    Switched my signals to LED and now when I switch left or right they all come on and stay on. Kinda confused lol. Any help?

    • Turn signals operate on a bimetallic switch called a flasher. As current flows through the bimetalic strip in the switch, it heats up and curls, causing an open circuit. once current stops flowing the strip cools and straightens again until it make contact, allowing current to once again flow. L.E.D. lights use such a small amount of current, the bimetalic strip doesn't get hot enough to curl and open the circuit. For this, you need a flasher made for L.E.D. lights.

    • Thank you for the help. I've got a 2003 rebel 250. Any specific or special flasher you recommend. Brand wise?

    • I can't locate my stock flasher. Sorry for being a bother lol. JahkiBoy Grey

    • You can get a resistor at any auto parts store for about 15 dollars. You wire the resistor between the turn signal and the wiring harness they will work great
