Has anyone found a set of LEDs for the front and/or the back turn signals with the resistor built in that fit? I have been looking all over, mainly online, for a set. I am trying to avoid putting in a resistor for the front or the back.

I found this one for the front turn signals

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm new to this but just about an hour ago I installed in my 2008 buddy 125 these for signals https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0739RCR3J/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and to stop the hyperflash I purchased the heavy duty flasher relay from Vanagon. Seems to be alright and everything fit good. Also installed these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0721FNCWP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for the dead lights with conversion from Vanagon

Ask around here for what LED bulbs people are running then swap out the stock flasher relay. No resistors needed.

This is is good relay

They worked fine with out a resistor in place for the front but they are bit too long, that round dome at the end makes them just too big. But they don't hyper flash.

There's usually enough resistance in one set of OEM incandescent blinkers to not hyper flash when the other set of bulbs is replaced with LED's. Once you replace both sets with LED's, that's when it'll happen.

I had hyper flash when I just replaced the front ones. I did order the resistor you suggested so I will be good after that. Tired of trying to find lights with it built in

Ah, my bad. I was mistaking when you have 3 sets of blinkers (dots, deads and rear). Yes, replacing one of two sets with LED's can cause hyperflash. This occurs when there's not enough resistance in the system. On an unmodified scooter, the hyperflash is to let you know that one of your blinker bulbs has burned out.

The electronic relay I recommended keeps the flash rate with any combination of incandescent or LED bulbs.

For the back turn signal and the dead lights I was looking at these.
https://www.amazon.com/EverBrightt-10-Pack-BA15S-Signal-Reverse/dp/B01ARM0W9E/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=BA15s&qid=1589426088&s=automotive&sr=1-7&th=1

Finding a R10W/BA15s bulb that fits is rough. Anyone have any suggestions?

VOODOOOOOO!
That relay you suggested worked great! I just had to play with the wire connections due to how it was worded on the back of the package. I also ended up using the rubber boot that came with it since the other was too big. The video you have up on youtube to install it was spot on!

One more thing, I think I have finally found some BA15s/R10W bulbs that will work in the deadlights and the tail turn signals.

I ordered some today and will post results.

Has anyone found an all-electronic flasher relay with the clicky built in? I miss the clicky.

Those lights in my previous post worked perfectly. I am putting up a pic so you can see what you are getting.
I used them in my rear turn signal and my front deadlights.
