LED Resistors Guide

Installing the CLICKnRIDE® Resistor on your motorcycle enhances the performance of LED turn signals on bikes originally wired for incandescent globes. 

Typically, LED lights draw significantly less current, which can cause hyper-flashing or prevent flashing altogether if the system lacks sufficient resistance. 

Our CLICKnRIDE® Resistors are engineered to adjust the flash rate to a normal range of 60-90 Flashes Per Minute (FPM), ensuring your signals operate correctly and visibly.

For optimal functionality, add a CLICKnRIDE® Resistor to each LED light within the signal circuit until the necessary load is achieved to activate your flasher unit. 

Note that some motorcycles may not require a resistor if incandescent lights are retained at the front while fitting CLICKnRIDE® LEDs to the rear.


Locate the LED Turn Signal Wires. The CLICKnRIDE® Resistor should be installed with the red Lead wire connected to the + Positive signal wire and the black Lead wire connected to the—Negative signal wire. 

LEDs are polarity-dependent, and each motorcycle manufacturer can have a slightly different setup. If you’ve added resistors to each LED Light and your indicators still don’t work, try swapping the resistor’s red and black wires.

Select a location for the CLICKnRIDE® Resistors (Note: They will get hot when the signal is flashing, so avoid mounting them on the fairing or other parts that may be damaged by heat). Wires may be shortened if desired.

If your current setup has 3 wires, you would omit the Running light wire and only use the + and – wires.
