1968 R60/2

Today I tried to replace the original bulbs and 535 flasher in my Hella Bar End signals. I inserted the new LEDs and tried to install the new 6 Volt flasher.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Hella-Bar-End-Turn-Signal-6v-LED-BULBS-RELA...

Nothing. Nada. No signals.

The lettering is different on the new flasher. Can anyone tell me the correct terminals to install the new LED 6 volt flasher and/or what could be happening?

thanks

The Led Flasher needs to be grounded terminal E
E ground
B power from switch (X on 535 flasher)
L load to blinker switch (L on 535 flasher)

The 535 does not need a ground

P on 535 flasher was never used in your setup, I did use the P terminal because I have a pilot indicator in my headlight shell

Good ground is Large Brown on terminal switch
Also your new led blinker bulbs are polarity sensitive once you add the ground if they dont work flip the bulb over

LEDs

Tommy ......
Once again .... you are a genius. Per your instructions I grounded and connected the new Relay, turned the LED bulbs around and the signals now work.

I have restored two vintage BMW's and could not have done half of it without the help I received from this forum. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

R60/2 complete.

The sidecar gets here Sunday ..... on to the next project. Smile

Not until you also add L/R blinker to your Enduro bags
Anyway glad to help and all is working

Your new sidecar will keep you busy for a while
But if I know you better you then will need to add led lights to it
I already know how to add led lights for tail light Brake/tail/blinker and front running lights
Just need to now what bulbs are in it

I sure it may be a bit until you get to the lights but would be glad to help

Tommy
