I have orderd some LED signal lights for the rear. I know that i will need to add some resistors but do not know what size. The bulbs are 21watts. any info will help.

being an electrician I've calculated it to be 6.857 ohms. Does this sound rite. I have never tryed this before.

Do you have any pictures of the lights that you ordered??
I am curious to see what they look like..

If you replace the front and rear signals with LED's you usually do not have to add resistors. I would go that route. The resistors are known to get hot. I am looking for front and rear, haven't found any I like yet. What did you order??

I definitely want to see this. LED signals look amazing and they're easier to see during daylight. Can't wait to see what these look like.

There is 2 ways to go.

The stock signal flasher is load dependent meaning that if you install LED's that draw less current the flasher will flash fast or not at all.

To over come this you can add a load resistor to compensate for the loss in resistance

or

replace the signal flasher to one that is not load dependent and save energy in the process.

I have not seen a wire diagram or even a parts breakdown fiche yet for the furry so I have no idea what style it has but my guess is they would be using one of the 9 pin ones like the newer vtx's

just ordered the resistors. I could not find any thing that would work for sure. except for the resistors.
