Hey Guys,

Hoping you can help me understand what’s going on with my V. I installed aftermarket mirrors with built in LED turn signals so I could delete the stock ones as they stick out very far and are fairing destroyers. Just the cheap eBay ones were purchased.

I was expecting hyperflash when installed due to the LEDs, but what I got is a INTERMITENT hyperflash. The turn signals start off normal speed and then speed up after being left on for a few seconds.

Is this normal? Will a new blinker modular fix this issue or cause the blinkers to start of very slowly then jump to normal speed?

Anybody seen this before?

I bought my flasher for $3 from China, adjustable and 3 wire. This is a timed relay that you adjust the flash rate, independent of load. The reason yours does what it does is due to the rear signal bulbs. Most flashers use the current through them to produce a flash rate dependent on current, actually there is a voltage drop across the device which produces a charge and holds the relay open, since there is a current reduction with the led mirrors the on cycle is reduced, once the filament of the rear signal lights heat up, the current drops, adding to the shortened on time. I picked this one due to a better photo https://www.ebay.com/itm/Turn-Signal-Flasher-Blink-Speed-Adjustable-Relay-3-Pin-for-Motorcycle-LED-Light/371408080579?hash=item5679a58ec3:g:IGUAAOSwMmBVxqeS
