Just installed the Kisan Signal Minder SM-3, including the running light option and the brake delay option. It took me less than 20 minutes total and I am not the most gifted mechanic. If you don't add the running light and brake delay, it takes less than a minute. I also purchased a $2 can of Testors Candy Red Transparent paint and painted the inside of my stock yellow rear turn signals. I did not believe it, but they look like they are red. This really helps in many ways. 1) I do not forget to turn off those damn blinkers and get run into by someone expecting me to turn...Thanks Honda you cheapos! 2) Rear is lit up with Red running lights, which provide significant visibility. With this setup, the running lights continue to shine even if you forget to reset the turn button and the SM-3 turns them off.(I have heard people say that you still have to reset or your front running light turns off, not with this setup) 3 You get three settings for the time/number of blinks and if you also hook up the Brake delay, you can set it to the lowest setting, and when you apply the brake, the counting is suspended, thereby keeping blinkers on for a minimal time after turning. 4) You can turn these into hazard flashers, where all four lights flash or you can choose alternating flashing for parades. 5) The Signal Minder also acts as a load balancing equalizer if you change to LED's for your turn signals. Great product and great customer service. I talked to their customer service and Honda(at volume) could probably add less than $10 to their cost by using this flash module over the stock one. I know you have to cut costs where you can...but this is also a great safety addition. At about $80 it might be a bit pricey for the function, but the other day I had a car pull out in front of me. Thought for a moment that is was their fault, but then I noticed I had forgotten to turn off the blinkers. It only takes once!
