  • Indicator warning light issues

    I have replaced the OEM speedo and idiot lights with a nice new shinny POSH mini speedo with the integrated LED lights for high beam, indicators etc. The bike is an old Yamaha SR250. The problem is, when i switch the indicators on, both work but only the right side sets the indicator LED light off on the speedo. When i switch to the left the light stays off. I have plugged the old speedo and lights back in and all is fine with that, both sides work. The big difference is that the old has a light (Left and right) that indicates the side on. The new one only has one light.

    Does anyone have a solution or have any of you been through the same? I have tried so many wires orders but no luck.

    Sounds like your going to have to join the two original indicator light wire together. That way either side will flash the single LED.

      That won't create a circuit between the two lights and turn it into hazards though, will it??
      Correct me if I'm wrong...

        Yes, you are correct. Double flasher. It seems the old unit with the lights left and right, had earthed both. That is the main difference i can see.

          Two diodes, anode goes to each indicator line and the cathodes connect together and go to the idiot light.

          Diodes available from Jaycar, Altronics etc.
