mirrors w/ turn signals blinking too fast

I have a set of mirrors with intergrated LED signals on them (cheapys). I need to slow them down, as they blink very fast. I remember doing this before for my old cbr for the rear tail. I used resistors, but can not remmeber what type and where to get them.

Any sugestions? I want to get it locally so I am not waiting on parts, automotive stores etc

lol i thought i used resistors before, but could be wrong. They get hot yes, but do they produce enough heat for any damage to happen?

they could, depending on mounting location, etc... I originally was going to toss resistors into the frame of the bike in the rear, but when I discovered this mess I also discovered a flasher so was able to avoid that route. I spent a couple of hours with an iron and shrink wrap "fixing" that max.

Is this it? and a fair price?

Custom LED Universal Flasher Relay for Aftermarket LEDs /Signals [ELFR-1] : Bayside Performance, Canadian Source for 98-2010 Motorcycle Parts, Sportbike Accessories And Apparel

Also I will be changing the rear to smaller, and possibley LED units. Bayside notes the following:

NOTE: In some rare instances, when there are NO incandescent loads on the blinker system (LEDs front and rear), one pair of our Stage I Load Equalizers will also be required to prevent a wide range of blinker problems. These problems are all associated with a lack of resistive load on an all-LED blinker system that was designed for incandescent lamps. Problems such as, but not limited to: the 4-way blink problem (both sides blinking at the same time), the no-blink problem, and Integrated LED Tail Lights staying in "blinker mode" due to non-zero blinker voltages.

Anyone have this setup?

+1^^^^^ Just put it in two weeks ago and unsoldered the resistors from my Rizoma LED's to save space in the headlight bucket for the Koso gauge. No issues so far.


I should have done this from day UNO. Would have saved me a ton of time.
