Turn signals...

Ok, here's the deal. I had this rear turn signals with the fender eliminator but they had a leak and the water went through so I had to replace them. I found this ones on eBay and I just replaced them. The only thing is that they work fine and all but, I notice that the lights are blinking a little bit faster than before. Both, rear and fronts works great but they like I said, blink faster than before. I bough the ones specifically for my Honda 919 '06. 12v 20w. Is it normal?
Thanks guys!

Did you happen to buy LED turn signals? If so then you are looking for a flasher relay that will slow the blink just search LED and flasher here and it should point you in the right direction.

+1 to what undercover919 said, it sounds like you bought an led unit and so you'll need a flasher relay. customled makes a great flasher relay that is plug and play. while you're at it, i advise you to look into the customled integrated unit as i've no doubt in my mind you likely picked up one of the cheapo clear alternatives units and they are simply garbage. do yourself a favor and get rid of the unit you have now by moving your turn signals out of the intergated unit OR buy a high quality unit such as the customled.

do a search for some videos and you'll see the difference.
