    Turn Signal Problem HELP PLEASE

    Ok so first post so bare with me...... I have a 2001 HD Sporty 883 and I ordered some turn signals for it. I got the blinkers in and was excited to get them on, so I wired them up in the front, whent thru my checks to make sure everything works and I was good to go. Thenn I put the back on and before i soldered the wires i checked everything out and when I hit the button, the turn signales lit up but didnt blink. so after some cursing and throwing some wrenches i tried putting the stock blinkers back on in the rear and it blinks again. So I left the stock ones on the back and went for a ride. When I started the bike and took off down the street I put the blinker on and it came on but didnt blink. Im stumped. SO to sum it up, I have aftermarket NON led lights in the front, stock lights in the rear and when the bike is not started the blinkers work but when I start the bike and hit the button the blinker comes on but doesnt flash. HELP PLEASE.

    Are the new blinkers LED or regular bulb type ?? LEDs do not draw enough power to activate some flashers in bikes. If the stock flasher is just a 2 or 3 pin flasher you can replace it with an electronic flasher from an auto parts store and it will work. They are cheap and will actually work with little or no load. If that fails then recheck your wiring and connections for an oops.
