Flasher?
« on: April 25, 2008, 01:13:03 PM »
After swapping my bulbs to LED's they no longer have enough draw for the flasher, which I figured would happen.  BUT,  does anyone have suggestions of what flasher to go with now?

You can get some "load leveling" diodes so your current flasher will work with the LEDs.  Dennis Kirk sells them as do many other motorcycle accessory shops.

If you have an accident on a motorcycle, it's always your fault. Tough call, but it has to be that way. You're in the right, and dead -on a bike. The principle is not to have any accident. If you're involved in an an accident, it's because you did not anticipate. Then, by default, you failed.

Any car parts store has "electronic" flashers. that usually require much less draw to make them operate.  I picked one up for about 6 bucks at advance auto.

So it's just your every day automotive 2 prong flasher?  If so, that's easy enough to come by!
