    Default Replacing turn signal module with LED flasher/relay??

    Hey guys
    I'm still trying to decide whether to run signals, and started thinking about using mini LED signals. I have a 2003 XLH1200S.

    Does anyone know if I can ditch the stock turn signal module and replace it with something like this?

    I'm kind of thinking this would require a toggle switch that stays on...I have one that you just flick to either side and it returns to the middle - I figured this would work with the stock setup...flick once to turn signals on, flick another to turn them off. Not sure about the LED signals and new flasher.

    Any insight appreciated regarding required toggle switch and requirement to keep the stock signal module?

    thanks

    It would all kind of depend on whether the stock flasher unit is a no-load type. Most automotive type flasher relays only work with the resistance load of a filament type bulb. Anytime you want to switch to LED type flasher bulbs, you need a no-load type relay, like the one you linked to.

    I did this conversion on my '78 CB750 and used the same relay you listed.

    Superbrightleds sells plenty of no-load flashers. To go with their LED bulbs…

    Just to update, I bought that flasher unit from superbrightled's, and got a simple on-off-on switch (the kind that stays on, doesn't flick back to the middle). The flasher unit was about 1/3 the size of stock, and works great. Wired in all the led signals and hid the switch under the seat, turned out really well.
