running lights may be changed by operating the left-right-left turn signals within 3 seconds. Each completed left-right-left cycle of the turn signals will advance the running light condition to the next status. ON --> FLASHING --> OFF -->ON --> FLASHING --> OFF Turn Signals • The AMBER lights will flash either right or left when the appropriate turn signal is activated on the motorcycle. The running lights will go out while the turn signal is ON. • When the brake is applied while turning, the RED brake light will illuminate on the opposite side of the turn signal. Brake Light The BRAKE lights will illuminate when the brake is applied, and will be a brighter RED than the running light condition. Brake Running NOTES: • The center RED indicator light will remain illuminated regardless of operation, unless the MotoGlo has been turned OFF. • The center RED indicator light will flash when the battery needs to be recharged. When this occurs, the MotoGlo will no longer operate until the battery has been recharged.
