Street Scrambler turn signals problems

If there is a thread for this already, please point me in the right direction because I couldn't find any.

I am trying to put on aftermarket turn signals on my 2018 Street Scrambler. They are single filament, two wires signals. I connected the front ones no problem, but when I tried to connect the rears, none of the signals worked.

Fuses are not blown and neither are the filaments in the signals themselves. Tail light and license plate light work. When I remove the rear signals, the front ones work again.

Is there any special wiring I need to know about when trying to connect the rear signals?

What were the lights on there before hand?

There are 4 different indicator types that can be coded in.

https://www.triumphinstructions.com/...9838043-EN.pdf is handy refererence for how to do it.

It might just be worth cycling round each of the 4 types to see if the indicators work in one of the configurations

I was hopeful you were replacing LED ones with filament ones but it sounds like you are replacing filament with filament which, assuming they are the same wattage, should behave the same way.

(are they the same wattage?)

Turns out I am idiot and the wattage is 23w, while stock was 10w. Strange that it didn't blow a fuse, but whatever. I'll probably just go buy a bulb that is the correct specifications instead of buying whole new signals. Thanks for helping!

Ah, good news.

The CANbus stuff is great in some ways, especially as it allows you to go to low-wattage LED stuff without messing about with adding resistors etc, but it can sometimes make things a bit trickier!
