As much as some cagers ignore blinkers, I still think it's a good idea to go for brightness over anything else. I just hope I don't fry something with the 20W bulbs.

A HID headlight system is on my short list of things to do as well.
The 20W halogens are installed. They are much brighter.

Solder the resistor onto the back of the circuit board between the red and black cables. It does not matter which way round the resistor goes as they are the same resistance either way round.

If you do not have a soldering iron, get a terminal strip like the attached image from Tandy or similar big enough to take the existing wires on the LED cicuit board. With a utility cut it so there are two terminals for each indicator/turn signal. Snip the red and black cables and wire the black and red cables back together in the two way terminal. When doing this put the resistor across the terminals between red and black. I have done a small jpg to show this.

When wiring the indicators to the bike connectors, red is positive and black is negative.

I'm sooooo sorry I took so long to get back on here to reveal my results.

RICHARD - YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!!!!!!! Your above post worked like magic!!!

I bought 2: 15 Ohm 5 Watt resistors one for each of the LED boards I have (LED pic).

I used your diagram (LED and resistor pic) and my dad soldered it into place just like in your diagram.

THEY WORK PERFECTLY!!!!! And the Integrated rear-tail that I had on there already, does not have a resistor. But they all work FINE!!!!!!! I'm really happy that they work because I really was stressing over this for months.
