Tail light prob on 87 GL1200

Postby alwims » Mon Dec 15, 2014 1:55 pm



I put LED tail lights on my Outrigger Trike fenders and also switched almost all the lights, tail, stop and turn to LED. I also switched the flasher to an electronic one so the turn signals would work. The only lights that are not LED yet are the front turn signals and the license plate light. The dash lights are still standard and not LED. Here is my problem, The Taillight warning light on the dash is on and won't go out. Do I need some kind of resistor or something in the system for this to work?

That's normal when putting LEDs in. Have a look at this thread: Warning light for tail light stays on

Not the answer I was looking for. :) But it'll have to do. Thanks.
