Load resistors for Melotti led's

I just got a sweet set (4) of Melotti led turn signals for my Brute and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good load resistor for them. I've got them all pre-wired and ready to go. Does anyone else have these installed? I think they look quite choice. Much appreciated!

I have the Melotti signals on my 1090RR...

But the 1090RR has LED signals all around. If your Brutale has bulbs you may need the resistors.

I got these on my 1090RR - no resistors needed. Not sure about the earlier models. I guess it would be a trial/error game on models with conventional OEM bulbs.

Resistors for Melotti indicators

Put these on my 2009 1078 Brutale. Bought cheap resitors off ebay ( 4 for $5 or so). Work fine.

Cheers

BB74, if you have done the calc and know the resistance you need, go to an electronics supply house, like Radio Shack or Do-It-Yourself Electronics and find heat sink resistors in the spec that you need. Those resistors will get hot, so they need to be able to shed heat.

Had to put resistors with the melotti LEDs on my 1090r. Originally it had 6w normal globes. I used item 300682920786 on eBay.
Been fine for 3 months now.

The game trial/error is never advisable when it comes to electricity, especially not on a motorcycle like the Brutale (and his famous SPU ).

Simply, use Ohm's law, and/or DC multimeter to be sure.

Found these in the basement...

They were from a set of LED front turn signals for my old CBR929RR. If the collective thinks they'll work, I'll send them to the OP...

Where's Donsy?

If you replace the flasher unit with one for LEDs, then no resistors are necessary; I run Melloti indicators at the rear, and standard at the front.

Try RS Electronics, or similar.

The older I get, the faster I was!
