Hey guys, has anyone fitted aftermarket (i.e. not the BMW options) LED indicators yet?
I'm looking at the Kellerman ones.
Do they require a relay? Which relay fits?
I don't know about a relay, there's no turn signal relay in these bikes, the electronics do all that.
I'm not familiar with the Kellerman, but they either need to have resistors built in or you'll need to soldier in your own somewhere in each circuit.
LED's in general pull much less power than filament lamps, you need to fool the can-bus and have a very similar load or they might not work or you'll get LAMP error on you dash.
BMW LED signals have the needed resistors built in, making them plug and play, at least from my experience.
Good luck and keep us posted with what you come up with!
I remember reading that the nineT was to have some kind of hybrid electrical system using can-bus and more standard (old school) wiring to allow easier customization. So far I don't see where, I still got an error/canbus killed the circuit when I tried a higher wattage headlamp and the main harness looks the same as a 12R with plugs for signals.
