LED's run off a different current to standard bulbs and an LED relay should be used. You can pick these up for as little as a fiver.

I suspect that the LED Lights are not giving the flasher enough of a load. You may want to put a 5 ohm 1/4 watt resistor in series with the light and see if that helps. Let me know if they light better that way.

I fitted led indicator lights to front now flashes fast ,how do i slow it down?w it down.


Most flasher units are actually designed to flash at a faster rate when a smaller current is drawn from them. This is by design to let the rider know there is a failed lamp.
Two 21 watt lamps would draw approximately 3.5 amps from the flasher unit. An LED lamp would only draw typically below 0.1A (Depending on specification and number of LEDs) then the total current for your setup would be around 2A - This is low enough to be seen as a lamp failure.
Flasher units for LED indicators are available on eBay or Amazon with prices ranging between five and ten pounds.

Blikers only work with running lights off


You have the tail light you just installed wired wrong or if the new tail light is a LED tail light your looking at the LED's possibly not drawing enough power to make the flasher work. change the flasher to a LED specific one.

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.
The post that had the link said that it fixes fast blink and no blink conditions. http://www.greggscustoms.com/instruc...istor_Inst.pdf

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.

Flashers


You are missing you rear turn signals. Yes there should be a flasher but it requires all lights to be working before it will flash. It needs the original loads on the system. If led sights are installed they should be accompanied by loads that fool the flasher into thinking that the original bulbs are still there.

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.
