LED Tail light

Ok, i bought a aftermarket led tail light, and it has the blinkers intergrated with it. I have a 03 suzuki katana 600f, i hooked everthing up like i thought it would go, tied the liscence plate light with the tail light just like it was when i took the old one off. Hooked up the wire harness from the new light to the old harness, and hooked up the blinkers. Now the left blinker flashes really fast, and the brake light does not work. Both blinkers do work, liscence plate light works and the tail light works. Can somebody help me please.

My integrated tail light came with a resistor (black brick) to temper the excessive blink speed, but I didn't need it. Have you tried pulling the license plate light off yet? Start there. If the blinkers are operating correctly in terms of your switch and the tail light's lit, I would guess your wiring is at least mostly correct. Check with the tail light manu on a resistor recommendation (measured in ohms) and you can probably pick one up at a local electrical supply shop. Maybe even an auto parts store.
