  • Signal relay at autozone?

    I got the dreaded fast flash from my signals and I’m trying not to order a new relay online. Is there locally that’s not a dealership that I might be able to find one?

    My take on relays. Basically an electric on and off switch. If specs are the same any relay will work. The rub is with the pin or spade connections mounting and body profile. I have changed relays on equipment and made it work. A pal of mine had a Virago and the starter relay failed. I went to John Deer and bought a lawnmower relay and it worked.

    The answer is yes. Be interesting to see how you make out.

      Upgrade to LED lighting on the flashers?

      Any aftermarket flasher will probably delete the self cancelling mode.

        It did on my bike... It took a few rides to remember to shut the signals off after making the turn.

          Been a few years for me. I STILL forget to turn them off.

        just install resistors and the fast flash will go away

          If you have fast flash because you converted to LED's, you can open the existing flashing relay and install
          a .33 ohm 2 watt resistor in place of the factory resistor. You will preserve the self cancelling feature and no more fast flash.

            Is there a tech article, thread, or video on replacing the resistor... asking for a friend

              There is a YouTube titled "v star turn signal relay modification". The v star and R* share the same flashing relay.
