Picked me up some blinker at chop gets this weekend for my vstar bobber project but the are one wire and stock blinkers have 2 wires. Does anyone know if I can make this work?

Yes, they will work, The new ones just do not work as running lights as the originals did. meaning that you hook the single wire to the flasher lead, and the second wire (the ones that would keep the flashers on as running lights) should be capped off, so as not to arch and blow fuses

they're self grounding, meaning when you fasten them into the metal, they ground them self without needing a wire.

Self grounding indeed. Fastened the up to the fender and started blinking away. Thanks!

Your left arm requires a ground?

:D


Kidding, kidding. As was stated, new blinkers are self grounding. I always like to put an eye terminal on the unused ground, and connect it to the bolt that holds the light. Totally not necessary, though.
