LED turn signals

I'm going LED on my turn signals. Does any know if the CAN bus cares? Do I need ballast resistors or lower power relays? If so, I would prefer the relays over the resistors (uses less power, easy wiring), Please advise and thanx in advance...

Yes, the canbus will care and without the proper resistance, your flashers will blink quite fast. You can use either option, but it is usually simpler if you use the relay method with the proper pin layout. This place has the flasher relays that work with both LED and incandescent lights simultaneously, e.g. LED front and ol'fashion rear:

Keep us posted as how it all goes please.

Thanx for explaining and pointing me. I'm also looking to go LED in the rear and would prefer the relay. Why generate the extra amps just to turn them into heat...

The Ducati LED hand guard instructions indicated that the tiny inline resistor may, or may not, be necessary. To simplify the installation, I added the resistors, not wanting to deal with the wiring any more than necessary.

OK, if I don't find the relays I'm looking for, resistors go in, thanx...
