LED Blinkers

So when I first got bike I swapped blinkers to flush LEDs. But lately I'm having trouble getting them to blink. Is it some kind of stress on the wiring setup, or do I need to add something?

Mine does the same thing, but only when it's cold out (under 50). You might need a new flasher relay.

Try cleaning your switch.

Which switch? The actual hand switch or some type of modulator?

See if it makes a difference if you turn on the turn sig then push up on the switch (on the handlebar). Yeah they hate the cold. Under 20* you always gotta push up.

The hand switch on your left grip. They get a little corrosion in the switch after some time and need a good cleaning and lubrication with dielectric grease.

Ok I'll try the cleaning. It's 80 degrees here so I doubt it's the cold haha
I was thinking maybe it didn't like the LEDs, but it wasn't a problem when I first installed em. AND the right side usually takes a few more tries for it to start flashing. Weird

Common problem. Nothing big.

If you have different time for different sides, then it's likely you have corrosion in the blinker connections as well as the switch... Have a look at all the connectors... And once you are done cleaning them, give them all a dab of di-electric grease to seal out moisture...
