Need help to slow down fast signal blinking

Because the light bulb size is different btw the new and old signals, the new signals blink much faster.
Does anyone have a fix for this...ie a resistor in the wiring or something like that...or do I just live with it?

I'm just livin' with it but you can add a resistor or go with a solid state flasher relay.

If you are using LED style bulbs int eh system they will flash fast as LED do not have the load ability like regular bulbs do. I ahve seen some try to make their own resistor set ups, make sure you are giving them some room as they will put off some heat that is why the aftermarket ones have huge heat sinks on them.

If you get rid of the load dependant relay and put in a non load dependant you will cure this problem, the system just will not tell you if you have a bulb out anymore.

I have the libertek relay on my R1, and it lets you adjust the flasher speed.

The Clear Alternatives tail light comes with 2 ballasts to slow the blink rate down.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

Clear Alternatives just released a Heavy Duty Electronic Flasher. Most applications are plug and play, for $15 you can't beat it. Lots better than messing around with installing the ceramic resistors.

are you referring to the OEM Euro signals?? if so you simply insert the US version bulbs in the Euro signals and its all good.

You can also go to any auto parts store and get a EL12 flasher relay for around $5 and replace the OEM flasher relay. Works great!. If you run a search here you will find some more info on it. Very easy to do.
