LED add on question

Postby coldcanuk » Sat Mar 26, 2016 10:22 am



I am looking to add both LED bulbs and LED strip lights to my 1990 GW Aspencade. I have read up on many articles and am still confused. Do I need to use a load Resistor for each set of lights? (eg. left saddlebag and right saddlebag.) Does this include installing a resistor for brake lights or daytime running lights?

From what I can read, I need to install a resistor for each signal light to stop Hyper flash. Is there a way to use 1 resistor per set of signal lights?

If you install LED's for your signals then they would hyper flash and you would either need a load resister or change the flasher relays. All other bulbs would work as normal and you could replace them with no worries.
