Integrated tail light help.

Got my new aftermarket undertail kit in this week. Fitment was a , doesn't look outstanding, but it's there. Packaging came with minimal instructions as well, go figure.

green = signal
red = brake
white = tail
blk = ground

so, I've wired it all up and the signals flash super fast and tail light doesn't work (Always in brake light mode). I'm assuming I need a resistor of sorts to slow the current down. Anyone know this stuff or can direct me to what I need to slow down the flashers and get the tail lamp working?

Headed back to the garage to flush the front brakes....back in a bit.

That should have come with resistors. When I installed mine I had to install two.

You can also open the turn signal relay and cut the circuit on the board that induces fast flash from the lack of load in response to a blown bulb.

I did this instead of buying the 35$ "LED compatible" relay since this is all they are doing. Works flawlessly, no problems for over a year so far.

Load resistors are heavy, ceramic, prone to cracking, hard to mount, not something I recommend on a bike. This also keeps your wiring closer to stock.
