    L.E.D. Conversion

    Hi I just got a 1986 honda Nighthawk 450sc and bought a pair of
    aftermarket L.E.D. turnsignals to replace my stock ones up front. When I
    installed the turnsignals they wouldnt blink, the would light up with
    everything but when I switched on the blinker the light would just go dead
    and the flasher indicator would blink at about 3 times the speed of the
    original. I am guessing this has something to do with resistance since
    L.E.D.s use less energy. Should I go ahead and by another pair and
    install all 4 at once? Will that fix the problem or is my flash relay to
    "big"? Is there some way to install resistors(where could I get them) on
    the wire to cut down the energy returning to the flasher relay...I am a
    novice at this so I probaly am way off but any info would be awesome.
    thanks Jeremy

    Buy a new flasher that is electronic. I don't like the resistors because they do get hot, another thing to fail and defeat the purpose to use LED's to begin with; less power.

    I agree a new flasher relay would solve your problems without having to use a resistor. Check out these sites:

    Custom LED Electronic LED Flasher Relay - “No Load” Plug And Play

    Clear Alternatives: FLASHER

    Both should be plug and play for your bike. Hope that helps.
