have just transfered my oxford mercury indicators across from my old bike on there they flashed at the normal rate with all the resisters attached now on the GSXS1000 they flash really fast any thoughts?
The resistors aren't low enough resistance to draw the correct amount of current for the stock flasher relay. You will need to fit lower resistance resistors, or ditch the resistors and replace the relay (much better option IMO). I had exactly the same problem with Oxford LED indicators on my old Bandit.
Resistors: Ideally you want 6 ohm 50 watt resistors (at 12v they will be drawing 2 amps and running at 72 watts) but because they aren't on constantly, you should be able to use 6.8 ohm 25 watt resistors as they are smaller (running at a 50% duty cycle)
