If you have LED lights you will need to install resistors to slow them down. The relay is between the headlights. It is attached to the right HL with a little rubber grommet.

You dont need resistors if you install a LED relay.Relay will take care of it.

Resistors can cause problems, since they put more load on the electrical system. I had resistors on my led's, but the current draw was so high, the other lights on the bike would dim every time a signal would flash when the engine was at idle. Changing to a relay got rid of that problem. Also, the relay is plug and play.....no splicing into each turn signal wire and no worries about where to put the resistors so that heat from them won't melt plastic somewhere. The only drawback is having to remove the front fairing to get to the relay between the headlights.

Well some of you obviously dont know how to wire the resistor up. The LED lights put less load on the system & thats the reason they blink so fast. If you put the resistors in they equal out the load that was originally in the system & thus slow the blinks down. The LED relay is an option but sometimes they are hard to find & more for the automotive side of things. I've put many many LED lights in with resistors with absolutely no problems at all. The resistors themselves do get a little warm but no where near hot enough to melt the plastic or wires they are around if installed correctly.

My LED relay has worked flawlessly for over a year. I'd recommend it over resistors when it comes to LED turn signals.

The flasher is part of the gauge cluster. Not replaceable, though you can bypass it with an LED relay.

Here's a thread from way back explaining how to do it.
