    Turn signals flashing too fast

    hey hey gang,

    ima total newbie to the world of bikes so be nice, but to cut a long story short - i recently had to replace my rear turn signals on my 2007 GN250 as one of them had perished in the sun and did not want to stay pointing toward the rear.

    i got some turn signals off trademe for like $20 and installed them.. they worked at the correct speed when the bike is off (i was very proud of myself)

    shortly after i went for a ride and realized that they were going at double the speed.

    what do i need to do to get them going the right speed again?

    The speed of the flasher is influenced by the resistance in the bulbs.

    You probably got a slow flash at stopped because the voltage was a bit low

    You can either

    a: ignore it

    or

    b: change the bulbs to higher wattage (check what you had before).

    Because on one replacement bulb, the indicators on my rat bike flash different speeds left and right. I've taken option A

    tried the old bulbs and you were correct, wattage was too low on new ones

    thanks for the help
