    Where do you connect the two diodes, there is only one Brown wire that goes to the indicator...
    I founded a crimp with two Brown wires far away in the main wire beam, is it this one?

    left turn wire yellow
    right turn wire green
    Black is ground
    I hooked a resister in line one to yellow and one green wire. then the other end to ground. My self canceling turn signals still work. Guys have just put a inline bulb hooked to each wire in the headlight housing and that works to.

    No. Both diodes go on the brown wire near the indicator bulb in the instrument cluster. Did you see the photos in the first post?

    Its been awhile so bear with me here. Cut the two wires that feed the light in the instrument cluster. Brown and green. You need to extend one of the tails from the indicator bulb long enough to reach the negative wires on the back of the cluster. The other wirefrom the indicator gets both diodes soldered to it. Now, you connect the two wires from bike harness to the diodes.

    I left the stock relay connected too, but no more self cancelling...

    Something special to do with another wire?

    Did you change anything with the relay wiring?

    With everything on LED (signals, tail light), I just needed to add the diode on the dashboard. I kept the stock relay and its self cancelation. I just gave up on the running lights front and back.

    I was surprised I didn't have to change the relay.

    The brown an brown/white wires were cut and connected to the ELFR, nothing more...

    The ELFR will not allow self cancelling signals. You have a few options.

    1. Keep as is and forget about self canceling
    2. Remove the elfr and rewire the stock relay. Everything should work but the lights will flash fast
    3. Same as #2 but add some resistors in the circuit and the flash rate will slow down

    Of course the ELFR cannot...
    I misunderstood you old post, i saw this :

    [​IMG]

    And i thougt that with OEM and ELFR both connected, self cancellation was working...

    Can anyone tell me if the Original relay has any other function other than a relay? I’m asking because of all the extra wires going into the unit.
    Thanks in advance

    If you have a smartphone you can download Google Translate. Then you can open it and select Japanese and download that. Once it's downloaded choose Japanese to English (or whatever your preferred language to read is) and then click the little camera icon. You will probably get a prompt asking for permission to access your camera. Click accept. Then hold your phone over the text and it will turn the Japanese text to whatever language you chose. It will be a little weird as sentence structure and certain terms will be different but, it may get you the information you need to get the job done. Good luck!

    Yes, the original relay unit has self-cancelling feature, it will turn off either after 10 seconds, or 150 meters (490 feet), whichever is greater BUT ONLY WHEN MOVING.

    The 5 wires are:
    black = 0v
    brown = 12 V
    brown/white = power to the lamps (on/off flash)
    red/yellow = start signal
    green/white = speedo reed switch

    Brief operation. When red/yellow is grounded, the lamps start to flash by means of on/off power on brown/white wire and will do so until the indicator is cancelled by pressing in the switch on the bars or after either 10 seconds, or 150 meters (490 feet).

    The green/white is signal from reed switch in the speedo head that is closed whenever a magnet goes past the switch (there are actually 4 of them). This is how the unit figures out not only that the bike is moving and also how far it has travelled.

    It seems that the flash rate depends on the load so if LED lamps are fitted, the unit either stops flashing or flashes at incorrect rate, I wrote "seems" as the unit fitted to my bike flashes at the same rate regardless of what lamps are fitted or no lamps!, unfortunately that rate is too fast for UK.

    Fitting an external relay as described means the self-cancelling feature is lost - the important wire here is the brown/white, the other connector to the replacement relay is 12 V which can for convenience be the brown wire or directly from the switched live.
