LED vs Incondesent bulbs / Turn Signals W naked pics of girls

Rules dont apply to me so I am going to ask a tech question in the pub. There is no "Custom Motorcycle" section here like some of the other superior off road web sites here on the interweb so I feel OK about this.

I just converted my motorcycle's blinkers and brake lights to LEDs. They dont blink no more. Do I need to add a resistor or something to make them work again? I actually rewired the whole bike so it was a little more than a bulb swap. Not sure whats happening. Anyone have a clue?

If your LED's don't have the Resistor built in, then yes you'll need one.

I was introducing him to the entire website.

Here's something more specific, but I still reccommend viewing the entire message board to anyone interested in modifying their lights.

Automotive lighting subforum.
