The Blaster-X Control Switch is an optional accessory for all Blaster-X Tail Lights. This switch will allow you to conveniently control the strobe mode operation of the tail light (intense strobe cycle, like hazards on steroids), and to program advanced features of the tail light. General Blaster-X Tail Light Programming instructions are available here. Check the instructions for your specific Blaster-X tail light for exact features.
The Custom LED Blaster-X 2nd Generation Programming Interface allows users to easily customize features of the tail light! The customizable features menu allows users to:
- Enable or Disable the Startup Sequence.
- Choose from 11 different Brake Alert patterns (can also disable Brake Alert).
- Adjust the running light brightness within a preset range.
- Adjust the brake light brightness within a preset range.
- Engage Demo Mode, where the tail light cycles through all functions automatically and repeatedly!
- Reset factory defaults.
This switch is not necessary for standard integrated tail light operation.
Each Blaster-X Control Switch comes with a 24" long gray wire to connect to the tail light gray wire (control/program wire), and a 16" long black wire with ring connector for ground connection at battery or anywhere on frame.
- The OFF position on the switch is for normal tail light operation.
- The MOMENTARY position on the switch is very useful for a momentary strobe-mode burst, or for programming the tail light.
- The ON position on the switch is intended for extended strobe-mode use.
The installation of the Blaster-X Control Switch is detailed in the downloadable file below.

2017 KTM SDR Tail Light
Haven't installed product as of yet. Product did come very quickly, nicely packaged and sees of high quality. Customer support is excellent, I called asking if I needed a differently relay for my application, they stated no, if they wanted they could have sold me something I didn't needed and I would have been none the wiser.
Control Switch, Blaster-X
It seams like the new version is a little more sturdy then the one I replaced. The housing is slightly bigger and the switch is 3-way with a steady on left and flash on right, which made it easier to access the menus. I would recommend larger washers for mounting as the stem is still very small so you are likely to break the housing if you rely on it as a brace.
Hello Roody, thank you for choosing Custom LED, and thank you for your review! You are correct, our new version of the Blaster-X Control Switch does feature a Momentary position, and Off position and an On position. This is useful for both programming and for strobe-mode. Regarding the rigidity of the unit. We purposefully chose a micro-mini toggle switch for this application to make it easy to mount, and easy to hide on the motorcycle. It would be an eyesore to have a large toggle protruding from these beautifully sculpted motorcycles. It is very important to follow the installation instructions and diagram which shows a nut on both the rear side, and front side of the mounting surface. This prevents tension on the mounting shaft which can certainly lead to a failure of the switch. If you misplaced the installation diagrams that came with the switch, they can be downloaded from the product page in the ""Installation"" tab.
Yamaha FZ-10 Blaster-X
The product is everything that it's billed to be. Bright, OEM quality lens and housing, OEM connector for plug and play operation. Easy to install too. The ground-wire programming technique works, but adds a step that could be avoided with magnetic sensor or switch-sequence programming. I did send a technical inquiry that went unanswered. I wanted to tie in my stock turn signals AND use the built in signals. I just took a shot, made a Y-Harness with OEM connectors (Sumitomo TS025), and it works great.
Shopping was fast, got here as expected. All went well
Wire too short, a bit cheap... but works.
I bought this switch because the other reviewers seem to suggest it helps with programing and also adds a cool hazard mode. I agree, it does, HOWEVER, the grey wire leading to tail-light is too short. I was forced to mount the switch in a less desired place. Had I know, I would have soldered a longer wire to it but I already ran it through very tight and narrow channels. I also feel that the base of the switch should be enclosed or coated for weather conditions and add better quality to it. Also the switch positions were not described in the directions and I had to contact customer service for advice. This is important since one side bounces back and it gets confusing while programming other modes.
Hello Anthony, thank you for your review. I do now see how the switch functions can be confusing without prior knowledge or experience with toggle switches. The product page does mention that the Blaster-X Control Switch now "features an On-Off-Momentary operation for easy programming and strobe-mode use" but it does not specifically explain how to use these different functions in the instructions. I will be updating the instructions to reflect how the different switch positions are intended to be used. As for the wire length, the 24" long gray wire from the switch is typically long enough to reach the tail light when the switch is mounted in the intended position - which is under the riders seat. If your goal was to mount the switch further up towards the front of the motorcycle, then the wire would need to be extended to suit your custom application. Again, thank you so much for your review. Customer reviews allow us to improve our products for all. And thank you for choosing Custom LED!
