Frunt blinkers got me wipped.

07 VTX 1300 R NEW TURN SIGNAL RELAY NEW REGULATER.. NEW LED BUBLS Trying to put in NEW led white / amber/ bulbs also hooked up a NEW badlands load resistor 2. Now right blinker still flashes fast right flashes slow. Right white running light works good.. Left running light wont work at all. tested current flow with tester and Bike is sending the current to the wrong side of the bulb to work. .. So I took off the load resistor and put stock bulbs back inn. Still doing the same as I described above. Been running all kinds of back yard tests on this and IM STUMPPED.. I need input big time. what did I burn up what am I doing wrong?

Not sure what you did but you dont need load resistors if you already changed the flasher......I have switch back bulbs in mine.

The new flasher is a new Stock one. should I have ordered an up grade brand? The new led bulb is a Kuryakyn high intensity 1157 bulb. From what I was told I need a load resistor?

Leds are using milliamps and incandescent bulbs use about 2 amps for turns.
Flashers for leds can handle milliamps to amps.. Regular flashers(OEM) are for incandescent bulbs only(or add load resistors).
That is for flash rate only.

Before you did anything, did your front Run/TS work?
If YES, then whatever you did caused a problem or they are not compatible.
Some have added Switchback lights without issues, some have problems.

Wire colors for Right side are Light Blue(TS) and Light Blue/White(Run/Position)

Wire colors for LEFT side are Orange(TS) and orange/White(Run/Position)

Green is Ground. Without a good ground weird things happen.

On your other thread you mentioned White(Run) were flashing.
At idle with OEM style R/R my leds would get brighter at the charging peak voltage.
At higher RPMs the voltage peaks were more frequent and the light intensity was stable.
Flickering at peak voltage or flashing ON/OFF???

yea the white led running turn signal light flickers when rpms went up. just at idle was fine... now whats going on is left running light will not come flasher works fine. used my tester and it seams that the bike is sending the current down the flasher wire instead of the one that is uses for running light. and that's with no load resistor on it. all color wires are connected up by matching colors correctly .

Clean the TS switch. You have nothing to lose.
Dirt + grease do strange things, usually a resistance.

Bulb sockets ok?? Any corrosion on contacts or the base where the pins make contact?
Load resistors go from TS wire to Ground.
No load resistors on Run lights.

In the Step by Step board is a thread about TS cleaning.

Thanks for all your advice.. yea I took all the old grease out and put dielectric in the TS. all connections are cleaned . I ordered new stock turn signals for frunt left and right side .. making sure that all is new. after all they have been in there since 07.

I like all those little lights you have under your head light what are they and where did you get them? if you don't mind me asking..

Those are 3 watt component leds, 3.5v x 4 in series = 14 volts. A resistor to dim them at night.

Epoxied to a aluminum tab about 1.25" square which is then screwed on to a bracket.
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13105 has them also.

10 degree lens to give them some focus.
