Assuming you are installing the Ducati mirrors/flasher.
You should probably ask the dealer if the new mirrors/flasher are a direct replacement for the Hyper front flasher.
I hope Ducati would make a direct replacement for their mirrors/flasher.


If not, some guys have done that change and can probably help you.

There is a setting in the dashboard computer that allows you to change over to LED lights. You may want to try this first. Otherwise, you can get an inline resistor from Motrax which will slow the slow the flash rate. I had to do the latter with my rears as the computer setting did nothing.

There are some posts on this if you do a search you will find some good info.

Out!

the dashboard setting for indicators to LED is only for the rear turn indicators, if you replace the stock incandescent bulb style indicators for LED indicators.

The dashboard blackbox requires that the LED's consume 3.11 W, as the orginals do. Looks to me that you need to put a resistor on each side in parallel or serial. Could you please post the Watt's of your new LED's, then I calculate for you the resistor and how to place it. You should find the Watts either on the LED glass or in the owners manual.
Should be an easy fix.

I put some LED'S on the front of mine!Used a 80 ohm 5 watt resister in parallel
with the winkies.
Do not put it in series or you will get a voltage drop accross the resister and the winkies will be very dim!!!
I think the replacement LED'S that I brought were 1.3 watt.
Resisters are very cheap so buy a few different sizes till you get the flash rate right.

its pretty easy,
(13.5x13.5)-(10w-new w)= required Ohms.
Usually about 22 Ohm and appropriate wattage.Make sure thet go in parallel not series ( ie the resistor mimics a bulb ).
Worked for me.
