Custom flush mount led signals

After seeing the flush mount led kits available for $150 or more I decided I was going to attempt to make something on my own for much much less. This is what I came up with...
P.s don't mine the dirty garage. It's a mess with all the snow we are getting...

The best part is I did all this with 1 set of amber led strips ($20) and 2 pieces of aluminum I had laying around ($7)

I wired it to the signals and they work great. Only issue is they flash fast now so that's where I need your help...

Where and which led flasher should I get or should I just wire in resistors to solve the fast flashing?

cyclegear have led flasher relay for kawasaki.
14.99 and the relay is under the seat in front of the battery, you will have to open the top battery cover. unpluge the old one and plug in the new one than you are done.

I have 2 questions regarding this:

If I wanted to use a strip LED tail light AND still use my existing turn signals (splicing the LED ones into my existing ones) would that work and eliminate the need for a new LED flasher?

If I had just LED rear blinkers and stock front and installed an LED relay would the front blinkers still be okay (basically would an LED relay still support the stock front turn signals

Thanks!
