Exactly what I did, no problems with heat here. I think that little bit of wiring might intimidate some people lol. I love how internet rumors spread. I could understand if you were wiring it inline with a running light, but for god sakes it is a blinking light that is on only at stops. Even still, don't mount it near anything that can't get hot and you are good to go. Think of how much hotter various other parts of the bike get and how close they are to plastic/paint. Just be logical.josh18_2k said:too hot?... i used the supplyd resistors- i wrapped them in electrical tape, and zipt tied on top of the empty plastic part of the undertray thingy.
btw- the resistor goes between the blinker wire and the ground wire. one for each blinker. it basically allows some of the voltage to bypass the bulb, slowing the blink rate.
i'm hoping the resistors arent melting anyhting... havnt had my seat off in a while.
My internet rumors comment was more to poke fun of the people who do the whole:ski6 said:The resistors getting hot is not a rumor! If they get hot enough to melt anything, I didn't waste my time checking. But they were hot enough to burn my fingers when on for only ten seconds. Do as you want.
