Do you mean load equalizer? They sell them at the auto parts store.

I have seen in videos of the shadow 750 its just one thing you unplug and plug a new one in and its done. i think the load equalizers need to be wired in to each line. so x4 load equalizers right?

If your bike uses a conventional flasher unit then you'd want a "variable load" flasher. Also available at the auto parts.

If your bike has a self canceling unit, you might only need two loads.

Why not consult the utube video(s)?
Where are you sourcing the LEDs? They should offer what you need

I did a little write up for my ACE 750 on converting a 3 wire system to 2 wire a while back. In that I mention that you can use specifically a Tridon Electronic Flasher EP-35 available at most auto parts stores. Just be sure which ever one you use says it's for "LED 2-4 lamps." Did the same on my VLX.
