    i have bought some LED indicators they light up but dont flash, the Ducati has no relay and I have been trying resistors , any ideas.

    If there is no relay how do they flash? There has to be something to make them flash else you have to switch them on and off at the handlebar switch? Can't see a resistor doing anything, don't suppose the original indicators have a built in relay do they? Do you have a wiring diagram? I have no idea about Ducati electrics, only Japs, so the only thing I can suggest is don't ride in the rain? :shock:

    Ducati before 2001 use relays but after 2001 the relay is in the computer , I have been told by Ducati forums to wire resitors paralell into the circuit on the indicators.

    It is likely the resistance - try a relay

    I have worked it out put 2 10ohm 5w resistors in parrallel on the circuit on the rear indicators and it works fine.
