Additional Instructions for Controllers with the Decelerometer
For proper functioning of the decelerometer capabilities it is critical to install and secure the controller in the proper physical orientation.
The arrow on the controller label should point to the front of your bike
The controller should be placed horizontally, parallel to the ground
To minimize conducting engine vibration directly to the controller, the controller should NOT be secured directly to the chassis or frame
Bend the wires and secure the wire bundle to the bike
First, identify a flat, level location to position the controller as described above.
Second, identify the correct wires to tap for your bike and confirm that the controller wires will reach from the mounting location that you have chosen.
Next bend a curve in the wires near the controller and secure the wires to the bike, 3”-5” from the controller, using the provided zip tie. In order to isolate the controller from the bike’s vibration, it is insulated in neoprene.
Wiring of the controller with the decelerometer feature is the same as for the standard IQ-260. Please click here or refer to the main installation manual for wiring instructions.
Orienting and Securing the Controller
The controller will automatically turn on the connected lights in an emergency flashing pattern in the event that the bike tips over beyond a 65 degree angle from vertical. The flash pattern will be 3 flashes, pause, repeat. If you have the turn signal version of the controller, the 3 repeating flashes will alternate left then right. They will remain on as flashers for 15 seconds after the bike has been uprighted. The lights will no longer flash if the ignition is off, but will come back on again in Tip Over mode when the ignition is turned on unless the bike is upright.
Tip Over Flasher
There are 5 sensitivity settings for the decelerometer plus the option to turn it off. Sensitivity is adjusted with standard programming method described below. If the brake lights flash even with minor deceleration, decrease the sensitivity. If they fail to flash with significant deceleration, increase the sensitivity. The default setting is medium.
Modes are changed using the brake lever with the ignition on.
To enter programming mode:
Tap and release the brake 4 times
Wait 5-6 seconds for the lights to flash 4 times, indicating that you are in programming mode
Now tap and release the brake the number of times listed next to your desired mode from the list below
Wait 5-6 seconds without any brake activity. The lights will flash back to confirm that they have received your programming input.
The number of flashes will correspond to the ones digit of the sensitivity mode that has been entered. (e.g. 4 flashes would indicate that the sensitivity has now been set to “high”, programming mode 14)
After the lights flash, your entry has been saved and you are out of programming mode.
