LED Resistors

This guide has been written to help you install the CLICKnRIDE® LED Resistor on your Motorcycle if your bike is pre-wired for globed lights.

LED turn signals have a very low current draw so when they are used on a motorbike set up for incandescent globes they may flash faster than usual, as if there was a blown bulb, or not flash at all (if there’s not enough ‘resistance’ to trigger the flasher relay). We have designed our CLICKnRIDE® LED Resistors to correct this problem and bring the flash rate back to approximately 60-90 FPM (Flashes Per Minute)

Add a CLICKnRIDE® LED Resistor to each LED turn signal connected to the motorcycle signal circuit until there’s enough ‘load’ to trigger your flasher relay.

NOTE: On some bikes, you may not need the Resistor at all if you keep the globed lights on the front and fit CLICKnRIDE® LED turn signals on the rear.


Locate the LED turn signal wires. The CLICKnRIDE® LED Resistor should be installed with the red cable to the + Positive signal wire, and the black cable to the – Negative signal wire.  LED’s are polarity dependant and each motorcycle manufacturer can have a slightly different set up. If you’ve added resistors to each LED Light and your turn signals still don’t work, try swapping the resistor’s red and black cables.

Select a location for the CLICKnRIDE® LED Resistors (Note: It will get hot when the signal is flashing so avoid mounting on the fairing or other parts that may get damaged from heat). Wires may be shortened if desired.

If your current setup has 3 wires you would omit the Running light wire and only use the + and – cables.
