The only place that I have found that I might have a chance with is this company
https://www.customled.com/collection...ays/make-honda

When I emailed them, their reply was:
"Thank you for your interest in our products. We have never been able to make sense of the Goldwing variations. The parts diagrams show one thing, and the customers bikes have another. There have been some models that are compatible with our ELFR-1 Flasher Relay, but I wouldn’t be able to say for sure unless you send a picture of the flasher relay on your bike. Also, do you have a wiring diagram for your bike from the factory repair manual? I will be able to advise on the hard-wire possibilities as well if I have the diagram."

I will see if I can scan the wiring diagram from my maunal and send it to them, unless someone here already has a pdf the wouln't mind sharing.

I was able to source one from my local AutoZone, but my bike is a ‘82. May have been some changes in the 17 years between.

EDIT: I found this info...

The flasher will fix the turn signals but .... Wasn't there an issue with LED brake lights? The old brain cells say something to do with the Cruise? Or was it Turn signal cancel unit?

There's something that doesn't work right (besides the flasher) without the load. Gurus?

I don't think the rear bulbs affect anything but the cruise won't work with LEDs in the cruise lights in the dash.

I found this flasher yesterday. I ordered one and will see how it works. For $8, it is worth a try to see if it works.

Flasher has common SAE terminals used on autos and comes with adapter harness that matches GL1800 plug either male or female. You may need to modify to match your harness.

Wires ALL have markings every 12" on every wire ever made. Due to this being a Honda the metric version is correct, however, getting metric wiring in the US can be a challenge. Use a Metric to Standard Conversion Calculator (easily found on Google) to correctly size your wire. 18 AWG is not really good enough. 16 is better but can only handle 10A, which should be sufficient for an LED Conversion. 14 AWG is best for analogue as it can handle up to 20 A.

You should do some reading and become better educated on the subject before making a final decision. I would agree that adding a resistor is an over-simplication with additional and multiple failure points that are not necessary.

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.

Hi, I’m just curious why you need to put in a resistor, I have a 91 Goldwing Interstate and every light on my bike is LED’s from the dashboard on down and I have no problems whatsoever.

I switched all the bulbs on my ’84 Interstate to LED including the headlight. I used PartsSquare 3 Pin CF13 JL-02 electronic flasher relays for the turn signals and emergency flashers. They were $7 each. It was a while back, but I don’t remember any special issues with the relay connections. I did have trouble with the rear lights not coming on, apparently the relay/safety switch for the taillights need more resistance than the LED’s provide. Through trial and error, I found that just one incandescent bulb in the circuit will make it work so I wired a trunk light (incandescent) into the circuit. Now everything works great.
