    Question about Blinkers

    Hi Folks,

    I want to replace my front blinkers. So i got some new blinkers from Rizoma. My problem lies with the wires. There are 3 wires coming from the bike and 2 wires on the blinkers. So before i cut the wires on my brand new bikes blinkers which operate perfectly fine only changing it to make the bike look cooler.....


    has anyone been here before?

    thanks in advance and take care everyone

    Mickey

    My advise is: Do not cut any wires!

    Use adapter cables instead.

    I guess the three wires are because they are used as running lights and turn signals, unlike our UK bikes which are only used as turn signals. (two wires)

    Depending on how they work (dual filament bulb maybe?) you may have a bit of a challenge getting LED indicators to work properly.

    One wire is for the running lights so it HOT all the time, just dont use this one and you will be fine. Its easy to find out which one using a multimeter. I have a set of rizoma track 77 on the rear, just figuring out what to put on the front.
