I have just switched over to the Joker Machine controls, mirrors and mini LED indicators (marker lights).

I removed the original mirrors with LED in them to go to the JM ones, i spliced the wires together (meaning twisted together) and heat shrunk to cover the connections, (HD did not have any of the silver connectors for inside the plug, 3 weeks on back order)

I have got them working but notice one side after about 4 flashes it tends to flash faster.
The other side has same flash rate throughout use.

Can anyone advise what this could be?

Bad connection?
Smaller LED compared to original in mirrors?
Wire size difference from Joker Machine to original section of mirror wire that plugs in?


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Does the back blinker speed match front on fast blinking side? Do they match, front right rear right? did u double check that polarity correct on both sides? Try disconnect normal side and see if fast slows down.

Yes the back indicator speeds up with the front one.

As for the rest im not sure what you are on about lol

Polarity well i have nothing to test that?

Disconnect the normal side? its an intermittent thing its starts off normal flash rate and speeds up

Not yet i need to give bike a good wash and will do some good shots with all the mods.

Indicators seem to be flashing right now
Its just the alarm light stays on riding now?

Ill wait till connectors are here then ill worry about it :)
