Led Relay

I installed LED turn signals and now the bike blinks as if one of the lights are broken. So i searched Google and found that the Turn signal relay would need to be changed to one that supports LED lights.

I purchased a Lockheart Phillips 122-7500 LED Turn sigal relay. (http://www.motosport.com/street/prod...Y=&cat0=METRIC) It comes with am OEM clip so no wire splicing is necessary, but when looking under neath my seat, there are no clips that look even remotely close to what this one has.

Does anybody know how to install this thing?

There's a great set of photos explaining the process here: http://vstrom.info/faq/index.php?action=artikel&cat=5&id=76&artlang=en

I did this mod last week, it was pretty easy. I put my relay in a slightly different place though:




While I was in there I spliced an extra wire into the lead that powers the relay, and ran it back to the underseat area to be the switch lead for the relay for my fuse block.

Yep, that's it. Balázs beat me to it.
Note that if your bike is an ABS wee, you'll have to mount the relay somewhere other than where it it shown in the photo I posted above.

I cable tied my LED relay to the front of the stock relay case.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Connected Relay but it really dims my LED now. The incandescent is bright but the leds on the rear only have 3 leds lit. Is there something I am missing?
