The new load equalizer III must be used on all
2000 & up TSM or TSSM Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Harley-Davidsonís
with security systems, aftermarket alarm systems or the Harley-Davidson
stop and turn signal converter. The load equalizer III is solid state, we
do not use ceramic resistors in this module, and therefore we do not have
any overheating problems related to aftermarket alarm systems or the h-d
stop & turn signal converter.
equalizer III is really the best module to use on all 1991 to 1999
Harley-Davidsonís to circumvent any heat related problems.
On 1973 to 1990 bikes equipped from the
factory with a thermo flasher, you can use the load equalizer I or II with
smaller bulbs like the (CCI flat lens kit), (except for really small bulbs
and LEDís). Updating your motorcycle to our automatic turn signal shut
off module III or illuminator pro will run any size bulb, or led and gives
you self canceling features like the newer bikes.
On 2000 and up the load equalizer III is a
must. It was designed for the new breed of turn signal (TSM) and turn
signal security system (TSSM) modules. On TSSM models, a load equalizer I
& II will cause erratic flashing and the key icon to flash and not reset
to the correct code in the TSSM module. This will shorten the life of the
TSSM security module, unless you are using the load equalizer III.
On aftermarket alarm systems, part of the
security is for the 4 ways / hazards to flash when the alarm has been
tripped. The load equalizer I will melt after an extended period of time
(per the instructions) and the load equalizer II will eventually crack
over years of use. My recommendation is the load equalizer III due to its
solid state construction that does not use ceramic resistors.
The H-D turn signal converter, turns the rear
turn signals into brake lights while maintaining turn signal function. For
stock application this module works fine. However, if custom turn signals
are installed and you use a load equalizer i or II, the turn signal wire
now becomes live when the brake is applied. Now the load equalizer is
building heat every time the brake is applied, and during the turn signal
mode. My recommendation would be, to use the Load equalizer III or the
ďilluminator moduleĒ. Both have a built in solid state load equalizer that
will not get hot, and adds the running light feature, as well as the brake
On 1991 thru 1999 Harley-Davidsonís. While
the load equalizer I & II have been working fine since 1994, we do get
unhappy customers once in a while. If they did not receive their copy of
instructions, they end up using the emergency flashers for a prolonged
time and melt the load equalizer I & II. Shorts in the turn signal circuit
can also cause these modules to melt. An OEM canceller that goes bad in
the open position will also melt both the I & II module. My
recommendation, use the load equalizer III and you circumvent any previous
mentioned problems, the load equalizer III produces absolutely no heat!
