That's not programming, that's adding load to trick the system. I've got my LEDs wired up with resistors already.Just wire a pair or ceramic power resisters 20 watt 8 ohm in parallel. A few bucks from RadioShack. I safety wired them to an aluminum brackets and riveted to the battery box.

So just to be clear you are saying the newer Monsters (696/796/1100) DO NOT have flasher relays that can be swapped out like the older monsters? I have a 2011 796 and am trying to avoid running resistors for my LED indicators if possible. Can you clarify please.Later models have the facilty to program the circuit for LED's or incandescent.
Yes, flashers were integrated around 2004.So just to be clear you are saying the newer Monsters (696/796/1100) DO NOT have flasher relays that can be swapped out like the older monsters?

I see. As an alternative to installing resistors you mentioned earlier in this thread you can have the dealer reprogram the ECU to accommodate LED indicators?? Is this common knowledge at dealers?Yes, flashers were integrated around 2004.
Incidently, I measured the temperature of resistors during operation, after 2 minutes of operation there was barely 1 degree increase.
So this is done through some kind of Ducati diagnostic/programming software or this is something I can do myself? Why has no one else ever mentioned this?I'm not sure if this is common knowledge, I observed this at my dealer when the very first streetfighter was delivered, they were scrolling thru the menues. I can see exactly how ir works by switching the reference circuitt
If the flasher is integrated into the ecu there's no way a user could change it on 2012 796. The ecu is a sealed box with nothing but the connector exposed. It would have to be done through software as there's no dip switches or anything you can get too. Unless you can open up the ecu to get to the circuit board, I never paid much attention to it when installing the termi system but it looked sealed.Perhaps because they don't know, what I saw could be done by a user
