Recommended Posts

Hello to everybody here, I would like your help please, it's the first time I write something here....I am reading and reading...soooooo many things!!!Amazing forum and i would like to thank everybody here for all the information!!!

I bought 2 months ago the NC750x DCT 2018 model and a few days ago I bought a pair of LED handguards, more for the wind and the rain.My opinion is that are very nice, easy to assemble ( the 50%)  and the color fits with the color of my bike and windscreen.
Well my problem is that i try to connect the cables on the left handguard first and there was a problem.From the left side on the handguard I have 3 cables, orange-green-brown and right handguard light blue-green-brown.
The green is the earth the orange from one side and the light blue from the other is the direction lights and the brown to both sides to be wired...where?
I want the led on the handguards to light when I switch on the direction light only, so the brown cable is to connect it to the front main LED lights which I dont want, I dont think is necessary, I care only about the direction lights to switch on the same time with the leds on the handguards.
So I try to connect first and only the left side to check, when I turn the key and try to switch on the left direction light I saw that the led and the left direction light was ticking and it was all ok, I smile for a second,ok that's it I said....nice!!!!Very beautifull!........But when I turn the key to off !!!!!The light was still ticking, I took out the key but still!For about 4 or 5 seconds they continue to illuminate and i was hearing the clicking sound.
I try it 5 -6 times.I try different things but always the same.
What is wrong?What I do wrong?

Thank you in advance for any help!

Maybe it is for the hazards which can be activated even when the ignition is off. You could leave the brown out and just connect to the switched turn signal (orange or light blue) and ground; that should do it. 

 

What make / brand is this item. I could look it up online and check.

The handguard heave  2 pairs of 6 leds each, so 12 leds each handguard.

6 of them is running light and 6 for direction light.

Thank you for your interest!
