LED Indicator Problems & Flasher Relay?

Hi Guys, Anyone reading my previous threads will see that I am having problems with the indicator flashing rate after fitting front led indicators. Also I cannot find a flasher relay? The wiring diagram does not show one? I could have probably resolved the problem by fitting a flasher relay that copes with both kinds of indicators (these are available). This bike does not seem to have a flasher relay, is the flash rate controlled by the ecu? If anybody has found a led indicator that works at the correct flash rate, please let me know. I think someone said that Oberon bar end indicators worked at correct rate? I do not want to fit those as I wanted to fit Acerbis hand guards, but maybe the normal fit Oberon led indicators may be an option Any help/advice greatly appreciated. Regards.

Modern Ducatis (and cars) don't have a conventional flasher. The blink rate is controlled by the dash cpu. The blink rate change is used to indicate that a bulb is out (by sensing low resistance). Using a resistor will fool the cpu into blinking correctly.

What you need is a Badlands load equalizer. They are available from Zodiac, Custon Chrome or MCS dealers. The led indicators do not draw sufficient current to activate the relay properly and the load equalizer corrects this.

Replaced Aprilia rs50 2006 indicators with LED ones + LED flasher relay though they light up but DON'T FLASH?

I am not a electronic wizz but i believe the led's will light up but do not have enough resistance to cause the internal breakers to work.
I found this.

Hi, led will only light if they are wired in the correct order, earth to earth and live to live, you have replaced the switch to no avail, the only thing left is the flasher relay, this type of indicator must be fitted with a relay suitable for led indicators
The original relay would not be suitable causing problems as you have described, it may be you have the correct relay, led aftermarket relays are not so reliable as original equiptment as used with standard indicators, and sometimes burn out as they are solid state an obviouse burning to the silicone backing is a give away to its condition, if it shows signs of burning or any other damage replace it as so if you still have the original one fitted, lastly you dont say which model your bike is, on some suzuki motorcycles the relay is not just. A flasher relay it has multi functions and correct wireing of the relay is not so easy, unfortunatly suzuki is the only manufactor that specific led flasher relays are not listed for and a universal 1 must be used with the above difficulties

Indiactors wont flash they just stay on what could be the problem yamaha fzr 250r 1993

Does your horn sound normally when you have indicators on, if it's muffled or goes quieter with indicators on, you may have very low voltage available from your battery. Your CDI/Reg-Rec will not cope with a battery below the parameters set. IE, it will stop taking a generated charge below a certain voltage, indicating a dying battery.
If one of the indicator globes is blown (including dash indicator) they will not flash. If all globes are good, try cleaning the flasher relay connections, or the flasher relay itself may have died.

Hello! I have a 08 Honda XR650L and i am changing the signals and tail lights over to L.E.D. I have an IC Relay that needs to be installed because the L.E.D'S need less power to work. Question: Where do...

remove stock relay ,find out which is live in on the new ic relay and connect this to the blue wire,find the live output from the relay and connect this to the grey wire, the last wire may need to be connected to ground to provide an ground signal to make it flash.

Indicators flash too fast

Hi and welcome to FixYa, Based on your description, possibilities are: 1 of the signal bulb pair has burned out; bulbs used are smaller or of lower wattage; LED type indicator lights are used. Replace flasher with electronic version. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Led indicators honda xlr 125 "NOT FLASHIN AT RIGHT SPEED "

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The reason that the flashing speed of LED indicators are faster/different from the standard bulbs is because the original flasher were designed for the current flow of bulb types. A LED type indicator offers very low resistance and consumer very little current hence the original flasher fails to operated correctly.

Your idea of changing the flasher relay is correct. Electronic/LED flashers are available here, here and/or here.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
