The Custom LED Blinker Genie is designed to allow single filament light bulbs, and single intensity LED lamps, to function as both running lights AND blinkers on Motorcycles!
This Blinker Genie is designed for use on Motorcycles. For Automobile applications, check out our Blinker Genie 2!
Most aftermarket LED blinkers support only a two wire connection, which means they can only be used as either a running light, or a blinker light. The Blinker Genie solves this problem, and intelligently controls the lamp to function as BOTH a running light and a blinker!
Properly connect any two-wire incandescent or LED indicators to the Custom LED Blinker Genie, and your indicator bulbs/LEDs will now stay on constantly as running lights, and blink when you engage the blinkers! (Note: the indicator will turn off for the duration of the blinker pulse - this is how the blinking is achieved.)
The Custom LED Blinker Genie is designed to be as small as possible while being as versatile and robust as possible. The finished dimensions of the unit will measure approximately 0.7" x 1.25" X 0.25" and can support up to 12A of current (see specifications)! This ensures our product will work for any application (blinking your headlights individually, or powering one single LED lamp for instance). To further ease installation and ensure dependability, the Custom LED Blinker Genies are water resistant.
Each Blinker Genie controls up to 2A worth of lamps in the recommended configuration. The Blinker Genie's are sold IN PAIRS. One will be required for each side of the motorcycle, and for every 2A worth of operated indicator load (25W).
For most applications, they are used in the front to drive two wire LED indicators. Technically, if you ran wires to the back, you could control the rear blinker lamps with the Blinker Genies as well. However, it is recommend that you use one Blinker Genie for each "corner" of the vehicle.
The Blinker Genie comes with 7" wires, butt-connectors and detailed installation instructions! Please read the important notes in the Installation Tab for other accessories that may be required to maintain proper function of the blinker system after installing the Blinker Genie.

You will most likely experience the fast-blink rate if you install the Blinker Genie on your motorcycle - even if you are using the Blinker Genie along with the OEM turn signal lamps. It is important to note that the Blinker Genie effectively removes the operated lamp(s) from the turn signal circuit, as the Blinker Genie powers them through the running light circuit instead of the turn signal circuit. This is detected as a bulb burned out by most motorcycles, and a fast-blink rate results.
The Blinker Genie only imposes a 2W load on the blinker circuit itself. Please consider replacing your flasher relay with one of our Electronic LED Flasher Relays (preferred) or use an appropriate Load Equalizer instead (second method).
Installation of the Blinker Genie is represented in the illustration below. Read the downloadable installation instructions below thoroughly for additional installation information.

AUTOMOBILE/CAR INSTALLATION NOTE:
The Blinker Genie was designed specifically for use on motorcycles where the running light circuit is on anytime the vehicle is in operation. We do not recommend installing this product on an automobile where the running light circuit can be on or off. For automobiles, we have a purpose-built Blinker Genie 2!
For motorcycles that do not have running lights in the front of their motorcycle (such as the new Kawasaki sportbikes), the red wire on the Blinker Genie must be connected to an ignition switched source for proper operation.
HONDA MOTORCYCLE SPECIAL NOTE:
In order to properly utilize the Custom LED Blinker Genie on many Honda Motorcycles, the constant power input wire (red) must be connected to a ignition switched source (other than that for the front stock blinkers). The little running light near the headlight is a perfect power source, OR you can connect the left and right running light wires together to create a constant running light source.
The reason is because the running light wire that runs to the front signals cuts off completely when the blinkers are activated, and stays off until the blinkers are canceled. This causes the operated load (LEDs or lamps) to not work properly as the Blinker Genie is designed to draw all power from the "running light" input wire.
Using a voltmeter, you can easily verify if you are having this problem. Simply measure the voltage on the RED input wire on the Blinker Genie to check for constant 12V power - blinkers on AND off.

Have not had the chance to install this product yet due due it being to cold in my shop. Will let you know though.
Light up your bike!
I've used these on my last few bikes to give a bigger light profile while on the road. This is particularly important commuting in the dreary, often foggy Seattle area. Over the years I've had a few co-workers who followed me in to work tell me how much more visible the bike was with the 2 extra amber lights vs the single red tail light. Installation is straight forward (somewhat bike dependent). It does require wire cutting and crimping but that keeps the product cost low. My preference is to solder and heat shrink every connection. The only other issues I've run into is the turn signal light overheating when run continuously and needing to replace the turn signal relay which goes into fast mode. Both issues are covered in the instruction sheet. I'll continue to add them to every bike I get.
