hey guys need some help with this. i have installed new LED indicators on the front of my bike (the left side only so far) and they seem to work fine if you just hold the wires together but as soon as you connect them properly it blows the 7.5 fuse under the left cover at the front of the bike. i have no idea why this is happening and any info or ideas would be great!!!!

Polarity possibly? Overloading the circuit?

What year is your bike? 08?

On the 08's this is the wiring:

Black = Ground (-)
Red = Running Light (+)
Green/Brown = Blinker (+)

Makes sure you have them hooked up right!

Also, are the signals made for this bike specifically? If they don't already have the proper resistor installed they can draw too much current and blow your fuse.
