LED Conversion Wow!
Like many of you, I recently converted over to LED turn signals. I didn't care for the looks of what I could find online or in local shops, so I decided to make my own system. I bought six side marker LED lights at Walmart, for about $5 each. Like everyone, I ran into the "Flasher Wall". I fiinally found one at my local NAPA Store for $12.80. It's part No. EP-34 described as a ELECT-MECH FLASHER. Just unplug the old thermal flasher and plug this one right in.
Since the front turn signal bulbs are actually two bulbs in one, I stacked two sets of the side marker lights together, using one for the parking/drive light and the other for a turn signal. Two red ones went on the rear for the turn signals back there [used amber ones for the front]
Two Valuable Lessons:
1. These side marker lights come in two varieties and they look very much alike at first glance. One has a single LED and the other has three LED's. I used the ones with 3 LED's. I got some of both and had to take the singles back for exchange.
2. Be mindful of the color codes on the wiring diagrams and make sure they match what you are looking at on the bike. I found someone had changed some wiring around and I ended up having to run a wire from my right rear turn signal to the front right to get it to work. I also found out there is a wiire available in the back to allow you to put an extra set of tail lights there if you wish.
Jst thought I'd throw this stuff out there in case it might be of assistance to someone.
