    Fitted a set of LED indicators to my 2008 KLX450R. Also fitted a Kawasaki LED flasher relay as the led's were not drawing enough current to work.

    Now the rear LED indicators work fine however the front indicator just lights up and doesn't flash. Does the same left or right.

    Worked fine when original indicators were fitted before the were forcibly removed:rofl

    Searched online but not much luck so far.

    Any ideas?

    Do they begin to flash when you rev the motor?

    If so, ride faster.

    Apparently shouldn't need resistors with the LED flasher relay fitted. May have to just rewire the front on each side direct to the rear and see if that changes. Rear flash nicley while the front glows. Wiring diagrams in the manual doesn't show indicators existing at all from what I can see.

    May have to visit an auto electrician I'm thinking.

    no resistor needed. wire the front to the same place as the rear indicator if it isn't that way already
