Flashball - Rotating Beacon Light
After the Tsurikawa, the Flashball, also called "Patoraito" (パトライト), is without a doubt Bosozokus and Kyusha lovers' favorite accessory! The Flashball was originally designed as a warning light when you had your car stopped on the side of the road because of mechanical issues. Only the purple type was then allowed as the red color was associated to Police cars. Bosozokus put them on the side of their bikes or on top of car backboards and light it up at night. (^_^)v
Our original 12 Volt motorized rotating beacon light comes with a vehicle cigarette lighter adapter and a 2 meters cable. It uses a bright incandescent lamp with a polished rotating reflector.

How to install my tsurikawa?
The only tool you need is a Philips type screw driver.
Loosen the 2 screws and remove the back plate.
Open up the strap and slide it around the part you want to attach it.
Stick the strap back in its original position, press firmly the strap layers together to make sure the screws sticks out and have enough thread to be screwed into the back plate.
Position the back plate and screw the bolts straight into the back plate to avoid any damage to the thread. Please be very careful on this point!
Please tighten the bolts firmly, especially if the tsurikawa is dragged on the ground, as the shocks and vibrations can cause them to loosen.
If my tsurikawa drags on the ground, how long will it last?
The longevity of a tsurikawa dragged on the ground depends on a lot of different factors (average speed, ambient temperature, quality of road…). We ran some test and did over 10.000Km without any issue. Some customers dragged their tsurikawa for more than 50.000Kn! In most cases, the ring wears out slowly, but sometimes it can also break suddenly if it hits something sharp on the ground. Please remember that our tsurikawa are super strong but are not bulletproof.
