LED Flasher Relay Question

I have done a bunch of searching and have found a lot of information, but nothing that answers the questions I have.

First off, the bike is a 2007 r6. I have flush mounts up front, so I put in a $10 thermal flasher relay to correct the blinker speed (while I still had regular incandescent bulbs in the rear). I am now trying to put LED signals in the rear as well, but the rears will just stay solid with that current flasher, no flashing or blinking.

So I bought resistors for the rear, but they were getting wayy too hot and there wasnt really anywhere to safely mount them under the rear seat. So then, I went and bought an electronic flasher from autozone, and this got rid of the solid light issue, but now they flash inconsistently and are very dim. After doing some reading, I went and bought a Tridon EP-35 LED compatible flasher (3 prong.) Since there is an extra prong, I ran a ground wire to the 3rd prong and now all the blinkers are solid again. Was I supposed to do something different with the 3rd prong on the flasher?

Can anyone please shine some light on this for me? Thanks in advance!!

Re: LED Flasher Relay Question

The best solution is the $19 ($5 shipping) Custom LED Flasher relay.

It plugs right in and replaces the stock relay that is under the seat.


It just so happens I have a lightly used one for sale. It's yours for $15 shipped. I don't need it anymore because I'm going track only and I don't need lights

thanks, but I actually just figured it all out. I was going off the box as far as the connection pattern, so I just switch the ground to a different prong and it all works perfectly now. Thanks again and GLWS.
