    I think Your LED lights are going bad. Same thing happened to me on my H7 LED bulbs. I have just replaced after close to 2 years.

    I agree with Matt that the source of your flickering lights may be the lights themselves. If the other items running from your subharness are OK, about the only possible subharness fault would be the connection of the light’s wiring to the harness. That would be easy to check. All of the items running on the subharness share the same relay. Be open to the possibility that if you switch the power source of the lights to a new relay wired to the battery, your lights might still flicker if they are bad.

    Spent yesterday re-installing my led lights with a separate wiring harness that came with a relay. All went well is working and no more flickering! I skipped the switch since I just wanted the lights on whenever I was riding was good enough for me. Also I mistakenly bought H4 led lightbulb and installed it to the headlight. And yes aware of the glare and etc. Appreciate all the feedbacks!!

    Take the same picture from a 100 Yards back...........can the front turn signals be seen or are they hidden in the light wash?
