Flasher relay for T100

I am looking for a reasonable replacement for the flasher relay on my '02 T100. Triumph wants $60+ for the thing and I'd have to wait who knows how long.

I've searched & read all the posts that seem related, but mostly it's discussions about relays for LED lights, and rumors about relays that might be interchangeable. I have 4 10W incandescent bulbs.

The Hella part number is 4DB003750-13 . The specs are 2(4)x10W.

Every relay I seem to find is rated for more than 10 watts. I tried one and, of course, the flash rate was too fast.

Has anyone successfully sourced a reasonably priced replacement for this relay?

The model type CF13GL-02 on this page will work (at $12.95):

You could also ask in a BMW motorcycle shop for a relay suitable for BMW's series 3,5,6 and 7. They'll fit.

Thanks, Forchetto..


Have you used one of those? I don't see a wattage spec for those flashers, but if someone's used them....

Or are they the electronic flashers that don't care about wattage?

It has the spec listed - http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...CF13GL-02.html
20mA to 20A will flash at correct rate regardless of wattage of bulbs, or LEDs.

Are you in UK or US or ??? (you should add your location - and your year/model bike - to your profile)

Is this the same?

Ah nm, two versions; one for Japanese, one for German, though I'm not sure why language is an issue...

Thx

Take the flasher relay to a car parts store and they will be able to find the equivalent.

And adding your model and location to your profile will help other posters answer future inquiries.

Recent bikes use a 2-terminal relay model number FE218BH, this turns out to be a very common relay on Japanese bikes, made by Denso.

Lots of them on ebay for as little as 12, like this:

Triumph are selling them for 49.

Just to be clear, I'm installing kellermann halogens, and I've headed down the path of replacing the stock relay to have the proper flashing intervals;
we are talking about a flasher relay for LED/halogen replacement, correct
Sorry if I seem confused.

Don't know the answer, but the data that's missing is that the Kellermans use a 6w bulb whereas the OEM flashers are 10w. This makes the flashing rate slower using the standard relay.

If you're handy with electronics there are ways to change the flash rate to suit different loads, like isolating one of the integrated circuit pins or modding the sensor shunt resistor, details on this thread:
