    Anyone ever put blinkers on a SL350

    Hey, did anyone ever put blinkers on a 72 sl350? How did you do it?

    Re: Anyone ever put blinkers on a SL350

    I make my own harnesses frequently...nothing tricky to it. you have a choice of where to tap into the stock harness for power, my recommendation would be to tap into the power supply where the horn is powered from (it's a black wire) the main harness.

    add a flasher in line between the power wire (black) and whatever handlebar switch you want to use.
    from the handlebar switch run a left (orange) and right (light blue) signal wire (split each signal wire into two and run one to the front and one to the back turn signal). then you can ground the turn signals directly to the frame or tap into the common ground from the stock harness (dark green wire) anywhere that is convenient.

    since the charging sysem on the SL is even weaker than the CB and CL's I'd recommend against adding dual element turn signals with always on running lights. I'd also recommend using LED turn signals since they drawl very lilttle electricity

    using LEDs you will need to use a Electronic flasher, availible at any good auto supply, here some simple wiring diagrams

    all it takes is time and money.... where are we going and why are we in this hand basket?

    I assumed you will be running the stock gauges without a turn signal indicator light so I didn't include one in my description and yes if you run LEDs your flasher relay will need to be one that is timed (designed for LEDs) since LED's don't pull enough current to cause mechanical flashers to flash. you could alternatively add inline resistors to make the standard flasher flash but since you asked how to add turn signals in the first place I assumed that doing this may be beyond your electrical capabilities.

    Thanks I will probably have to do that because i already have the flasher. BTW I am electrically capable. I just wanted to ask first rather than find out that the charging system was too weak or that i screwed something else up.

    My question is "Why would you add flashers?"..... It will pass streetable inspection without as it's "Grandfathered" (because they weren't there from the factory).....

    Re: Anyone ever put blinkers on a SL350

    personally I like having blinkers...it makes me feel safer. I didn't have them on my cafe bike for a few months after I first built it and while riding, I always went for the non-existant blinker switch... so I ended up adding them back on.

    I guess I'm just too well conditioned to using them.

    I also left the horn on my race bike for a while but folks didn't think it was funny when I beeped at them while passing on the inside
