Now my turn signal buzzer/clicker doesn't work anymore! Could that be because there isn't enough resistance? Do I need to use a higher ohm load resistor?
I didn't have a chance to figure out how to make the turn signal buzzer/clicker work before it started working nonstop, unless the bike is at idle, even when the turn signal switch is off it's making a buzz or click depending on how fast I'm going! Any suggestions on what is wrong and how to fix it?
I took mine off and got one from a guy here that is a bit louder but works very well.

It can either be plugged into the same spot or spliced into the lights on the rear fender.

It's probably because of having the load resistor connected to the flasher. You shouldn't need that resistor with a LED flasher.
