LED rear light

Post by Akirasan » Thu Jul 18, 2019 10:38 am

I have fitted a 2007 twin round rear LED light to my 2000sp 1300.

everything works but when full lights are on the rear light dims.

When the engine is running the lights brighten but flicker with the revs.
If i put an extra live feed to it they are better but not perfect.

Any ideas??

Led might need a different relay, I know my indicators did. Is your reg/rectifier ok.

Maybe a fault in the light itself...is it a chinky chonky or OEM?...no relays needed for the OEM one
