  • Solving fast blinking/no blinking

    Sort of a addition to the LED How-to:

    Replacing stock flasher with load independant unit.

    $2.49 at Auto Zone.


    Locate the stock flasher unit.
    in front of the battery box


    It is held in place with a rubber mount, just pull it out.



    Unplug

    As you can see this uses a tiny spade type plug.
    These are available.. Or you can cut and splice in a connector.
    I sourced two connectors from an old clutch switch.



    Soldered them onto wires and added shrink wrap.



    Standard connectors for the flasher unit, I like to
    add a little solder..





    I can just plug the wires in.
    I added a wrap or two of tape, as well as dilectric grease.

    I weather proofed the flasher with some shrink wrap just to be professional. Find a good spot to tie it in place and there you go.


    Works perfectly..
    Took about 30 minutes..

    Nice writeup man...great pics too!

    It's wierd, maybe I have a differnt flasher plug than you do, but when I put in my gixxer LED brake/tail/turn light I got an electronic flasher at discount auto that plugged right into my flasher plug

        What model year bike is that? I think the 98+ is different. Unless I am looking at the wrong part.

          I think this might answer your question.

                  From the sounds of your other posts, it may not be a relay at all, it may be bypassed completely. I'd do a continuity test from the relay to the switch, and the relay to the lights to be sure it's even part of the circuit before I bought a relay and wired it in.

                    will do. Thanks again!!

                    Sorry bout all the dumb souning things I ask about. I havent owned a bike for many years and then I never had to work on them except little things. I guess what I am not understanding is if I turn the blinker switch to the left or right the blinkers do turn on but will not flash. So that means I have current to them. But if the relay is broke, They would not flash correct? I'm sorry I dnt have a tester to do what you said.
                    I am great at working on cars n rebuilding motors but not this stuff I guess.

                      It will definately work, and if nothing else... your set up in the future to never have to pay the rediculous amount of $60 for a dang flasher relay. Just $3 local auto shops.
