i could not find turn signal I liked so I made some for my xs400 cafe but I have not been able to get them to flash....it has 3 prong flasher and I have tried every ”made for LED” 3 prong flasher on the market....have also tried adding resistors, have also tried replacing flasher with an orig type and using resistors....nothing is working...they turn on they just don’t flash....any ideas?

I bought an electronic flasher at NAPA that works great on two GL1000 and a CB750F builds.

I have the same flasher as PID but with 100% LED it didn't work. When I had a mix of LED and Incandescents it did. So I hid 2 old signal lights inside my fake tank and left them in the circuit and then all the LED's flash. I had a pure LED unit that worked but if they are for a car not a bike they still need a lot of draw as car LED would pull as much as an incandescant bike signal.

When I was building the Hedgehog I used the flasher from Sparck on 100% LED turns and everything was perfect.
