Especially if the LED is packaged up for a specific application, for example to replace an existing incandescent bulb. You need to have information for the specific part you're using to avoid a mishap.

You can also buy a $15 blinker relay specifically for leds. I got mine at cycle gear and also online. PLugs right into the harness where the old one was and you don't need to mess with anything.
