For some time my indicators did not work,now they donot work, i think it may be the indicaton relay due to it is common to both sides along the switching gear,would i be thinking correctly,aso were is the location of the indicator relay your with lots of thanks grin

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
Sounds to me like you have made an error somehere, the indicators are not meant to be cut only just cut back the insolation and solder the alarm indicator wires onto the left and right indicators, best to the rear, DONOT CONNECT AT FLASHER RELAY, Recheck your connections, only cut the system you wish to protect ie imobiliser alarm, follow the instructions carefully if you have any, slightly grey area, with security devices as the information in the wrong hands could have bad concequences
do you have suficiant charge in the battery? were the old indicators the standard kawasaki ones? if so you you must replace the relay with 1 for led indicators, the old relay expects that when you turn on the indicators it will have to suply 12 volts at 42watts, this is not the case with led indicators, i think the horn is coinsedental and not related to the indicator fault, poss needs replacment horn
have you checked all the bulbs and wiring to them if they are all ok you mite need to replace the flasher relay i no you may think that it only makes indicators flash bit in some cases stops the indicators from working completly whan broke
Hi Richard, Just a thought, I had a similar problem fitting Led bulbs to my Volvo and sorted it by putting the correct resistors in line.
Beware these get very warm so need safe/cool area for mounting.
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.
or can I disconnect OEM indicators and connect one up to see if it works ok.
Basically I dont want to rewire the bike for the indicators not to work!!
just installed my LEDs a couple months back. All I did was to change the flasher relay that you can buy at local auto store for less than $10 bucks. and add resistors inline that are 8ohm 25watt. You can get the resistors from radio shack. i only needed to install the resistor on the front indicators. I didn't do them all at the same time. So, the rears worked fine with just the flasher relay for me but depends on your LEDs. Be safe and just get the resistors and relay and all will work just fine.
And you don't need to rewire your bike. ....The problem is that the LEDS do not pull enough power to trip the relay to flash and the resistors correct that. And do them all at once..,,,
