919 Flasher Relay

Is there anyone on here that still has their stock flasher relay on their 919? The reason I'm asking is that I installed a Clear Alternatives LED taillight w/ turn signal integrator on my bike this weekend and just for the heck of it, I didn't wire in the resistors to slow the flash rate down. When I had it all hooked up and tried them out, they didn't flash all fast like I have read that they would without the resistor. I'm wondering if the PO had installed an aftermarket flasher relay for some reason, but I don't have anything to compare to. When other's have installed LED turn signals, have you had issues with the flash rate?

Thanks in advance

The blink rate doesn't go hyper-horny like I expected...but they are quicker and I believe it puts them outside of DOT spec. Both of my 9ers have been modded, but I'll see if I can't get a video of Alinosa's stock bike next to mine sometime in the near future (PM me a reminder in a couple days if I haven't posted it)

If all you have is the CA Integrated light in the back, you will notice the blink rate will fluctuate. I noticed that it would change depending on the RPM's of the motor. I'm sure that it had more to do with the stator output at different RPM's and resistance that the stock bulb provided. I could sit at a light and while Idle it would blink fast but if I twisted the throttle it would slow down for a second or two. Once I switched to LED's all the way around I have no more fluctuation in blink rate, it still is not as fast as some of the others I've seen. I kind of like it, because it draws more attention to my signals... IMO.

I'll have to take a closer look this evening (didn't get to ride today), but I think that it's actually flashing at the same rate as the stock turn signals. I haven't taken off the stock stuff yet because I haven't figured out what I'm going to do to the rear section yet and I haven't found new front signals I like yet.

And actually, I was wondering if anyone had a picture of the stock flasher relay so I can compare it to the one that is currently on my bike.

I'll have to verify when I get home this evening, but I'm thinking that flasher is different than the one that I was looking at on my bike this weekend. I kind of think the PO had changed out some of the stuff on the bike but put it back to stock before he sold it to me. That and put a patch in the rear tire and wasn't kind enough to let me know about it. Only found that out this weekend when I was replacing the tire (just worn out, no damage from the patch)
