    I'm going to do the same on the Front turn signal- Take off cover -Positap a Led strip to the front signal light that goes around the whole light so it can be seen from the back and YOU can Now see the turn Signal yourself instead of that Display which is terrible in the sun.
    thanks, sarge
    Back in Sept. I got the Lamonster brake turn kit from my daughter for my birthday.
    I had already gotten the Matazu bags with lights.
    Hooked up the bag lights instead of the ones with the Lamonster kit using the flasher dealie in the kit.
    Now I have brake and turn on the bags and rapid flash the solid on the brakes (from the kit).
    Works great and very visible.
    Working on a new front turn signal set up and relocated mirrors. More on that when it's finished.

The F3S is the only bike that shares the same lamp for stop and turn and the instrument cluster does not handle reprogramming for the dual case.

    I chose to program the lights to work correctly with the turn signal only. When I hit the brakes with a turn signal on, it flashes fast. Just the way it is. If you don't like this, go back to a filament lamp.

    I installed these quite some time ago and don't get hyperflash, with or without brakes applied. No resistors installed, just the bulbs and followed the procedure I posted previously.

    Sorry! I thought I was replying in general that I had decided to bail completely on the Lamonster LED direct replacements that I posted earlier in this thread about.... Never could get them sorted out.
