Default LED turn signal problem

Installed the Proton flush mount signals in my 2010 Ninja 250. Instructions did not said anything about changing the relay to electronic, so the stock rear signals didnt work. Got a cylinder shaped grey smoke plastic relay from PEP BOYS and that solved the problem. Today I started installing the HOTBODIES undertail, connected all wires and this is where I am. Tail light works, licence plate light works, Turn on the turn signal either left or right, all four turn signals lite up at the same time. I don`t now anything about wiring bikes, but I`m thinking maybe the new relay isn`t capable of handling the LEDs of the four turn signal lights? If anybody could help, that would be great. Thank you forward for your time.

like these peeps said: the relay's the problem. I had the same problem and the relay fixed it. I got the relay for about $4 at autozone.

can someone provide a link where I can order? I looked on ebay and the one that's available is a 3-prong, my 2009 250r I believe uses a 2-prong relay.

Ok thanks. For $6 I ended up grabbing a 552 Tridon relay from Advanced Auto that someone mentioned on another board. I'll give that a shot this weekend and post results. If no luck, I'll order the one you posted above.

ok good. There's nothing special about the one I bought, or any of them for that matter. They should all do the same thing as long as they're 2-wire and the correct voltage.

The 552 Tridon relay did the trick. I really appreciate your help!
