This may be obvious to some, but I finished up my install on my Dana today and I've noticed the blinker(s) seem to blink slower than normal. Is it because tapping into the same wire for my Dynas power?

Or could be battery needs a good long charge?:baffled:



Thanks.........

Hey doug77:waving: Since most flashers are resistance type,thelower the "blinker" load, the slower they will flash. More bulbs in the circuit, the faster they will flash. With that said, it may be a bulb isn't burning or like you said, battery isn't up to snuff.

Yea Doug I agree with Gaswing on this one. Why not run a wire up the Aux terminal?? I think the 75 has one like the 78's.

Update, it was battery. Gave it a tricle charge, took care of it.

BUT, I am curious about your guys' opinions on my Dyna's hot wire. Instructions say tap into white/green turn signal wire, so that's what I did. Working great so far.

What's your opinions on where I should tap into for hot wire?

Also, should it be fused?

Thanks!;)

It seems strange to me that they would draw power off of a turn signal circuit. But I am sure the folks that designed it know lots more about "trons" than I do. I was schooled in the crap3 decades ago and a lot has changed since then. As for Fuseing the wire it should be covered by the blinkers fuse right?? If not it is definetly covered by the Main and it is a system required to run the bike so I would think that is adequate. Just make sure you connections are tight and well protected and that it is routed so that it can not get pinched or chaffed.

Re: Fusing. IMHO I would fuse the power supply at 115% of its normal typical load, regardless of where you are taking the power from. First, if this new fuse blows it will indicate exactly where the problem is. Also remember the fuse id to protect the wire and not the load, but when fused close to load it may help resolve a load issue. If no fuse and then the main supply pops, what caused it? That main supply protects wiring in general and must protect the smallest wire. You can never over fuse, jut use the correct type, fast blow vs. slow blow and the correct fuse holder.
