LED turn signals - relay

Gentlemen,

I need a confirmation, from someone that has / had access to the turn relay signal (I am on a business trip, away form my Versys )

Is it a 2 wires / pin piece similar to this?

When I have purchased my bike it had the turn signals changed already to LEDs (this model) but the blinking speed is just amazing (2 times per second I'd say). I searched the forum and found that a good solution would be to have the relay changed but I'm not sure if this one would be compatible ...

so ...
and many thanks in advance.

You can add resistors to the line for each blinker (did that on my truck) or you can get a solid state flasher relay

It is a 2 wire device like the one in your link. I have one on my bike, got it from "Custom LED". It slows down the flashing to normal rate.

@ Mt. Versuvius > thanks for the fast reply. Is that (white) plug useful in any way, does it match the plug on the bike's electric wiring? I'm referring to the one I posted a link in the first post.

I'm asking because it would be easier for me to purchase something like this. In the end, I believe that the two items do the same thing - I'd go for the one which requires minimum intervention on the electric circuitry ...

I want to remind you that I did not open (yet) any covers from my Versys (the cowling buzz is one of the issues I have to solve, and together with it, this light-speed blinking).

I think you're going to find it's plug and play with the device in your first post. Looks like it fits a wide array of Japanese bikes. You'll just have to fab a little metal clip to hang it on the hanger beneath the fairing panel. I cut a small piece of galvanized sheet metal, used electrical tape to fasten it to the device and then bent it over so it looks like a money clip. (The OEM device has a built in clip.) Easy peasy, you'll see.

solved

gents, problem solved.

The relay from Louis worked like a charm. I had to adjust the couplings (I guess this is how they're called) and the attachment is a bit different from the original relay but it all worked out in the end.

At least I have a normal blinking speed now ...

I can post some pictures if anyone is interested.

correction

OK,

I agree. I restate my support with pictures and electric & mechanical advice, if needed / requested by someone.
