Indicators, Turn Signals

If you're American or own a Harley-Davidson you might call them turn signals, but many know them as indicators, flashers or blinkers. Usually a choice between traditional filament bulbs or LEDs which have a brighter, more intense light. If fitting LED indicators for the first time you will need to fit in-line resistors or a relay to avoid them flashing too quickly. This is because LED bulbs draw less power than traditional ones, fooling your bike into believing that a bulb has blown. Lights flash rapidly to “alert” you to this. Relays are model specific depending on how many wires the original lighting relay has, usually 2 or 4 for Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki and up to 7 wires on selected Suzuki motorbikes – just have a quick look at your existing relay before you order. You will only need to change the lighting relay once, but will need a separate in-line resistor for each indicator if you choose to go down this route.

Turn signals/indicators are available in many shapes and sizes – cateye, arrow, gothic cross and many more. For some the smaller the better, in which case you really need LED turn signals to give out sufficient brightness to still be seen. Most LED indicators use a white lens combined with amber LEDs, whereas traditional turn signals have an amber lens with clear bulb.
