Unique problem with LED indicator/tail light

Hey everyone! New to the forum, thanks for having me.

I have just spent the last couple of days scouring the forum/google looking for a solution to this problem as well as double checking all my wiring/connections and have found nothing.

Proud owner of a 2008 Ninja 250R, I have just replaced the front indicators with LED's as well as installing an integrated LED tail light. I installed an electronic flasher (tridon 2 prong) and a no cut diode kit from customLED.

At first glance everything is functional, the indicators flash and the relay clicks just as it should except every 10 seconds or so it pauses or ticks double. Then every 30 seconds or so the indicator will just stay illuminated and the flasher will emit a beeping sound. This would be acceptable however as soon as I get the bike moving more than a few km/h it instantly does this and wont flash at all.

When I installed the integrated tail light there was only a single cable for each indicator so I just connected those to the green wire in the bike without a resistor.

Ive been scratching my head over this for hours, really hoping its something little thats easy to fix. Any possible solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for any responses!!

Use one of these along with your no cut diode kit.

1.) Tridon EP34 relay- Can be found at just about any autoparts store, or can be easily ordered from amazon. It has 3 prongs, each marked B,L,& E. You ground the E pin on the relay. To do this, you need about 12" of wire, attach a 14gauge female spade connector to one end and a ring terminal on the other end. You slip the female spade connector onto the E-pin, then screw the ring terminal to a ground somewhere on your bike.

or

2.) CF12ANL-01 flasher relay- It has 2 prongs just like the stock flasher so you don't need to add any ground wires, but you will likely need to order from this website http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...2Fflashers.htm. as they aren't found at your local auto store or amazon.

These methods have been tested and proven to work.

Hey mate thanks for the info, I currently have the Tridon HD12 connected which has the following specs:

HD12 Electro Mechanical Flasher
Not polarity sensitive - can be used on positive and negative ground vehicles.
Suitable for flasher & hazard light applications.
Flash rate is not influenced by load variation.
Operating Voltage 11 - 15 volts D.C.
Also available in HD12PAC retail blister pack.
12v 1 to 6 x 25w 2

Will those other ones make a difference? the specs look the same to me. I'm not worried about the price, I'm in Australia so I don't want to wait 2 weeks for it to be delievered and then not work.
cheers
