LED's flash at hyper speed with the stock flasher.
im well aware of what LEDs do to flasher circuits, just wanted to make sure thats what was going on.

I had LEDs on the busa, but never cared about the rate of flash, my buddy was a bit more anal about it so we just wired in resistors when we changed out his signals.

By putting in resistors in to the system will draw the same amount of power just insted of the light drawings more you are making the resistor to disipate it in heat. By changing the realy you run at less draw but the same flash rate.

It is not how FAST you get there its all about how you got there

good point, although he just wanted smaller signals, not less power draw

Having trouble figuring out which blue wire (there are 3 on my C50). Is it the one that is white and blue and heavier gauge than the others......about like the brown wire??

You need the blue wire that has a brownish band on it. you can also look at the bottem on the stock realy and you will need the wires that go in to pins F and G.

It is not how FAST you get there its all about how you got there

my brown and blue wires where on a 04 vl800. sorry. i was a bit confused to at first, because i had 2 or 3 blue wires, but when i looked at the wiring diagram, i noticed that they were marked differently and paired differently, and then made perfect sense. hopefully somebody else here can send you a pic of your wiring diagram.

I'm planing to up grade my rear turn signals to l.e.d's. With this mod will my front stock signals flash at the same rate?
