led turn sig problems

just installed led signals all around on my 03 600rr. heres the prob: i put the rear one on first and everything worked fine, just had a fast blink rate. put the front leds on(2 wire) and when i turn the signal on it stays on solid and doesnt blink. if you look u can see it is blinking but at such a fast rate its pretty much solid. i wired in a 1ohm resistor on one side with no change, then tried a 50 ohm and still the same. anyone had similar experiences? thanks

I will give an easier solution / set up buy an aftermarket turn signal relay
and no need for the resistor crap

+1 on the relay. I have done it both ways. relay is the way to go. Front being solid. I had the same thing when i did mine but it was two years ago so I cant remember what the problem was. I want to say switch the wires around but I'm not sure.

How did you wire the back ones? (3 wires)

The front leds (2 wires ) you might have used the wrong set of wires
stripped white wire is the running light wire which you should not use
Green is ground , solid color wire is the turn signal wire

i used the correct wire. i made sure of that. i was thinking of putting a pot. in line and slowly adjusting to see what happens. this is and RC circuit, right? the relay may be the best solution, its pretty cheap.

i don't know what an RC Circuit is, but the flash rate is dependent upon system load. increase the load, increase the delay. 46 Watts is what you have to come back to if you add resisters, per side. if you use a replacement relay, then there's no need to worry.
