EP-34 relay is compatible with our stock wiring and will work with LED's.
What part number is on the one you purchased?

new rider 9984 my relay went out and i went to autozone to see if they had one and it turns out they had two that looked like the oem and they both had different part numbers one of them worked on the bike the other didnt come to find out one had opposite polarity than the other you might want to look into that

Does this sound like I am on the right track?
I sometimes needed to reach back & slap the Left Rear turn signal to start it blinking.
Removed and cut new electrical ends for re-splicing/connection. Problem went away.

kc2dgq Just for the heck of it.....wiggle the wires coming out of the front blinker housings and see if anything changes.

I have seen where the cables squash the wiring against the housing and pinch the blinker wires causing a short.
