Once the factory went to CAN/Bus beginning in 2011 on Softail models, the Badlands CAN – Bus Modules were born. These Badlands CAN – Bus Modules posed a challenge in many ways and now, a year later, we’re happy to have a full-line of Load Equalizers™, Illuminators™ and a brake Eliminator™. There are some important facts to understand before purchasing a Load Equalizer module.
The ONLY time a Load Equalizer is needed is when you install aftermarket turn signals on a 2011-Up FXST, 2012-Up Dyna or ANY 2014-Up model and you have rapid flashing turn signal indicator lights. Your bike will also throw a trouble code, see your user manual for more information on codes and how to reset them. Unlike earlier equalizer modules, CAN/Bus bikes require (1) module for front and (1) module for the rear turn signals. Many LED’s produced today are CAN/Bus compliant and do NOT require the use of Load Equalizers
