Blinker - Electrical help

on my 2012 ninja 250 the front blinkers are "aftermarked it" LED and blink a lot faster than the back (stock).

I read something about adding a resistor ???
Has anyone done this and what do I need to do?

I have a set that came with mine somewhere in my garage. I didn't use them because I actually preferred the rapid flash. I'll look tonight and if I still have them they're yours.

These load 'equalizer' are the stupidest thing ever sold for the automotive industries. Marketed by non engineers hacking into their cars and bikes. They are just dumb resistors that burn power. They are on the level of stupidity of turbo whistles...
The previous owner installed LED on the front and I have the stock on the back. The black flash correctly whereas the front are fast.

Will the new flasher work with both types at the same time?

And if so, where can I get that flasher and what type?
