Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
I have just fitted some LED rear indicators (with resistors) and some new smaller (filament type) to the front of my '97 Fatboy.
When the engine isn't running, they work perfectly.
With the engine on tick over they work perfectly.
When I rev the engine (standing still or riding along) they stop flashing and stay on.
I assume this must be to do with the wrong reistance to the circuit when the power in the battery is increased?
Am I right...any suggestions as to how to test and cure.
You probably need to install a load equalizer

Your battery will be charged at a lower rate as the revs rise, you will need the final output rate to get an idea of what value the resister you will need to change it to, as a rule your indicator relay should be rate at 21w+ 21w now if your indicaters are flashing at higher flash rate then you will need to increase the resister rate and the opposite to make it speed up. what values you need will depend on what resister you already have , match it on a chart and then replace with next value until you get thew right flsh rate. as votage increases resistence increases.
