    Turn signals are not blinking

    I have a 82 cb750. I replaced my rear brake and turn signals with a new l.e.d. unit and now the turn signals come on and stay on and not blinking. Did anyone else replace their lights and have this problem?

    LED doesnt have enough current draw to make the oem flasher work. There are electronic flashers that are designed for led lights and some people add resistor kits to the turn signal circuits to give the flasher enough load to work.

    Do you know where I can get the right electronic flasher or a website to help add a resistor? Thanks

    Might be worth trying some of the load resistors that are sold on ebay. Just look up motorcycle led turn signal resistors. I dont use turn signals so I dont have to mess with them on bikes but I have had to wire in resistors on a couple of cars when the owner put in leds when I was a tech.
