    Always on front blinkers

    if the only way to turn the front blinkers always on is to put the relay/auto off controller from a country that uses the always on feature, can some guys living close to each other try this before I buy and replace this part? And tell me the part number of the one I need, so I can order it. 😊
    In Bulgaria I can't find any bike with this mode.

    Thank you!

    Thank you!

    I think Honda VFR800X uses Alway-On indicator relay.
    In fact, I would install one if I knew where is  located in Crosstourer.

    The US has (or had) a requirement for the front indicator light units to be on permanently. However, 2 things to mention:-

    • They use the traditional stop/tail light bulb type (or did prior to LEDs). The lower wattage tail light filament (~5W) is what is used for the permanent on feature, while the higher wattage stop light filament (~21W) just for the actual indicators. So adding this is more than simply swapping the relay.

    • The CrossTourer runs the indicators at 9V and they WILL blow if you feed them 12V (don't ask how I know). I know of no other Honda that does this. There may be, but again it requires more research than simply swapping relays.
