This is a step by step on how to install a LED Flasher relay.

Tools
Zap strap
Wire Cutters
crimps or soldering iron
Heat shrink
Electrical tape
wire
Flasher Relay Gorte # 44891

Step 1

Remove secondary gear case cover ( Left side chrome cover )

Step 2
Locate the turnsinal/side-stand relay. Once you have done this you will need to cut the Brown and the Blue with Brown wire (pins F and G)



Set 3

Connect The harnes side of pin G (brown wire)to the input side of the new relay (i soldered and heat shrunk mine) and then connect the harness side of pin F (blue wire) to the load side of the relay.



Step 4

Ground the pigtail onf the relay to a bolt on the frame, and tie the relay up out of the way.



THis is how the light now work. My LED are on the front fairing that lowered the laod.

i finally decided to quit being lazy and do this since i keep telling everybody else to do it.

but instead of a 3pin electronic flasher, i just got a 2pin electronic flasher. then i just pulled the brown and blue wire out of the plug body, and put a set of spade connectors on and plugged the relay in. whole deal took probably bout 10minutes.

i didn't see the need for going with a 3pin flasher and having to ground the 3rd pin. that's why they make the 2pin flashers. 1 less wire to worry about.

kick me if i missed it, but what is the point of this mod?
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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the info, your bike looks great.
I think leds would a great winter upgrade.
Can i get some info on were you purchase your lights from?

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?
