ECU 5.1 system

Does anybody knows what is that black circunference behind the ECU box? any air sensor?
I am asking this as I want to install new turn signals, those with led, and we must install small resistances which become hot on use and I am not sure if I shall leave the resistances near/behind the ECU box or install them behind the seat.

Any help is apreciated.

Don't use resistors as it get way too hot and becomes unreliable. I would change the relay instead.

Thanks minime, which one is it? If I remmember well there are 2 or 3 on the left side of the bike...I have a relay (not in use) that came on the "clearalternatives" led rear light. As I am not using that rear light maybe I can use that relay.

You need to get a 2 pin relay design for LED blinkers. The relay can be found on the left handside of the bike. The original relay requires to see a load (resistance) to make the blinkers flash. A proper LED blinker relay does not require to see this load to flash.

I use the relay which came with clear alternatives tail light. Simply replace the CA relay with the stock one. It`s plug and play.
The relay is located behind the left fairing in the middle of the three relays.

Hi minime, went check and I am not sure if those small black boxes are resistors or not (didnt measure) but left them blinking for a while and they dont get any hot (rizoma), on the contrary for my previous ones (clearalternatives) but, without changing any relay (Thanks Hattat for your imput) it works fine.

Will also try changing the relay and see what difference it makes.
