There has been endless discussion of LED signals. If you do a search, you'll probably find more info than you care to have.
To answer your question, yes the resistors get hot. That's how they work. The reason your directionals are bilnking fast is that the flashrate is determined thermaly. The LEDs use less energy so the flasher cycles faster. The resistor puts a load back in so the flasher acts normally. The truly simple, clean, easy way to fix the flash rate is to use a flasher that is made for LEDs. no heat, no extra connections to fail, no sweat. Ca Cycleworks sells 'em, I got mine off Fleabay.
