Need help wiring my flushmounts - HELP ME PLZ!

Basically I just bought a set of aftermarket flushmounts from my local bike shop to throw on my bike for the rest of the season. It didn't come with any directions or anything, but I thought it would be a real easy install so I bought them and have been trying to get them to work properly for the last hour or 2.

I took of the stock turn signals and see there are 3 wires. I'm guessing green is for ground, 1 for running light and 1 for the blinker. The aftermarket signals only have 2 wires. 1 is red (power) and 1 for red/black (turn signal?)

I've tried many different ways to connect them- I guess it wasnt the greatest idea because I blew a fuse. I tried searching and found a post that said I can throw a diode on the turn signal wire and connect them both to the power. Well I replaced the fuce and tried doing that and I guess I'm still doing something wrong.

When the bike turns on I can get it to light up, but when I try the turn signal the light just goes out.

If anybody has a diagram or can explain (with colors please) which wires I should be connecting or what exactly I'm doing wrong I would GREATLY APPRECIATE it.

I'm obviously not that great with this type of stuff, but I thought I could do this at least. Somebody please help me!!!
THANK YOU!

green is the one on both sides right? if so im pretty sure its the positive one. The thrid one you just cut off unless you really want the running lights and a slow blinking rate. I like mine fast since i have LEDs and it is much more noticable that way. If they are not LED then get the part you are talking about. They can be found at radio shack.

Green: ground
Stripe wire: Running lights
Extra wire: blinker lights

should be good. Just dont connect the stripe wire! Your after market lights should have one black and another color....

Black: ground
Other color: Blinker Light

Should be right! Hope this helps!

my led turn signals on my 600RR wouldnt light up at all. I checked and the lights were good. I read somewhere that some led blinkers wouldnt flash at all without resistors. Never got around to doing it though.

Right on the money.

Do your new lights have 2 wires or 3?
If you only have two you'll be losing your running light.

Cool, Thanks for the replys guys.

Now on the turn signal side, theres one red wire and one red/black stiped wire. Only thing is I tried every combination. Am I supposed to run both wires from the turn signal to 1 wire on the bike - with the diode inbetween? If so does anybody know which wire and which way the diode should be facing?
The more detailed info you can give the less fuses I will blow haha

Thank for all the help again - this forum is awesome!

If your running leds all the way around your right, you need some resistance.

How many wires total do you have? 2 or 3?

They are LED's. I don't have any resistors on them, I don't mind losing the running lights, as long as they blink - is there any way this is still possible? I just put on an aftermarket intergrated tail, so I guess I don't have any resistors on the bike? I mean I just want them to blink I'm not so concerned about the rate.
Thanks
