Turn Signal Relay for LED's 2016 DSR
« on: January 20, 2018, 09:04:53 AM »

I'm looking into replacing my incandescent bulbs to LED's so need info in order to procure the proper LED compliant relay. 
It appears that that the relay is under the faux tank.
I didn't feel like tearing it all apart to get the info so I'm hoping someone knows the spec's.

I found two different units on superbrightleds.com

https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/flashers-load-resistors/cf13gl-02-led-bulb-electronic-flasher/782/836/

And

https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/flashers-load-resistors/fl3-red-led-bulb-electronic-flasher/780/834/



Bonus points for led replacement recommendations.

Anyone try these?

My local O'Reily auto parts has a whole variety of led flashers, cheap. When you're ready to swap it, just bring the stock one to O'Reily or Pep Boys or Canadian Tire or what have you and match it up.

For led advice, first check the Unofficial Manual. A big white tower should work well in the tail light (1157?) [Edit: I understand some or all Zeros come with an LED taillight. Mine looks like an aftermarket 1157 plug in.] Be careful with the turn signals because they are not standard 1156s in all the Zeros. Check the side pins, and notice the height - regular size 1156 glass is too tall. Or you could use those really nice (but not so cheap) ones from Weiser. I have some like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/US-2x-6V-1156-ba15s-12-SMD-LED-Amber-Car-Bulb-Light-Brake-Turn-Tail-Reverse-Lamp-/192378692699?hash=item2ccaa9e45b
Not bad, very cheap.

Thanks Clay,
I hadn't considered sourcing the relay local.


I'm putting togeather an order from superbrightleds.com & wanted to include a flasher with that order but rather then tearing the bike down twice (daily commuter) I will pick one up locally if I don't get a response from this posting. 

The bulbs on the 16 DSR are 5009's and I've had good luck with superbrightleds.com so will stick with their offerings unless I get a better suggestion.

The taillight is OEM LED.
I want to change the turn bulbs to LED not to conserve power but primarily to eliminate the incandescent lag as I will be adding aux LED's & want symmetry/consistency.
Plus I'm HOPEing for greater lumens.

Reference: https://zeromanual.com/index.php/Unofficial_Service_Manual#Turn_Signal_Flasher

Prior to my posting for help, I actually managed to find this but when I googled the mentioned relay I struck out.

This I did not find (as I was researching signal relays, not bulbs).
It contained the info I needed, thank you.

Yes I’ve seen these but at $150 +- a set I’m looking for alternatives.

I've had the relay changed when they installed my charge tank, don't remember what type it is but it's a standard three connector thingy. Ordered one from aliexpress even, come to think of it...

Try the local auto parts store (Pep Boys,  O'Reilly, AutoZone, etc). Look for an LED flasher (not a relay, though it looks like one). My O'Reily had a whole variety, different pin configurations and different loads.
