Bought some flush mounts through the local dealer here in Indy, In.
got home and took everything apart to install... and wham!

the flush mounts have two wires, where the harness has three wires.
green blue black
when pluged into the blue and black, nothing happend with signal on.
when pluged into the green and black, flashed once or twice then stopped.

so whats going on here? whats with the wiring or wth am i supose to do?

Are they l.e.d? If so, you need to wire in resistors, my bike did that with flushmounts and I went through all this wire troubleshooting to find out it was because there was not enough resistance to the flasher. The signals on the guage cluster stopped flashing until I fixed it also.

it looks like it has a built in resistor.. is it just not big enough?

how do i know what size resistor to wire in
and im asuming wire it in series to obviously use the voltage.

Each application would be different depending on the lights. Best thing to do would be to install all the factory lights and check the resistance at the flasher with an ohm meter, then install your L.e.d's and see how much more resistance you need. Or... tobefast.com sells that flasher that works with pretty much any l.e.d combo.

when i did a search i saw alot of people are using that or the adujstible one.
i've got the led integrated tail also, that seems like a better option.

so what does that all do? just replaces factory flasher to make the leds blink slower?
how exactly does it change the blinking and such to make them work?
electronics are interesting to me, just wondering how it works if you know.
