I got a European 2018 Brutale.


We have LED indicators, rated 3,2 V and 2,08 W.


Now all aftermarket indicators are rated 12V.


I tested so many resistors from 5 to 33 Ohms - no one works as the voltage gets too low.


Now my idea is to get a US spec relay (or switch, whatever you call it). US indicators are rated 12 V and 6 W, what can get me solve the problem with standard aftermarket indicators and resistors.


Has anybody a pic of it, how many wires are in that relay?
It is located under the right radiator fairing.


Thanks a lot, I appreciate your help [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.mvagusta.net/forum/images/MVagusta_net_2016/smilies/tango_face_smile.png[/IMG]

This is the relay from my 2014 F3 800.

Thanks a lot.


MV seems to have changed the indicator thing to a very complicated design on EC Euro 4 models.
The relay now has 12 wires and some dealers say there is now way to install aftermarket 12 V indicators.
They say that the relay communicates over CAN bus with the dash.


It seems nobody found a solution on that yet.
May be a US spec Euro4 relay would fit......

Not sure I understand what you are trying to do here. Are you wanting to replace our LED indicators with incandescent globes of 12V rating or are you replacing your LED indicators with aftermarked LED indicators?
If I can take a punt that it is the latter I suspect what you may be doing is putting the resistor in series with the indicator. If that is the case no wonder you're having problems. The resistor must be wired in parallel with the indicator to increase the current draw. I fitted Barracuda 'idea' LED to my TVL as I broke one rear indicator and have been waiting for 6 months for a replacement. In order to get the right flash rate I installed a 150 ohm resistor in parallel. I can tell you more but as mentioned above I don't really understand your issue.

No no,


I put the resistor parallel to the 1W 12V LEDs. The problem is that MV uses 3 volt indicators and not 12V ones.



Believe me, there is no way to fix it using just transistors.


In the meantime I solved the problem using this:

I will write a how to on this when I got some time.
