It installs easily. We use new, posi-tap connectors that can tap wires in a way that total wire integrity is maintained. The transmitter connects to power, ground, brake and left and right directional. The transmitter itself is sealed and can be located almost anywhere - under the seat, behind the seat, etc. - wherever wires are easy to get to. It draws almost no power and works on all motorcycles, including those with CAN Bus electrical systems. Once installed, it requires no maintenance or user intervention. It syncs automatically with your motorcycle and sends brake and turn signals to your helmet receiver. The helmet receiver attaches easily with special 3M tape, and 2 mounts are included so it can be switched quickly between helmets. Batteries are installed by removing 2 screws.
