No one at all has installed rizoma turn signals ?????
We got an equalizer and installed it with the rear set of signals and stock front signals and everything worked fine. Then wired up the new front signals and all the turn signals came on but did not blink.
So we got another equalizer and wired that into the front turn signals, now they blink at the correct speed, but no matter which turn signal you turn on they ALL flash at once.. argh!!!!!
The turn signals have three wires each, one of each is not used (yellow). The equalizers have three wires, one black and two purple. Anyone have a clue please help before we fly to italy and strangle someone from rizoma with these things!
The only thing that puzzled me was that the Rizomas (LED) have 3 wires whereas the stock signals have 2. But they worked. I have them only in the front. They blink faster than stock, but no problems at all.
I installed front and rear LED turn signals (not Rizoma) and found the easiest way to get all 4 to work properly (which was recommended somewhere else on this board) is to wire a set of the original signals under the seat. I split the rear turn signal wires to go to both the external LED signals and the stock bulb and bulb holder which fit nicely under the seat. This provides enough resistance on both the right and left side so the signals operate as if a bulb is not functioning on each side and the LEDs end up blinking at the faster than normal rate.
Thanks for the tip, that does seem really weird that it would help as the whole issue with LED turn signals is they have a VERY high resitance which in turn causes the high speed flash similar to a bulb being out, as of course if a bulb goes the resistance is infinate.
We are going to play around with the grounding of the equalizers and see what happens.
That's a great tip on wiring a set of bulbs under your seat... I never thought of that, but it makes perfect sense.
I'll be swapping out my fronts with a pair of LED's shortly, so I'll keep this in mind if the resistance is too low once I take the stock units off.
I think you need the resistor kit. There is a wiring diagram with them (I heard).
The exp0lanation I got is ...
Rizoma uses bulbs that are manufactured for the European market. You know .... your a pee on I'm a pee on.
ANyway, I bought thoes exotic dual headlamps and the main bulbs are "availiable here but not to easy to get" is what I was told.
Hate to say it but you may have the same problem getting replacement bulbs.
