Smile LED Indicators.

I bought them cheap,$10 the set,fitted them and flashed a bit to fast, started wiring in the voltage reduction units and found it a problem around the headlight area. Spock chimed in with some advice on a Flasher unit"$27" that reduced voltage and brought the flashing speed into line.
Thanks Spock all worked out well.
I now have some Flash, Flashers that blink at the right speed.

What LED's did you buy?
I sure hope you didn't wire in any resistors or "balancers" to fix the flash rates....that just adds current draw to the circuit and defeats the purpose of using LED's.

dump the "voltage reduction units" if the LED's work on 12V and replace your flasher unit with an EP34 Electronic Flasher and you should be good.

I was looking into LED's for tail and front blinkers. A lot of the info states they are not bright compared to incandescent bulbs. True?

/\ x2 KC2DGQ is the one with all the LED knowledge and he makes LED replacement boards for most blinker housings along with a few other items. If you have any questions he is the one to contact. The quality of his work for others is on the same level as he uses on his bike and that is something to see.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
