Exclamation help wtf happened

ok bike (cbr f4i) rode perfect earlier today went to get some flush mounts...

there are two wires on the flush mounts and two wires on the front turn signals i already had (stupid looking carbon fiber cheap walmart turn signals). so i replaced accordingly then went i went to start bike it wouldnt start, and when i squeeze the brakes the turn signal lights on my speedo come on solid. the flush mounts worked but always flashed faster than normal there is a third wire and i tried all combinations and only one worked so i figured it was correct. now battery is dead bike wont start and flush mounts stopped working along with turn signals on speedo remain on while i squeeze brakes.


wtf did i do and how do i fix it :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead:

if there were 3 wires then you had combination running light/turn signals. 2 wires were for those and 1 was for the ground. Make sure you have the correct wire hooked up as a ground wire. if the 2 power wires were backwards it may cause your display lights to do that. you may have accidentally tapped into the brake power wire instead of the turn signal wire also, where are you located, i may be able to come check it out tomorrow

i had a similar problem, you may want to try another set of lights. I bought some that would kill ALL my signals because one of the lights was bad. Also, if your lights are Single Filament (2 wires) and your bike is Dual Filament(3 wires) just dont use the solid black wire(running light) and hook everything up as normal.

Now does anyone know of a way to stop the lights from blinking faster than normal?
