Kennylxix Ehhh...it happens all the time. Someone gets sweet new led turn signals. After install they realize no Blinky and decide to fix it later. Later never comes.....
I've bought 2 bikes with that exact problem.

justbreathe Sounds like the new battery fixed your issue. Keep in mind, a trickle charger is only meant to maintain a charge during storage, not enough juice to charge a dead battery. Should probably check that the alternator is producing more than >14VDC at the battery while its running. Hard to imagine that the previous owner had been riding with non-blinking turn signals. Still, could be a bad relay.

Roberts When you turn your bike off use the key and not the kill switch, people tend to leave the key in and on when using the switch which kills the battery

Kennylxix Thats true only if he's not going to be using it much or only driving very short distances. With normal use the battery tender is kind of redundant.

Consider getting a battery charger / maintainer. It will help your battery last a little bit longer and also prevent surprises like the one you experienced.

iahawk yep, when I first installed my LED turn signal bulbs they just went on solid until I swapped out the relay

Kennylxix Depending on the overall current draw they will make the flasher faster or not work at all leaving the lights stuck on.

Don't LEDs usually make it flash too fast?

Kennylxix You can pickup a solid state flasher relay. They are designed to fix the issue.
