Universal 3-wire Flasher Unit for Scooters
Standard scooter flasher units have two major drawbacks. First of all, they need a high enough operating current to make them switch. Hence it’s impossible to operate in ‘LED’ mode (at less than 5 W). Secondly, they offer little or no audible warning if you forget to turn the indicator off. As scooter indicators aren’t self-cancelling, many riders forget to turn them off.
