Yes. Is the relay to fix the rate of the flashing if you change out incandescent to LED?

Hi mate have you got any pics of the led units you replaced the bulbs with at all ? Also when i was doing my plugs the other day i disconected the two drain/vacume hoses ( either side ) and disconected the little elec conector on the left side and was able to lift the tank nearly 300mm as i had to get in at the high pressure fuel pipe . I figur it would be a bit easier to work in2 inches rather than 3 to get that sticky little relay off ,  good post though i have been thinking of looking into led indictors myself so much brighter than bulbs .

Hi mate i have been looking at led bulbs on ebay here some are claiming that they dont hyer flash something to do with built in resisitors (all to technical for me) the only relay i can find is the one you posted and they are in america and the freight would be horrendus to get it to aus but ill keep searching led are the way to go for all lighting low power bright as i just mounted a stoplight in my top box using pre wired red leds makes a huge difference .

Looks like itís got a led relay Or resistor  built in . Donít know if you need 4 or just 1. Also have no idea how much they are. Iíd go with the single replacement relay takes a few minutes to install and is cheap.

Hi mate if i could get the relay here in aus i would go that way but the cost of it when adjusted to currency i can get 4 of these and also i would have to pay freight on top

I think they will work fine, keep us posted on how it goes . I dont think there should be any issues with the honda wiring. Once you fit them just make sure they dont overheat . Best of luck mate. :821:
