Please excuse my OCD, but I like to understand why some parts are here, if not, I can improvise.
I just wanted to know....thanks for bearing with me!:thumbup:

Out with the old...





(Below shows the long screws, also I used the head of the plate bracket screws on the botom side)


Its coming along.....now just the wiring of the IC relay and resistors!

Thanks.:D

Just found out that the 3 rubber grommets are for the rear tail light!
- Disregard the three large washers in the triangular tail light bracket photo.


I had originally thought the grommets were going to protect 3 (tail and blinker) wires from metal "edges".
thanks Forest....(Wheeling Cycle):bowdown:

Step 2
Rear wiring time...:thumbup:
I will secure connections when its final.

DRC Blinkers/flashers match up fairly easy (I think):headscrat

-DRC has black/red flasher wires.
-Our Yamaha WR250x has black with a brown/green flasher wire.

The blinkers work fine. :clap:
The brake light and plate light work too.:clap:

This works for me so far on the rear of the WR250x (below)

1.-The black wire from wr250x meets with black from DRC tail light (ground).

2.-The wires that used to power the plate light are now unused and get capped off.
Its got a thick yellow plastic connector with blue/black and silver hash marks.

Can some one post a DRC IC relay hook up for the WR250x?

I don't think I need the resistors if I have the IC relay box...???
....Or do I?
Forest from Whl.Cycle didnt think so, but opinions are always welcome.

I can hook up the front blinkers easily, but that damn IC relay box is hard for a "newbie" to get it into the mix.

Thanks.:bowdown:

The Stock flashers were CrAzY big! (below)


The Ic relay box connects to sommmmmething in here? (IC relay is on fender below)

....gave up for now!

I need to get home.

Here are some pics. (can u tell the IC relay box and resistors are missing?):thumbup:

This is really funny, most adults laugh at me when I drive by,
but most every little kid jumps up and down in their yard or sidewalk
like I'm some kind of superhero of theirs w/ a privilege to drive a motocross bike on the streets
. :laughingr

Thanks DRC, I'm a superhero now, all because of you.:bowdown::bowdown:





.......next is that damn flash rate and resistors.

Thanks.

Were the rubber grommets included in the kit or did they come from the stock ?Yamaha tail assembly?

"Forest" from Wheeling Cycle includes them in his DRC edge 2 tail light orders.

He stated that the DRC is from Japan, and needs more than just what the DRC package gives the customer.

He includes 3 gromets, 3, screws, and 3 little washers. FREE of charge.

I just installed the same kit on my wr250x, I really like the way it looks. I could not figure out how to use the ic relay though:hmmm:, is there any harm in not installing it? If I need to install it, would someone please explain. Is it used in conjunction with the o.e.m. relay? or in place of ? If the only harm is the faster flashing....I'm leaving it out. What did everyone else do?

I want to run a test in my garage at night to see the results in a controlled environment.....(before and after the install).

I will soon get the resistors and IC relay hooked up, but they might dim the lights a bit....MAYBE

One of these 2 products will obviously slow the blink rate.
I have been getting mixed answers from shops.:hmmm:

The IC relay replaces the stock relay (it's under the seat to the rear of the battery). The IC relay and inline resistors accomplish the same thing in different ways (you don't need both). The IC relay is the better solution. Because your flashers are now leds, they blink faster than the stock bulbs. The IC relay returns the flash rate to normal.
Your stock flasher relay has only 2 wires. The IC relay has 3. You will have to wire the 3rd wire (black) to a ground. I spliced it into the single wire connecter right above the battery, looks pretty clean. The other two wires you just connect to the IC relay. They will only work one way. So if your flashers don't blink, switch the wires. If you need pictures I might be able to do something..

The DRC IC relay installation results are in.:thumbup:
(this is for my DRC front/rear blinker project)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItZmBqWfID0 ...front with DRC IC relay (video results)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSQonpIa7Fg ...Rear with DRC IC relay (video results)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DyeBNqmuOg ...front without use of DRC IC relay (video results)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_qq9sAH_kE ...rear without use of DRC IC relay (video results)



Step 1.) (Below is the obvious side panel removal and location of factory relay).





......:clap: ...almost done!

Step 2.) (Below is the matching of your wires and grounding).



.....it was so easy, a Caveman could do it...

:thumbup:....Your all set, now just get that black wire grounded, and get the Red/Yellow wires to the factory Yamaha ones.
I did not want to cut the factory wires, so I used solder on the IC relay wires and
slid them into the white/clear connector with some
rubber cement and electrical tape.
(I always try to keep the option of "not cutting anything".....its easy to just go back to "stock").

Hope it helped someone:thumbup:

Here is what the DRC resistors look like.

There are 4 total and two per box (1ea./ blinker)



And I think below is the electrical info on the unit for you technical guys...(if it even helped)



I still dont know for certain if a DRC blinker and tail kit even needs one of these
after getting an ICrelay box too.:headscrat

I've got them just to be safe after spending @80 bucks on a tail kit
and $30-38 bucks per blinker set.

My only concern now, is to NOT dim the light output of what I currently have.

...remember "Newbies",
to click on the youtube vids 1-4 of the DRC IC relay box and
its flash rate correction.

.....fast flash rates get the attention of a knowledgeable officers to realize that you have messed with stock non OEM tail lighting.
If that even matters to you.
Some officers really punish that stuff.:rant:

Sorry for the OCD :Funny:

Thanks

What part did you miss?
If the question is towards me......

I was getting the sales run-a-round.

-This guy says you need our resistors to not burnout your LEDs...
-That guy says you need our relay to control the fast flash rate...

I dont know.

The instructions dont answer the question of needing both either.:headscrat

This is just what the people selling the products were spitting out.

Thanks
