Turn signal upgrade question

I'm looking to upgrade my turn signals to LED, and was told I could use a solid-state turn signal relay. My question is this: Is it feasible, and if so, what relay do I need? Now for the stupid question: Where is the relay located?

As long as you can plug or wire it in in place of the stock one I don't see a reason it wouldn't work.

Behind the rear chrome cover on the left side (shifter side) of the bike.

LED lights work with a plug and play unit. The lights tend to blink at double the speed as normal or faster. To get to a normal flashing speed, you can install a small electrical unit that will do the trick. I bought some of these for my c50 but decided the flash blinking didn't bother me too much. Then, I sold the bike before installing them.


Plan for tomorrow and live for today.

Thanks, I found a solid state 7 pin relay that will work on Amazon. For $15, it solves the hassle of wiring in a resistor pack.

Yep, it is a chance it will work and mabye not for long, different people get different results. I hope it works out well for you! May it work as long as you ride the bike.
