Here's a simple flasher relay that will work for any combination of LED and incandescent bulbs WITHOUT the need for resistors.

This one is a direct plug in, but you lose the clicking sound:

CF12ANL-01 LED Bulb Electronic Flasher | Flashers & Load Resistors | Car Bulb Installation Supplies | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs

I elected to use this one that clicks, but requires installing a ground wire to the E pin:

CF13JL-02 LED Bulb Electronic Flasher | Flashers & Load Resistors | Car Bulb Installation Supplies | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs

I confirmed this works on my stock flashers and also on a friend's who's running half LED, half stock. But this will work with virtually any setup. The new relay is tie wrapped in place as shown. The yellow wire taps into the green ground wire on the headlight connector and connects to the E pin of the relay. Hope this helps.

El12 will solve your problem
I know others have tried this and found it to work, but that relay still has load requirements. The two options I posted will work with any type of blinker combo: all stock, all incandescent (lower or higher wattage), half LED, all LED, anything (within reason).

Why this may be true you have to order it. for people like me i have to have it yesterday i can go to any parts store and pick up a el12. Your suggested flasher is a great option for weird combos. But even front and rear led combos work with a el12. It did not work in my set up because my supplyed rear blinkers did not have built in resistors like my front did. I had to add 50 ohm resistors in my set up.

I would say if your running a normal blinker set up including leds for specificly motorcycles a el12 will be you best buy
Anything custom buy the one you found and give it a shot. Good find it gives us all more options

****** i am not a expert in electrical just like playing around with it wouldnt belive half the stuff i say ***

The parts I posted have no load requirements (doesn't need resistors) and will work for any combo (not weird combos).

Look up Watsen Design for some bad ass, super bright, very minimal lights

Ordered this relay and rear LED turn signals last night. Everything should be here Tuesday. I'll keep you posted as to the outcome of all LEDs and this relay.

Just make sure you hook up that extra prong on the new relay to a ground point. Otherwise when you engage the signal it will just stay on (not flash).

I ordered the -01 not the -02 because I didn't mind not having the clicking noise. Will I still need to hook a ground to the extra pin?

The -01 does not have a ground pin, so it's just plug and play for you.

Just wanted to confirm that this relay WILL work for all LED turn signals! Great way to avoid resistors! Thanks again bike is looking great!
