    I put the LED Turn Signal Relay in on my 2014 and the turn signals still blink very rapidly.

    I have not installed mine yet, because the vendor has not shipped the remaining LED Bulbs to me yet. I need to follow up with that vendor again. I paid those SOBs, Where's my stuff people?

    I will let you know how my installation goes, once I get all the LED Bulbs for this project.

    Is the turn signal relay on the 2012 in the same location as the 2014; under the left air vent?

    I did a while ago, still working great. 10 minutes removal, 10 minutes modification, 10 minutes reinstall. Cost: free.

    I finally received this unit and installed only one LED Replacement bulb and I experienced the same as you did. I figured out at a minor modification needs to be done for it function correctly. You will need to remove the cover, which can be remove very easily and then remove at least one of the resistors as noted in the image below. Be careful not to used the modified unit with 3 regular bulbs, it will "FRY" the unit. I speak for experience here.

    I ordered the flasher unit off ebay ... went to get 2 led 1156 and 2 led 1157 (front) on Amazon and the number of reviews noting DOA and quick dying scares me. Where are you all getting your leds. Thanks Boz

    Be very careful of which Replacement LED Bulbs that you get, not all are created equal. I would recommend the same ones that I used from www.autolumination.com in Amber, not Red or White...

    I have been using these on my ST1300 for months now and they are "AWESOME"...

    Here's the full information regarding me LED Turn Signal Conversion. Please follow along with the image in my Installation Album.

    I recommend the following items, which I used for this conversion.

    1. Replacement LED Bulbs in both 1157 and 1156 in Amber 2 of each from www.autolumination.com

    2. Replacement Flasher Unit rated for use with LEDs, I got them from Amazon.


    Installation Process:

    1. Remove the left scoop cover, per the recommended procedure.
    2. The Flasher Unit now can be accessed through the access hole.
    3. Remove the Flasher Unit completely.
    4. The recommended Flasher Unit will require modification, mainly removing a resistor from PCB to ensure correct operation. Please refer to the notes on the corresponding image for details.

    5. Once the modification has been completed. Install the cover back onto the unit and then onto the motorcycle.
    6. Remove all the lens on the turn signal and then bulbs. Follow by installing the LED Bulbs into their corresponding locations.
    7. Re-install all the lens and motor happy down the highway...


    After modifying the flasher unit. Do not use 2 or more incandescent light bulbs, as this will cause the flasher unit to be damaged. The flasher unit will no longer function afterwards. I found this out the hard way.

    As I mentioned in one of my earlier post regarding the modified Flasher unit described in post #29 regarding damaging the unit. Well, I did not find this out until I saw a cloud of smoke coming out from the unit. As a result, I had to come up with a different solution.

    Here's what I can up with. I decided to made an adapter to use an Off-The-Shelf (OTS) Flasher Unit rate for use with LED to replace the OEM Unit for use with LED Turn Signals. The flasher unit that I choose to use was available at a popular automotive parts supply chain (Pep Boys) in my area. Check out my Build Procedure Album for this adapter.
