So, from the guys that have already installed the Custom LED, which of these things are needed? It lists all of these as "recommended" accessories, but I'm having trouble figuring out if any of them are "needed" to install:
ELFR-1 Flasher Relay - The description of the LED board made it seem like the board itself already should work with stock flashers
OEM Blinker Connectors - I'm guessing this is just for convenience so you don't have to cut the stock lines...makes it more plug and play
Blaster-X Control Switch - Unlocks more features of the LED board?
Reviving an old thread because I just picked one of these up. I had gone through this thread before the purchase and based on the above, did not get any of the options. But looking at the instructions I received, it looks like I will need the Control Switch if I want to use the stock red lens. It indicates that the stock setting is for clean lenses, and if you want to re-use your OEM red lens you'll need to program the blinkers to blink only with red LED's. So... that sucks. They should probably have either
a. included the switch and just tack on the $5 to the price
b. include a clear lens and add on the appropriate cost
c. at the very least make the wording very clear that the switch is necessary for the LED to function properly with the OEM lens, which I suspect the majority of users intend to do.
d. Or duh - just set the damn default setting to work with the OEM red lens, which both the 919 and 599 appear to use.
Here's the current language on the product page:
"Recommended accessories: ELFR-1 Flasher Relay & OEM Blinker Connectors & Blaster-X Control Switch."
And here's the emphasized language on the Control Switch page:
"This switch is not necessary for standard integrated tail light operation."
Looks like I'm gonna be paying another $5 plus probably as much for shipping... grrrrr.
