I am going to start out by saying that I am not a mechanic and am definitely a Nube when it comes to motorcycles.

OK...I have installed the headlight modulator, but am freaking out about the sensor. Don't know where to put it. Any suggestions?

Also, do the lights flash at the same time or are they supposed to alternate? Just want to make sure that I have this installed right before I button it back up.

I snaked mine up the handlebar cover and cable tied it to the handle bar so that it is exposed just above the top edge of the cover. Works great!

The top of the dashboard near where it meets the windshield is fine.
It isn't in direct sunlight, but that's okay.
The sensor is there to determine daytime from night time, and where you locate it will only make a difference going under bridges.
Not really a big deal. Don't sweat it.

As far as whether they flash together or separate, most people only hook up one or the other, not both. I suggest you do the same.

What make and model # of modulator?
You may have a dual bulb modulator which is designed to cycle both lamps together whenever the high beam is selected during daytime use. If you use that type to modulate only one headlamp, then you have wasted your money and I'll buy it from you.

About headlight modulators: They are designed to be used primarily on the High beam only; used judiciously in situations where you suddenly wished to be noticed more. Blind curves, intersections, passing and changing lanes, for example. If you indiscriminately leave it on while it is shining in the mirror of the vehicle ahead of you, all he has to to to get you to desist is move that little lever into the "R" position (revenge) Therefore, it behooves us to operate our appurtenances with discretion. IOW, do not hook up both bulbs to the modulator. (In my oh, so humble opinion)

It's a 115-DHL? (Kissen) I plugged both in just like the instructions and they blink simultaneously. Did I do this right?

Also, I located the sensor on the dash just behind the windshield.

The Kisan you installed is functioning perfectly if both high and low beam modulate together when your handlebar light switch is set to HIGH beam. When you set the handlebar light switch to LOW beam, modulation should stop.

You "done good".
Congrats. Feels good, doesn't it?
