Upgrade Turn Signals to LED - Electronic Flasher

Can you tell from these pictures if this 2 prong flasher will work? What the worst case if you can't and I just go ahead and try it?

:) If the prongs line up try it you won't blow anything up or nothing . It will either work the lights real fast or not at all or might come on and don't blink. It won't burn anything up . I have done it before myself can't remember what it did but nothing tragic or I would have remembered that :lol:

If you just connect and use it, the lamps will flash or just light. If they flashing too fast (if you use LED turn signals), you have to add a resistor to reach the specified load (usually 42W). I think this flasher can be operates from low amps to the max 25A.

That's an electronic flasher, you should be able to just plug it in, and your signals will flash correctly. It may be polarity sensitive, so if it doesn't work, try reversing the wires. But that's exactly what you need to flash your LEDs.

Thanks all. I'll give it a shot first rainy day when I'm tinkering instead of riding.
