I just replaced all the lights on the back of my 2015 Motor Trike Razor conversion with LED lights. Now the radio is noisy only when the brakes and/or turn signals are applied. I know it's caused by the new lights but what do I need to do to correct the problem? Alternator noise filter? Ground loop isolator? Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Diane

The LED's generate a radio frequency and interfere with the reception. There is no easy way to mitigate that. The conventional fix would be to put a ferrite bead or choke on each power wire near the individual LED bulb.

This is from Wikipedia:
"A ferrite bead or ferrite choke is a passive electric component that suppresses high-frequency noise in electronic circuits. It is a specific type of electronic choke. Ferrite beads employ high-frequency current dissipation in a ferrite ceramic to build high-frequency noise suppression devices. Ferrite beads may also be called blocks, cores, rings, EMI filters, or chokes "
