My S4R has an integrated taillight that is LED... It came with resistors to use, but since I only did LEDs on the rear, my blinking rate didn't change. Did you change both front and rear to LEDs??

BigNick, that looks like fun. I have to search for the thread about the guys who went touring through Africa on bikes like that-it was a long and entertaining read (with lots of pictures).

Here's the thread I was refering to: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthre...ghlight=Africa

Mike, I'll see if I remember that one next time I'm in Blockbuster. It seems as if I always forget what I've been wanting to watch as soon as I enter the store.

I only changed the front, but I did order the rear integrated stop light/turn signals, and it comes with a heavy duty relay for the flasher's, hopefully that does the trick.

Good luck, I hope it works out.

BTW: The book "Long Way Round" is much better than the movie (but the movie is still great!).

Ewan and Charlie did two series: Long Way Around and Long Way Down.

I haven't seen Long Way Down yet, but will be buyin' those DVD's right around when the weather turns cold...give me a two-wheeled fix when I'm freezin' my tail off in the mountains of TN.
