    LED turn signal problems.

    About two weeks ago I installed an ebay integral tail brake turn signal with a tusk led flasher relay. Today the turn signal indicator bulb quit working. Is this a coincidence? The bike is a 2012 with about 7500 miles on it.

    Howard this question must have got lost in the stack. Was it just coincidence? Did you replace them and everything working now?
    Off topic what rifle case is on your bike, and how is it strapped down?

    Sorry for the late response sp. I think the bulbs burning out was just coincidence. I just installed some cheap led bulbs from amazon that worked in the high beam and neutral indicators, but will not work in the turn signal indicator. The turn signal indicator is working just fine with a regular bulb though. The gun scabbard is the old style Kolpin with the 1/2 inch mounting holes. I welded a !/2 inch nut to the bottom of the cycle rack, which the scabbard is bolted to. the bottom of the scabbard is held back against the passenger peg with a short bungee or tarp strap.

    I don't know. Mine acts just like yours. I have led turn signals and an electronic flasher but had to leave the incandescent bulb in the indicator. For me it wasn't worth figuring out but I'll keep an eye out here if anyone knows.

    Thanks for the reply tirebiter. Maybe someone out there knows the answer, I couldn't figure it out.

    Are you guys running LEDs in all of your bulbs, except the indicator and headlight? Did you buy a kit that included all the LED bulbs or did you just cross-reference each one?

    I replaced my rear tail light and turn signals with an integrated one. installed an led flasher , and replaced the indicator bulbs with leds with the exception of the turn signal indicator. I am still running the stock front turn signals. It seems like I have seen a post that cross referenced all the bulbs on here. I think it may have been posted by Qwerty.
