|Chuck Stafford||I know this is an old thread but after installing LEDs front and rear they work fine just as planned but my tank display turn signal lights are lit. They are dimly lit and brighter when flashing. Is this normal or did I miss a step? Or perhaps purchased a bad relay?|

This whole conversation has been "enlightening." Seriously, I have wanted to LED my rear on my 05 C50 since week 2. I just purchased some inexpensive but very good looking and smaller/closer fitting turnsignals.

I plan on matching the existing connectors - shouldn't be too difficult to find, thereby maintaining the OEM wiring connection, in case I want to replace with stock. This leaves me with two that I may gift away. Good Karma. Cheers, and thanks for this marvelous post.

Maybe concern is, how do I know they will fit my bike?

LED bulbs to be used as dual intensity bulbs (turn signal or stop light) function by alternately dimming some or all of the LEDs and allowing them to emit to full brightness. The difference between bright and dim in those type of bulbs is not very large.

If you are going to be adding accessories to your bike that are power hogs, such as heated clothing, you need to save power so that you don't over draw from your power generation system.

I am fully aware there are ways to modify flasher relay by replacing it with electronic one that will work with both LED and indescandent bulbs without cutting wires. Im very good in electronics or can find one online. If modding the flasher, what about bulb under speedo dial?? Curious
I would love to have RED Luxeon LEDs for brakelight, its blinding bright!! Attention getter from rear chuckling...

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?
