I've seen lots of different LED flasher relays out there for sale, anyone know if there is much difference in them? I haven't seen the Grote one locally, and online it's $20, I've seen plenty of others for less than $10 locally, just don't want to fry anything !

I am installing led arrows on my fairing but keeping the rear stock turn signals so I have the same question. Will my stockers still flas at the same rate? I plan on installing driving lamps in the original front singal location.

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.

Indeed, putting the extra resistor undoes the advantage of low power draw of an LED. The extra heat generated by the resistor, if not dissipated, may be hazardous too.

Why do LED turn signals flash at a higher speed? When both the bulbs are working, they draw a certain amount of current. If one of the bulbs fails, that bulb draws no current. Flasher is designed to sense lower current draw and flash at a faster speed. The purpose is to tell the driver that one of the bulbs has failed. In older cars, when your turn signal bulb failed, there was no way for you to know without actually looking.

Since LED bulbs draw much less current than tthe conventional incandescent bulbs, your flasher thinks tha one of the bulbs is out, triggering a faster rate of flash.
If you can disble the current sensing part of the flasher circuit, your LED bulbs should work fine with the stock flasher. The key is whether you can take thew flasher out and open it without damaging. That done, the other challenge is to find out the part of the circuit that senses current draw.

Also flashers work with a certain minimum current draw. If you replace all for turn signal bulbs, the total current draw might be less than the minimum required to make the flasher happy. In that case, even disabling or bypassing the current draw sensing circuit won't help. The only option is to replace the OEM flasher with an LED flasher.

To answer the question raised by Ogre67, the new flasher will work fine with any mix of LED and conventional bulbs as the minimum current required for the LED flasher is much lower. If you have one or more conventional bulbs, the minimum current requirement is sure to be met.

What are those blue floodlights on the front? They start out blue and look like they were adjusted to be brighter.

Ok, so I had installed rear LED turn signals, and nothing up front, and I did get rapid flashing in the rear, which I was ok with.

Now, I have decided to add the LED turn signals to the front. When I connected them to test if they work, this is what they did:

When bike was turned on, the front LED turn signals were on a constant ON, VERY bright. I want to set it up that they are NOT constantly on, but only come on when I use my turn signals.

2nd issue, when I actually use my turn signal, it goes from the VERY BRIGHT CONSTANT ON, to a barely visible flash. When I turn off my signals, it goes back to the VERY BRIGHT CONSTANT ON.

I do have a LED flasher relay that I bought with the LED's, just never got around to installing it.

Would installing it fix my issue? How do I go about changing the CONSTANT ON to OFF?
