flash

Sounds like the LED`s are taking less current than the original one`s,this will make them flash quicker,did you get a flasher unit with them? Don`t know how many flasher`s per second they should be:hmmm:

led

you can get flasher units at great expense but easiest way i found was to buy some 10holms resistors from maplins they are about£1.25 for 10  put a couple across the conections  thats both wires that lead to the indicators  they smoke a bit to start with then they are ok  they slow the winking rate down and its lot cheaper than the prices they charge on (theifbay )

led indicators

hi ... i had same prob on my blade .... i just popped to dealer and got the led flash unit for 20 quid and prob solved. you can also find em on ebay listed as a wide range frequency flash relay. you just replace your original one. as for m.o.t. i have known testers failing  fast flashing indicators because it is a timed amount, but that all depends on your testers mood at the time.

fast flashers

Hi, sorry to say but ignore all previous tips. Go to Demon Tweeks or M&P and buy flasher unit for YOUR bike ie Honda, Yamaha, about £15-£20 two mins to change over. You will find them on the same page they are selling LED indicators. Skippy :smile

Flashers

I was always led to believe that they should flash between 60 & 100 times a minute.
