    Default Signal mod clarification please

    I'm sure it's answered here somewhere but can't find it. I replaced the front bulbs with LED boards and the rears with 1156 leds. I understand the flasher mod to slow the flash rate so here is the question: with the rears having the resistance integrated is the .33 ohm resistor still the answer in the flasher or is that correct for front and rear boards? Here is the link I plan to use to mod the flasher. I don't want to screw this up since WNY is this week and won't have time to order another flasher.

    It's nice to be the same
    But
    It's great to be different!

It's been 30 years since I dealt with resistors and circuit design so I'm a little rusty. Not to mention without Radio Shack parts aren't available here.

    I did the run/turn/brake lights and had to add two resistors, one on each side to fix the fast flashing.

    So if I follow you put resistors inline instead of modding the flasher itself?

    I used two load balancers. I didn't modify at all.

    See the tech article I wrote - https://www.venturerider.org/forum/s...ustom-Dynamics

    The link to the load balancer I used may have changed - https://www.customdynamics.com/unive...ualizer?cat=59

    I wouldn't recommend the "posi-tap" connections. I solder and/or crimp on connectors.

    Thanks Don, at this point I'll probably wait til I get back from WNY to deal with it.
