I have a 93' zx7r and though I like the bike.... the turn signals gotta go. So I ordered some flush mount LED ones figuring I just take out the old ones, splice in the new... bada bing... im done..
Well as you can see im on here asking for help so im sure you can guess by now it didn't work. I turn the left signal on and the light blinks but my turn signal indicator doesn't come on. I turn the right signal on (the one with LEDs) and they just light solid and the turn signal indicator turns on.
In a panic I popped back in the bulbs just to make sure I didn't ruin anything which I didn't so that was relief.
Not sure what to do I did some googling. Found someone mentioning they put a 100 ohm resistor on both lights and it worked fine. I went out for an entire $2 got me 2 10 ohm resistors since a friend of mine said thats what worked for him on a trailor setup. That did nothing more without it.
Then I was thinking does a bulb use more than an LED or other way around? So would I need something else to boost the power or maybe a stronger ohm resistor? Another person mentioned in the forum post (not this forum) that he bought an electronic LED flasher and it worked fine.
So saying all that here are the LEDs that I bought. If you need more info please let me know.
