    What's needed to upgrade to led indicators
    Apparently I'll need to upgrade the flashing relay to led but I was told that I'll need a pair of resistors.
    Is it correct
    Thanks and have a good ride

    I have Oxford LEDs on mine.  No need to change the relay (on my 2013 Sport) and they come with resistors.  I only needed to use one resistor block though - when fitted at both ends they would only flash once and then stop.  I removed the front one as itís easier to tuck the block away at the back behind the tail light, rather than dangling inside the front fairing panel.

    Make life easy when fitting by getting a pack of bullet connectors and a crimping tool.

    It's one or the other, not both. If you retain the old flasher that relies on the incandescent load to determine the flash rate, then when you reduce the wattage with LED's, you have to add a parallel load across at least one indicator on each side. If you replace it with an electronic flasher, the flasher determines the rate, so no resistors needed.
