I can only offer my experience with this on my 996. I got the bike with a rear integrator and no front signals at all.I have the correct flasher relay, and I am not changing the dash lights to LED so I don't think that is the issue as it doesn't affect the rear turn signals on either of my bikes.
Which, I think, eliminates the need for the dash light diode if you are are not changing the dash bulb to LED?
Yeah....it's free, and you can't damage anything by doing so. Give it a shot and see what happens. As an LED is a light emitting diode, I've found that the diode part can make for some funky electrical issues.So - Pull the dash bulb for the turn signals and headlight to see what happens?
Sounds more like a faulty switch to me....but who knows. Could be a faulty ground causing that......seanA couple changes from HIGH to LOW later and it flips! Now the LOW switch is HIGH LED beam and dash light is dimmed (or even off completely). And visa versa. This morning it had gone back to correct, so far.
Do you mean the head light connector for the H4 bulb? Yeah....that could be an issue but IIRC, the ground wire there went to a tab on the front sub-frame?Since I pulled apart the 3 post connector for experiments, it is possible the ground one is not quite tight, I will buy another connector this morning. If that resolves the confusion between HI/LOW I will be all right.
OK - now I'm not in quite such a trashed state... I just checked over everything again, and the diode mod is needed. See the indicators.pdf link in this post - https://www.ducati.ms/forums/57-supersport/482265-wanted-led-bulb-list-95-900ss-2.html#post4834393Have you done the diode mod to your dash indicator light? The one that needs to be done if you're fitting a LED bulb in the dash? That also applies to fitting LED bulbs in the actual indicators, as the normal operation of the indicator reverses the polarity on one side (just the way it's wired). The diode mod means that both signal leads will be the same polarity. Look up the LED bulbs/dim dash lights posts in this forum - there's a better description in them.
If you still have trouble with your flasher unit, superbrightleds have (well - had - some time ago) electronic flasher units that should just plug in - fairly cheap IIRC.
It doesn't need to show the flasher relay. That is upstream of the +'ve connection, and just turns the +'ve feed on and off (look at the circuit diagram - Haynes manual) before it gets to the indicator switch. As for the brighter dash lights - it's well worth being able to see the oil pressure and charge lights in the daylight. Same for the indicators. However - even if you wish to use the original bulb, you'll need to do the diode mod to get the LED indicators to work properly. OTOH - just removing the bulb should work fine to prove things out.Although that post is not very old, I suspect it is not up to date on the newer flasher units for LED's and there seem to be a lot of alternatives out there from the parts listed. The part of the diagram dealing with dash lights misses the flasher relay circuit (which I think provides the diode for the dash unit in the circuits as my other bike works fine without the mod - again, no LED in the dash lights on the other bike, but a pair of normal LED turn signals with two-wire connections each instead of the one on this new thing).
I do not desire the dash lights to be brighter - at all. In fact, I'm willing to just remove the blinker and high beam/low beam bulbs if it will help and stop looking right there for solutions.
I got held up yesterday and some errands this morning, but this afternoon I will pull the bulbs and just connect up the signal wires to the turn signals in the LED headlight to report back.
After a lengthy CL search of the West Coast CLs from San Diego to Seattle I found there are a handful of 900SS's for sale in SoCal. A buddy of mine is also on the hunt for an old slab side 900SS, hence my search for one in his interests.Member *RockAZ, really nice basic machine! What did you have to pay for that bike? I'm looking for one myself but the likelihood of finding one in Yuma is about as high as finding ocean near all of the ~beach~ (ahem ...sand) around here!
I'd be willing to drive to Tucson or Phx ... I'll keep searching, one is bound to surface!!
