Thanks, so that means that I need two of them to make that work for L/R flashers? Also can I disconnect the panel light and connect one end directly with the L and the other end to the ground?

In any case I ordered a two pin flasher that works with LED, so waiting to receive to test

@Duckster is right. I did run a grounding wire into those original front turn-signals to get proper function from the LEDS I added in there. Sorry it was some time ago, I simply forgot to mention it. @haf I sure will. The relay/flasher http://bit.ly/LEDMotorcycleFlasher I hope you all can read my quickly hand drawn diagram It is not prepared with diligence that @kryton showed with the original carefully prepared post. I hope he doesnt think I'm taking over his post (even though I almost have) my sincerest apologies.

Thank you, with the diagram makes sense now, I have already ordered the same flasher.. I will check with the diodes and let you know

@StarBaseONE2 all good, the more knowledge shared the better. @haf make one change at a time so you can test/troubleshoot each step. remove the turn signal indicator bulb and test your turn signals with the new flasher. THEN play with the diodes.

Great write up!! I just finished installing new bobber LEDs signals on my sons bike for and guess what? No blink! I was stumped so I came in to ask the question and viola, here it is! Do you suppose that relay will fix the issue with a whole new fixture? I am going to order it and see. I also have solved the whole LED Headlight replacement dilemma I was having a couple weeks ago! I ordered bulb and housing for a HD Sportster.

The electronic relay fixes the issue with LEDs not pulling enough amps through the OEM relay to trigger it to cycle (no flash).
This 3-prong solution for rewiring the panel indicator light fixes the 4-way-flash issue that the indicator light causes, or you can use diodes to fix the 4-way-flash issue, or just pull the indicator bulb.
