hey kids!

after having a lady (using the term very loosely) speed around me from behind as i was turning left into my driveway, i decided it was time for some "attention-getter" brake lights & turn signals.....

i purchased the above skene setup & had planned to install it yesterday on my '18 dl1000 (oem led brake lights & bulb turn signals), but my mechanic friend wondered if a resistor might be necessary.
- i don't think so - or at least nothing showed up on the skene instructions, website, or various searches (including here) that was so clearly stated that this electrical infant recognized.

so, is a resistor required/recommended for proper functioning of this skene unit?

thanks in advance.

cheers & happy social distancing....

My guess would be no resistor needed if the factory used led lights.
The purpose of the resistor is to add load to the circuit, which is necessary for the signals to flash at a normal rate if the bike was originally equipped with incandescent bulbs and you had installed led bulbs. Since your bike had factory leds, It would be a safe bet that the Flasher unit will work just fine
Follow the instructions with the kit and ride safe
