    Hi I’m new to this forum and came upon a problem while converting my 2019 st3 RS turn signals to LED version. I’ve replaced and reconnected all the wiring for the turn signals properly (note: R&G tail tidy added) but obviously the new LED doesn’t work normally. Front right blink in normal speed but the other 3 have about 45 seconds intermittent which raised this issue. I’ve been trying to locate the original relay to no success at all. Read some threads from triumphrat.net which also leave me puzzled since there weren’t clear answers to my problem. Bought the bike new from International Motorsports in Vancouver, Canada. It came with the normal incandescent bulbs. I’m hoping some of you more experienced triumph owners might have the answer to my problem. Thanks in advance.

    I think you'll find that you need a specific relay for the LED indicators - the standard one isn't suitable. Perhaps you could try a search on Fowler's parts web site to see if there are different parts listed?

    Good luck with it.

    I'm no expert on these mate but from everything I've read you will need to put resistors in when you convert to LED's ;);)
    Some wiggly amps geek will be along shortly to help out though :cool::cool:

    That’ll be my last resort indeed to use resistors. Still prefer to use relay as it’s simpler option. Much appreciated input nonetheless!

    Ok guys I’ve solved the problem by turning the bike on and switched the turn signals on then bam! all the light blinks perfectly! Never felt so dumb in my life ‍♂️ So I work mostly after hours on my bike like 1 or 2 am in the morning and the bike is always on trickle charger as that’s what we do mostly when we aren’t riding for long period of time and I guessed the electrical power are not at its fullest because of that which caused the turn signals not blinking properly.
    Anyways I just want to apologize and say thanks to everyone that responded with your suggestions. Lesson learned lol Cheers
