Hope i did not waste $15 bucks on those resistor wires.
TST industries makes an OEM flasher for LEDs. Plugs right in, and no dicking around with resistors.

What is the red switch on your left hand side grip for?

Thanks, i should've just went that route

The Resistor wires i got do work now, but i need to put BOTH wires to one side for it to work properly, as i guess they do not offer much resistance, but if you connect them together, then it works fine, so ill be needing another set, 4 wires and all... will probably just grab that relay sooner or later, as that is the proper way to do this LED set up imho.

Turn signal hyper flash fix.

I ordered one of these DRC IC relays from Wheeling for my turn signal problem.

https://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/...rc-ic-relay/51

The thing is I installed some Buell turn signals on my 08 DRZ. They were still incandescent bulbs but I guess they had a lower wattage than the turn signal relay liked so they had hyper flash.

The turn signals were an homage to the Buell I used to own, plus they had a smaller profile, DOT approved, with smoked lenses, looked good with the Edge 2 light.

Guess I better take it easy out there, finding exact replacements maybe near impossible now.

I also installed the Zeta "turn signal" hand guards but I use those as running lights.

Thanks for all the pics

I have a 2000 that I bought used, just curios if it was still stock would the castings from the bottom, cylinder, and head match in patina? My do not so is it safe to say parts have been replaced?

Yep.

It lives!!! Haven't ridden it yet but it does run and no funny sounds are emanating from it. I just need to get it reassembled and go for a ride now.

LED bulbs for UFO turn signals

So while I was at the parts store getting some oil I found these LED's to replace the crappy bulbs in my UFO fender, still not the perfect solution but better than they were by a long shot. I will try to get some video tonight as well.



Stock bulb

LED replacement

DRZ mods

150ron now you did it. You made me drag out the backup hard drive with all the DRZ stuff on it.

Buell turn signals with Edge2 tail light.


Since we still had the behemoth tags in 08 I had to extend the mounting points.
Backing is a truck mud flap. You can heat it with a heat gun and bend it. Use a nice straight edge and wait for it to cool.
