Additional set of LED blinkers

Hi all,
I have a 2013 versys 650L and I'm trying to setup an extra pair of lights; LED blinkers parallel to the OEM filament blinkers that exists. But the LED lights doesn't light up.
Is there a way to do this keeping the OEM bulbs? Please see the attached diagram.
Also I tried replacing the original flasher relay with a LED flasher relay but didn't work for the LEDs.

Can you please help.

Thanks.

Welcome From Canada

to the forum , please read;http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ber-intro.html
I have both led flasher and led signal lights , just like what you are trying to do. I will edit my post later and include photos.
First unless you spliced into the wiring going directly to the signal lights positive, your circuit won't work. As to a flasher I bought 2 styles, both less than $5, both 3 wire, ground, positive supply and signal, which actually goes to the signal light switch emergency flasher switch on the bars. I used a relay for each direction as I have led running lights as well and wanted the side with the flashing signal light to alternate the running light on that side, so I needed a normally closed contact and a normally open contact for each direction.

In this photo the right hand signal is on and the yellow led on the Barkbuster is on


here is the same side showing during the off cycle of the right hand turn


here is the running lights after cancelling the signal



FYI I have a Compu Fire regulator with the headlight relay circuit triggered off the brake light, so even though the bike is running here, the headlight is off, until a momentary brake occurs, then it latches on and remains on.

And finally my latest set up with the Denali running lights at high beam, and low beam on ( low beam is a led, which I am not happy with due to poor beam spread)

Led have to be wired correctly positive to positive negative to negative. They will not light if hooked up backwards. Try to reverse your wires and see if it works

Hello from Ozzy

Hi all,
I'm new to the 650cc range and glad I entered to it with my 2013 Kawasaki Versys 650L.
Been riding on weekends and put some 10000kms on ODO since I bought it.

Thanks.

Nice bike. Welcome to the Versys and Gen 2 family. Take a look at my garage photos and see what I've done with LED signals.
