Finally getting around to posting this let me know any ideas so I can get this fixed please.

If I turn my right turn signal on, it will stay permanently on (on the display, on rear, on side turnsignal) just one solid yellow on.

If I just turn it off by pushing the button and turn it back on same thing (tried numerous times over and over)

If I switch to the left blinker instead of turning off by pushing the button and then switch back to right I got a 50/50 shot of it actually working. And it will continue to work for maybe 2-3 more cycles of using it then im back to switching left then back right etc. So during a ride I may have to do this numerous times.

The other twist is when it does work it blinks at a differnt rate then my left side (faster).

hotbodies front turnsignals, clear alternatives fender elim.

Thanks guys.

Recheck the wiring and make sure nothing is rubbing up on wires that it shouldn't be.

He needs resistors or a flasher made for leds. It also makes a difference if the bike is running because of the difference in voltage(12.6-14.4).

Yep, you need resistors. If you look closely they are blinking very rapidly.

I have (had) ebay mirrors with turn signals built it, some cheapo led flushmounts, and the SDE customs tail light which is a integrated solid state tail light.

It got cold out one day and my blinkers would stay solid unless I gave the engine a little rev...probably related to the stator providing a little current spike/surge.

Even with resistors my blinkers are hyper - but I like that better - IMO more visible to cagers and other riders.

I would just go with a new flasher relay. It is like 20.00 and you just take out old flasher plug in new one and everything works perfectly. Very Simple and much easier than wiring up resistors IMO.

You need a resistor for each signal (left side and right side). I thought when installing my hotbodies that I would only need one resistor for the both sides but after testing the signals and them working to riding the bike and only one side flashing and the other side staying on I put in the other resistor I had so that there is one for the left signals and one for the right signals. No problems since.

Ok let me clarify about the resistor and the fast blinking, this does not bother me I dont care about slowing down the speed of the flash so there are no resistors currently in there.

I have not checked the wiring yet to ensure nothing is touching or condition of relays so i guess thats my next step. I will get into that this weekend and update. However this is a new issue meaning my lights use to work fine (blinking fast but working) and now all of a sudden this happens, which is why I am confused perhaps somthing went bad? But if thats the case then it wouldnt "fix itself" after switching to left a few times then back to right..... bizare

Thanks for comments.
