    Default LED turn signals not blinking

    Hey guys, so this is my first post on here and I've been the proud owner of an 81 suzuki gs450t for almost a year now. I just replaced the stock turn signals with LED ones and they come on fine but they don't flash.

    I've read about people having issues where they flash really quickly and need to get a new flasher for it but i haven't found too much about them not blinking at all and just staying constant. Was just looking for some insight before i went ahead and started blindly replacing things. Thanks in advance and im looking forward to being a part of the gs community.

    The turn signal flasher unit relies on a certain amount of current being used by the turn signals to make it flash. You'll need an electronic flasher unit. I got one at my local auto parts store for around $10. If you have auto canceling turn signals, there are some complications with that, but I don't know the specifics.

    When it flashes too fast, that is too much current for a stock flasher. With the LED signals, You have the opposite problem; Not enough current for a stock flasher.

    Also, add your location to profile and bike model /year to signature line (goto UserCP). Then both of those show up in every post and is easier for folks to help you.

    Also, do introduce yourself in "owners".
