Question LED turn signals

Hey guys, I just replaced my turn signals with the bullet shape LED ones. Got them tucked in on the back and mounted under the headlight up front, with a couple of "L" brackets. Everything is hooked up and working, but I noticed the signal indicators on the dash are dimly lit and they blink fast. My question is, do I need a load ballast, or just a newer electronic relay to get the blinking back to normal.

Hi guys
When I fitted leds all round the Dragstar I just changed the flasher unit to a led compatible low output replacement.
Brought a Yamaha unit from ebay, straight swap and all sorted.
They did do units for other makes.
Ride safe

I swapped the OEM relay for this:

Honda Kawasaki Yamaha LED Indicator RELAY WRELED03 | eBay

Saves faffing around with resistors & heatshrink etc

Take care.

The blinking fast is due to an imbalanced load between the front LEDs and the rear incandescent bulbs. A load balancer would solve the blinking issue, as would a replacement blinker relay:
Plug an play flasher for LED signals...

The slighly lit indicators ... I have that on my speedometer, as well, and I have the Kisan Tech SM-3 turn-signal cancellation (load equalizer, etc.) module on my bike. Just ignore that - it's of no harm.

StPete, Thanks Bro, I will order one today. And I wasn't sure about the indicators being lit dimly, didn't think it was gonna hurt anything. So yeah I'm just gonna let it go as is. But will get the relay. Thanks.
