I have a 2004 brutale 750 and the turn signals are pretty much falling right off. Wondering if anyone has any good aftermarket ones they used that were relatively easy to put on. I live in the U.S.A.
Will those work for the front too? I’m sort of a noob when it comes to electrical
Yes. I fitted them front and back. The work on my Tiger was to solder the factory connectors off the old turn signals to the LEDs and mount them. Then replace the factory flasher relay in the nose cone with an aftermarket LED compatible relay. That’s because the factory relay uses a bimetallic strip that bends as the current flow heats up the strip. It bends because the two metals have different coefficients of expansion due to heat. That breaks the contact and the strip relaxes as it cools - re-making the contact. And so it flashes.Will those work for the front too? I’m sort of a noob when it comes to electrical
Did you need a conversion kit for yours? I was looking at rizomas and a lot of people said to make sure you purchase the conversion kit to make them fit.
I'm not sure if these are exactly the same as mine. I got mine from Design Corse. They look very similar and are quite small.
Agree with LED compatible relay as the default solution. Unfortunately some bikes don't have a separate relay - my Ducati S4RS has it built into the instrument circuit board and I wasn't about to touch that! I've also read on other boards that those LED relays are not compatible with the CANBUS on some makes e.g. BMW. So resistors are sometimes the only alternative.You don't need resistors anyway. Just use an LED blinker relay. I never understand why people persist with resistors when a simple plug and play solution is available that doesn't require bastardising your wiring harness.
