LED TURN SIGNALS

So I put on Watson LED turn signals from my 2010 to 2015 and they won't work properly . I went to BMW dealer for to "wake" them up and after hooking up to computer they still won't blink properly . BMW dealer suggested the resistance is off, but they don't know what kind of resistance BMW OEM LED take ( manufacturer won't disclose ).
Help?!?

What are they doing? Staying on or flashing fast? Maybe try wiring a 6 ohm load resistor in line with the positive side.

Ping Roger at Watsen Designs. They have amazing customer service and I am sure he will help you fix the issue. Best of luck!


Cheers,

Right side works good, left side comes in for few boings and then comes off.
I called Watsen they do not make LED turn signals for 2015+. He could not suggest anything

Hey Brother,
When is the last time you spoke to them? I only ask because mine should be enroute later this week for my 2016. The issue they had is that the blinker hole in the 2015/16 models is slightly different than the previous, so they had to engineer a new mold. I will submit pics when I receive and install mine. Talk to you soon!

Cheers,
Nak

I don't see anything on their website for S1000RR or BMW specific signals.

'12 BMW K1600GT (gone but not forgotten)
'13 BMW S1000RR (for the track, also gone - I killed it)
'14 Kawasaki KLR650 (for the TAT)
'16 R1200GS (for the epic adventure)
'16 KTM Super Duke 1290R (for my inner hooligan)

You sure you're not talking about Gregg's Customs?
