Front Blinker Replacement!

Hey guys, Picked up a 2019 Rebel 500 recently just for fun and bombing around on, def a fun bike, starting to do some mods to it, added some X-Arc led blinkers from high tech speed, really cleaned up the front of the bike and they are extremely bright, heres a picture of stock vs how I setup the new ones.

Two things.

1. The signals being on the inside will make them much less visable no matter how bright they are. They are now competing with the headlight not to mention others will have a much harder time telling which way you are actually turning. I mean they are legit 3 inches apart.
2. You installed them on the bottom of the fork. Did you check if they are past the distance the forks travel?

Oh yeah forks don't even come close to touching them, they are close but oh well.. If I get pulled over maybe I will move them. Stock headlight is trash when these are blinking they are easily visible over the headlight. Well see when I replace to stock headlight bulb with an LED light.

What relay did you grab?

Grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.

I got the custom LED ones, but currently they function fine without the added relay, I still currently have the stock signals on the rear, I will replace the relay when I change the rears so all signals are LED, that's usually when I see a problem with the blinker.

Does your flasher indicator on the speedometer stay on? I recently swapped my front and rear signals. The Custom LED relay solved the hyper flash, but the indicator remains on constantly. Also when I'm signaling one side the opposite side pulses a bit.

No. Just LED bullet style blinkers https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F332660920387 . Thinking they might just be kinda cheap and that's my problem.
