So... I have an issue. The relay I removed from the bike has BLE on it. Not XLP. The two wire relay 8 bought doesn't have any letters on it, just a red and a black wire going to a connector, which oddly enough fits directly 9nto the bike. I thought by some divine chance, that it might be plug and play. So I hooked it up, no blinkers. Tried turning on the bike aaaand blew the main fuse. Upon checking, it looks like the blinker fuse went too. Do now I'm working on replacing the fuse. Does anyone know which wires should go where here? I have an 03 vt1100c2. With the relay under the tank by the tree.

I just installed a 2-wire electronic flasher on my bike to remedy hyperflash when I switched to LEDs up front. Let me take off the side cover when I go to the shop in a bit. Mine was plug and play but do recall mention of switching the wires if they weren't in the proper position in the plug.

The original code may be for Battery, Load and Earth. - ?

The white/green wire is power into the relay than the grey wire goes out to the switch and lights.
Try to hook white/green to the red terminal. And the grey to the black.



The green wires are always ground (earth).

Alright! So, here I feel stupid. The plug and play was actually the right fix. When I reinstalled the rear fender, the left rear turn signal, orange wire, got loose and grounded out. Blowing the fuse. When I replaced the fuse and ensured the wire was right I was getting nothing but hazards. All flash. Except the left rear. So I rechecked the wires, put the wire back where it goes and everything is right in the world again. Thanks so much for your support guys.

I decided to add a running light bar to my ACE 1100. It's all LED, everything functioned fine (running lights and signals) with my factory signals in the back. I decided that I didn't like having different signal housings on the front and rear, so I bought matching LED signals for the rear. I installed an EL12, 12V (White/green) to X, Lights (Grey) to L. The rear signals I purchased are 3 wire for runnings lights and signals but the factory harness is only for signals in the rear. I pulled the tank and tapped into the running light feeds in the electrical box up front to five myself running lights in the back. The running lights seem to function just fine. When I switch on my signal, it seems to disengage the running lights and engage the signal circuit, but it's not engaging the flasher, the lights just stay on. I thought maybe I thought maybe I screwed up the flasher or perhaps had a defective unit and even took it back to AutoZone for a new one. I have tried removing the indicator bulb on the tree, but it doesn't change anything.

Any sage words of wisdom?

The video still has the indicators on the tree installed, I removed them after I took the video.

Not sure why it is dimming the lights when you turn on the turn signal. Maybe disconnect the rear running light wires and try it. You could just tap into the tail light wiring for the running lights in the rear to keep it simple. LEDs won't overload a circuit.


But just noticed the amber lenses in the rear. They have to be red lenses. No amber lights showing in the rear that stay on. Just like on a car.
