I am running a brake light flasher with my secondary LED brake light unit. I have paralelled the LED to my normal brake light circuit with the flasher controller in series with the LED circuit.
When the bike is not running, the circuit reads 12.5 volts and the LED flasher works as designed (when brake light is activated).
However when the bike IS running, the lead wire to the circuit reads 14.5 volts and the LED doesent flash at all, but rather just comes on and stays on.
According to the manual for the flasher, its is intended to function between 6-12 volts only.
Should I just install a resistor to the lead? and if so, of what resistance value? (anybody know the formula?)
Or do you guys have other suggestions?
