ELFR-1 Turn Signal Flasher

Just installed my Clear Alternatives integrated tail light. As expected the signals flash fast, knew that was coming. So after searched the ELFR-1 flasher from CustomLed seems to be the answers for 919's. Only question I have about it is if it will work with front and rear led signals. It says it will in most case but in some won't due to the lack of current draw. Is the 919 an exception to that rule? Don't currently have LED fronts but will have. Are the indicators in the gauge cluster regular bulbs? Thinking if they are they may cause enough draw to make things function properly with the EFLR-1 flasher.

grab one of these... i run one and it works perfect with my led blinkers... its time based and handles .02 to 20amps.

3 Pin Electronic LED Flasher Blinker Fix Turn Signal : eBay Motors (item 300402484380 end time Apr-01-10 02:25:49 PDT)

got to me here in cali in 7 business days if i remember correctly.

3 pins ... B = Battery +... E = Earth (-) ... L = Load to the lights.

If you already have your led flasher if you wire it where the old one was it will make all the lights flash at the same rate. And the gauge cluster uses leds for the blinkers and the rest of the signal lights... the only lights that are regular bulbs are the back lights.

I have the EFLR-1 flasher on my bike with LEDs all around. It's pretty much plug and play and flash rate is pretty much close to stock. No other equipment needed.

Same here, ELFR-1 with LEDs front and rear - installs in about 5 seconds (once the seat is off), normal flash rate, and no issues in almost 3 years of regular use.

I had one like the ebay listing on my first 919. It works the same as the ELFR-1 but takes longer to install. $4.99 is really cheap, I paid $12 at an auto parts store more than 4 years ago.

Both products will do what you want.

ya the ELFR seems to be plug and play... the one on ebay you just have to cut the stock connector off and put on some standard female blade connectors. And make a simple ground wire (you can go right to the frame) A lil more intensive but its much cheaper

Sounds like the ELFR-1 is the way to go.

Mine is on it's way also. I like plug and play just because it's clean and simple.

Will the ELFR-1 work if you have a CA in the rear and the stocks signals on the front?

I have stock front signals and an integrated clear alternatives rear and the EFLR-1 works perfect.
