Blink speed of Led Turn Indicator

Hi there,

I installed aftermarket LED turn indicator, shapes same as OEM. Once I installed registor, and the blinking speed seems good, however, after ignition, never blinking. So I took out registor. Now the blinking speed seems normal during engine running. But after stopping engine, blinking speed seems faster.

My question is that faster blinking when engine stops, is this normal, even OEM led ?

if the LED turn indicator are OEM you don't install nothing between the LED turn indicatorand the LED turn indicator cables

At least in the USA, the OEM turn signals are not LED - only the brake lights...

I have LED turn signals and when the acc is on but the bike isn’t running mine blink fast. When the bike is running they blink at the normal speed.

I made the same mistake (installed resistors). With the ignition on but bike off, the LED's will hyper blink. However, despite the OEM bulbs not being LED, the LED's will blink at the proper speed without resistors, when the bike is running.

This seems to be because there is no traditional blinker relay, the signals are presumably controlled by the ECU or software.
