I got this for Christmas:

http://www.directlineparts.com/product.asp?pid=2862&str=13&ID=118173035

I am having difficulty with the diode kit that came with it. I think it is used to as a load equalizer since I am replacing incandescent blinkers for led blinkers. However, I was uncertain where I was supposed to install this diode thing. The diode kit is simply 2 red wires with a black ground. The directions say to attach it to the turn signal lamp indicator and some disassembly of the dash may be required. So does the diode kit go in my dash or can it be tied into the system elsewhere?

The lightbar driving lights work fine, but when I use my blinkers the rear blinkers blink fast/rapid, and my front blinker, whichever selected, goes off. When I return blinkers back to neutral, neither active, the led blinkers(front) come on as normal. The only problem is when I activate left or right blinker the led/front blinkers simply go off for the activated side.

I think the diode kit is for the 1800C only,now the "load Equalizers" are for all models unless you have a solid state flasher that is not load dependent(I recommend this) Double check your wiring on those front signals...............................:smile: Rod

I have the diode hooked up and a load equalizer both in the headlight. You can also hook up the equalizer behind the right side cover, check here I used his instructions. http://bareasschoppers.com/ How is the new kury bar do you have any pics I had a ton of problems with the old one and took the spotlights off and put them on different brackets.

The Kury bar looks/feels nice and solid. Everything came together pretty well. It's not quite the look I was expecting though. Seems like they would go perfect on a C or F model. Too sleek in my opinion for a R. That's just the risk you take buying online.

One of the visors had the chrome "rubbed" off the top straight out of the package. Of course, DLP being the superstars they are, are contacting Kury and getting a replacement sent to me ASAP.

I'll get some pictures up tonight if I've got the time.

And I'll re-check the wiring since it sounds as if this diode is not necessary.
