Turn Signal ?

Stupid question, I am looking at the wiring diagram and can't see which color wire is + and -. How can I tell?

I am assuming you are talking about the wires on the LED? I will let the more knowledgeable chime in, but I am not sure it matters with an LED.

Fwiw I am using something similar to this

To put some signals on song didn't have to cut into the harness. The ones I am using are two wore and have bullet connectors on the other end.

I am using a set of the stock connectors spliced into the LED wires, just wondering if there is a difference of + and - or it doesn't matter. I know on the fronts you don't use 1 of the wires as its the running lights wire.

On the bike .... green is ground, orange or blue is 12volts.

One cheap LEPs .... black is usually ground, but they will only light up one way most times,so just touch the leads to a battery to figure it out.

Put the resistors in the 12v side wired in series.

That means they are wired in-line. Just connect them, they should work. IF they don't light up, reverse the connection.

Rizomas perhaps?

You could also buy a relay built for LED's and not bother to put a relay on each indicator. Saves some room.
