Hey, I am trying to wire up some turn signals on my ‘07 c50t. I had all the wires connected but The new signals are not working. The new signals are 2 wire (red and black) is there something Im missing?

Almost any turn signal will work. On the front they are 3 wire signals (ground, running, turn) on the back they are 2 wire (turn and ground). They use different bulbs (1157 front, 1156 rear)
Here is some other helpful info
Some are small and likely not DOT approved so if your state has "tight" inspections they may not pass.
There are multiple types of turn signals/running lights some can only be used for one function (turn OR running) others can be used for both functions.
1 wire - one function only - running light OR turn signal
Connections:
  • Connect the one wire to the brown wire on the bike for running light, the light green for Right turn, Black for left turn
    The negative (ground) is made through the mounting bolt, these lights won't work until you connect the bolt to a metal part on the bike.
2 wire - one function only - running light OR turn signal
Connections:
  • Connect the positive wire on the signal to the brown wire on the bike for running light, the light green for right turn, black for left turn.
    Connect the negative wire on the signal to the black wire with white stripe
2 wire - two function - running light AND turn signal
Connections:
  • Connect one of the positive wires on the signal to the brown wire on the bike for running light
    Connect the other positive wire on the signal to the light green on the bike for right turn, black for left turn.
    The negative (ground) is made through the mounting bolt, these lights won't work until you connect the bolt a metal part on the bike.
    If when you test the running light is brighter than the turn signal swap the two positive wires
3 wire - two function - running light AND turn signal
Connections:
  • Connect one of the positive wires on the signal to the brown wire on the bike for running light
    Connect the other positive wire on the signal to the light green for Right turn, Black for left turn.
    Connect the negative wire to the black with white stripe on the bike.
    If when you test the running light is brighter than the turn signal swap the two positive wires
The wires to the front signals are in the headlight
Headlight Bucket colors
Ground - Black with White stripe (multiple)
Light Green - Right turn signal
Black - Left Turn Signal
Gray - Running lights
Yellow - High Beam
White - Low Beam
Orange/Blue - Aux Power (light bar connector, seperate 10 amp fuse)

The rear signals are under the taillight
Brown (becomes gray at the tail light)---running light
Black with White stripe---ground
Black---left turn
Light Green---right turn
White Wire with Black stripe---brake light
In the headlight bucket there is
Orange-with-green is (+) and black-with-white is (-) with a white (usually) connector on the end. These are for wiring up the lightbar. They are on when the key is on. They are protected by a 10amp fuse.
Black with a white stripe is ground (-) thoughout the bike

I have everything wired correctly but now the turn signals flash too fast. Is their a relay or something i need to switch or add to? Also I have no daytime running lights.
