LED turn signal hyperflash problems?

I installed all led bulbs. Added resistors, fixed the hyperflash. Everything blinks fine when i dont start the bike. But when i start the bike, the turn signals dont blink in a consistant order. Its like blink...blink.blink.blink.......blink..blink...bli nk...blink...and so on. Any thoughts? Ill try to add a video.

What relay are You using?
It would be good idea to use a special LED turn signal relay and in most cases no resistors would be needed.

Not using a aftermarket relay or anything. Used the resistors that came with the bulbs

Those resistors should be picked up individually by measuring every led. Universal kits not always work as expected.
The best way is to go for an aftermarket led turn signal relay or sometimes called a led flash module.

When I installed LED signals on my bike I did what Tehnis recommended and got a new LED turn signal relay. I think it was about $10 on Amazon. With a new relay no resistors are needed.

Never argue with a fool: onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.

I went through my Amazon history and this is the exact one I ordered:

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It was plug and play and worked perfectly. Haven't had any issues, though it has only been a year.

It is underneath the seat behind the battery. I believe I had to remove the battery to get access to it properly, but I could be wrong about that. The hardest part was getting the rubber mount back on the clip properly when trying to fit it into the bike. From start to finish it'll take 15 mins max
