Indicator/ running light help

I wondered if anyone had found any LED running/signal for the font of the SH. I used these on my last SH http://www.chaparral-racing.com/Chap...18DDDE01B2C88D
But this time I wanted to try the LED route. I need flush mount that measures about 3" long and 2-2.5" tall. Same oval shape would be great. Any ideas?

also question about wiring. The right side (sitting on it) has (1) Light Blue, (1) Light Blue with Stripe and (1) Green wire. What is what? I did not pay close enough attention when I disconnected. Thanks.

I don't remember the Light Blue and Light Blue w/ Stripe exactly, but the Green should be ground.

i tried green for ground - then had to guess with the other 2 wires (only 2 possibilities there) and still the blinkers blinked fast. Maybe green is not ground?
Assuming the LP signals currently on the bike share the same wiring as the new ones this should have worked. I think it's red/black/blk with stripe.

Well, you have three possible choices, with three different wires. There's only six total combinations.

IIRC, someone else had this problem with their aftermarket blinker lights from LP. The problem was the resistance...? I think...

I was reffering to the scenario that made the green the ground from the bike and the black the ground from the signal. With that connection made - there are only 2 possibilities.:-D

Could be that it's a different bulb with different resistance. They are both LP signals though. One is only slightly less ugly than the other.

Really leaning more towards some LED markers and signals but i have been unable to find the size/shape that would work for the front. I think I can mod the Hyperlites to fit the tail.

There are a few threads on here regarding LED turn signals...I can't seem to remember that they were called.

green from bike and striped from signal. I tried that and still blinks fast when signal is on.

The design does not do it for me, but they look a lot more unique than the regular LP flushmounts.

But then again, where I'm headed, I won't be needing turn signals.
