    Greetings all. Im in the process of swapping the indicators of my old GS to LED items. It has the "K" type relay. Has anyone done this yet? Id like to know if there is a way to change the relay easily, or is it better to use the resistors?
    I am kinda committed to the LED lights, as I bought a set as soon as I saw one of the old stalks had broken.
    What do you say?

    Did you catch my Airhead LED pr0n thread?

    Plenty of info there, but long and short of it is, the Kisan is probably the best electronic relay alternative. "HD" or LED "compatible" relays are a crap shoot. Resistors defeat half the point of going LED.
