installed on these models
Please let us know the
information regarding your installation so that we may post the specifics
regarding which bikes Blinker Buddy will work on and what modifications
Blinker Buddy work on my motorcycle?
To determine if Blinker
Buddy will work on your motorcycle, check the list on the left or you
may follow these steps.
Is there one indicator light for two directionals?
If your bike has only
one indicator light which flashes to alert you when the signals are on
and this light flashes when either the left or right circuit is activated,
then Blinker Buddy should work for you. The 2 wires that operate the indicator
light will be used to power the Blinker Buddy.
(2) Check your Wiring Diagram.
Determine from the
manufacturer or wiring diagram of your bike if your blinker system has
a common or shunted ground between the left and right blinker circuit.
You will use the positive wires from each circuit to power the Blinker
(3) Physicaly test your bike.
Do this with the key
off. Remove both rear turn signal bulbs from their sockets. If you have
dual filament bulbs, you need to make sure you are going to be touching
the signal circuit and not the running lights circuit. Turn the signal
on (left or right). Turn the key on. Using a 12 volt test light, carefully
connect it across the two center conductors in the bulb sockets. This
is the place where the center of the bulb base makes contact down in the
middle of the socket. Do not touch the sides! The test light should flash
with the selected left or right circuit. If the other side also flashes,
(like 4-way emergency flashers) and all 4 corners of the bike are flashing
or if the flash rate changes or stops, then Blinker Buddy will not work
on your bike unless you install 2 small relays. (refer to Relay Installation
You will need 2 small 12 volt relays. Each coil will get power from the
turn signal circuit. One on the left and the other on the right. One wire
of the relay coil will connect to the positive signal feed and the other
relay coil wire will connect to ground. You will need to supply a 12 volt
source from your accessory circuit to the normally open contacts of each
relay. The other side of the relays contacts will be connected to one
wire of the Blinker Buddy and the other wire from the Blinker Buddy will
go to ground. (see the diagram) The positive wire that feeds the contacts
needs to be fused if it is not already being done by the bike accessory
circuit. A 10 amp. quick blow fuse is more than adequate. The relay should
have very low coil current draw and contacts rated for at least 10 amps.
(We will post the information on the best ones to use once we start getting
feedback from those who have completed this modification)
