Default LED's W/ Load Equalizer Issues

So I installed LED rear turn signals with a load equalizer and am having an issue. When the ignition is on and the motor is not running, both the signals work with the normal flash pattern. When I am riding the bike, the left blinker will work sometimes and the right once in a while, but most of the time it does not work at all. When I go to turn the right signal on with the brights on, I can see the bright indicator dim a little bit and it does not dim when I turn on the left signal. WTF is going on? Any suggestions?

Sounds like a loose connection exposed by the vibration of the engine.

Did you connect load equalizer on the positive or ground wire?

Save yourself the headache and get rid of the load equalizers and buy the proper led flasher.

That's what I did a while ago and I'm very happy with it!

There were two wires that connect to the left and right respectively, and a ground that I connected to both grounds on the signals.
