You can fix this with inline resistors that I think cycle gear sells too.

As mentioned above^^^

Light Emitting Diodes pull next to no amperage(busa has four pods, four individuals and two hyper whites... pulls around 0.050 of an Amp.) Relays are basically controlled breakers that heat up a wire and separate contact when the piece of metal bends from the heat. When it cools it drops down and makes contact, allowing the lights to come on(clicking noise is literally that.)

Since LEDs dont pull alot of amperage, the relay never clicks off/on.

I know on my R6 if I switched the wires the lights just stayied on. try fliping the wires and see what you get..

The lights stay on when you go to signal or they stay on when you start the bike?

cheapest and/or easiest way. get whatever the stock bubs are, wire them up in a parallel with the LEDS and tuck them (stock bulbs) away under the seat or whatever.

Where are you in Houston? If your close to sw area I'll fix it for you. Have to purchase a part for about $10 or so. Don't use resistor, it gets hot.

Check the wiring at the back of the housing...there are 3 wires...ground, running ,and blinker...make sure the previous owner didn't try to mod it and mixed up the wiring. Sounds to me like the wires are swapped.

And it would still flash without the load equalizers....just flash fast
