    Ok I have got the harder parts of this all figured out but am havin
    unexpected problums

    What I am doing is replaceing the stock blinkers from my scooter wit
    LED's. The stock flasher is crap and would not work because of th
    limited current drawn from the LED's. I have got a 555 circut tha
    works great at flashing them. But here is where my problum lies. Th
    existing flasher has 1 hot lead to it, it is hot all the time. an
    when I throw the existing switch the leads coming from the switch ar
    both hot. I don't have my multimeter here but on my test light th
    nonselected side will be dimmer than the side that is selleceted
    Therefore I know it is getting voltage even though it should be off.
    This is bad because i only want one side to flash at a time since i
    is for the blinkers on the scooter.

    Can someone give me an idea of a switch that would work to fix this.
    am thinking I can put in a relay to trigger the flasher but would
    have to have 2 switches? one to energize the relay and one to switc
    left or right
    Or would I be able to do both turn on the flasher an select the side
    wantwith one switch
    I am horrible at switchs. I hope this was clear enough for some help
    I thank you in advance

    Ken
