i know that, and you know that, but the bike thinks it is. LED's pll a much smaller load than the bulbs do. which is why you need to wire a 10 ohm 55 watt resistor in parallel on each side, to increase the load. that way it's alot closer to what the stock bulbs would pull.
if i'm building my own LED cluster, i'll usually wire in a 100 ohm resistor in series per 3 LED's. then run parrallel series of 3 LED's up to a total of 9 per cluster, then more clusters of 9 if i need more light. but generally speaking, most aftermarket LED signals have a built in load, it just doesn't seem to be enough for our bikes.
