Lookin good man....what did you do, just drill out the pegs, and insert single LEDs and tapped into the blinkers?

Re: My homemade peg blinkers!

I think you need some resistors or a different flasher unit to cope with the LEDs.

Looks good though

Re: My homemade peg blinkers!

looks good . too bad the pipe will get in the way of the other sides' visibility.

Re: My homemade peg blinkers!

yeah,, will be going back to the under belly pipe so will have a better view then......for the 5 led's per side I added a 100ohm resistor to each positive line....then tied in with my existing blinkers

Re: My homemade peg blinkers!

Correct just a regular automotive electronic relay will do as the stock relay is a thermal relay in turn causes the fast blinking.

+1. I would go with a different flasher rather than resistors.

Re: My homemade peg blinkers!

you need the resistor to keep the led from blowing! and yup new relay is comming

If you use the wrong LED then sure.

For the 04-07 this company has been making those LED pegs for a couple of years:

Re: My homemade peg blinkers!

nice setup im sure you will see alot of that coming up on bikes now that youve done it maybe you should try in patent it.

Correct me if I am wrong, but you and lanbrown appear to be talking about 2 different functions for the resistor.

lanbrown is talking about using a resistor to fool the flasher relay to go the right speed. This usually needs to be pretty low resistance, because it has to draw a good bit of current to make the flasher work right. And it usually needs to be in parallel with the LEDs, because it has to draw a lot of current through it.

Your 100 ohm resistor was in series with the LEDs right? That was to set the current to the LEDs. Did you wire all 5 LEDs in series? What was the forward voltage drop across each? The more you have in series, and smaller resistor you use, the larger the current fluctuation will be, when the battery voltage changes.

The LEDs look good. Which LEDs did you use?
