 I''m not the most electronically tech savvy, but why do you need extra resistance (by my understanding, bulbs do that anyway) ? I think resistors are needed when using LED's on a conventional flasher unit... *dunno*   Maybe a relay is what you need  *dunno*
Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy

I hope that I won't need a resistor now with a 21w flasher unit  *smiley4*
