You don't like the classic loud click?

I do, but I think I would have had to pay $2 more for a flasher that would have kept it up. While this soft clicking reminds me of Ferd signals, I'm trying to get used to it. All in all, it'* a nice change rather than a nice thing.

I had to edit the title because the turn signal flasher went out on Saturday. I replaced it during the day today, right before it rained, but this time I used a "Lasts 5x Longer"-labeled flasher instead of the cheapest one. Hopefully that will fix things. I even have some pictures of this swap that I'm about to upload to Your Ride.

Last bump! I'm about to go edit the title after this post. It'* fixed, perhaps! This new flasher hasn't burned out, and the turn signals are flashing pretty nicely with that classic click again. I suggest to anyone buying a replacement flasher to get one that'* labeled with something fancy like "Heavy Duty" or "Lasts 5x Longer" to make sure that the new flasher doesn't stop working within a few days. I think that the first replacement flasher that died was either too weak for "all three bulbs" or just plain sucked right out of the packaging.
