LED flasher unit
« on: June 28, 2018, 05:29:10 am »
Howzit guys,

I want to convert the indicators to LED on my 690 and do a tail tidy. Does it need to be the OEM KTM flasher unit/relay or has anyone been able to use another?

Iím sure you can just install the flasher unit available from STARTLINE which is cheap and simple to install. I installed it on both my 450ís without a problem.

You can also get the correct in line resistors. then the leds flash at the correct interval. I have the front running the original bulbs and the rear are running led with flashers. I got them from RAD. They are not the official KTM ones.
Africa Twin CRF1000 and KTM 690 - Aaaah yeah, perfect combo....

Thanks guys.

Do either of you have a photo of the item(s)? I have not clue what the unit looks like and want to get the right one

Got the flasher relay from Starline  :thumleft:

Does it replace the current relay?
I haven't looked the bike yet but have been unable to find any instructions on line.

Front indicators are standard with globs, rear will be flush mount LED's - will this work or will the front need to be LED as well?

I think you need a resistor for the leds.
I have the ktm led indicators and each indicator has a resistor in line.

normally, if the flasher is electronic, it doesn't matter what setup or mix you have - the flasher is not dependant on the load

Thanks!

Does this flasher replace the stock relay?
