I noticed something strange riding home tonight. My left blinker blinks 2x the rate of the right one. Originally I thought that one of the bulbs had burned out, but all bulbs light up. I did replace the bulb when it blew out a week ago.

Could this be a problem with the wrong bulb? Might the relay be wacky?

I'm puzzled. Thanks!

Probably the bulb. Thats right, if it's less resistance it will blink faster. Try switching a bulb from the other side an see what happens.

I thought blinkers were Rheopectic?  Or should he just use STD engine oil?  Rotella maybe? Castrol GPS?

Please let me know what you find.  I'm about to do this mod myself.

No, seriously I think fast signals are dyslexic or have ADD.... just add some ritalin to the blinker fluid...
