Help resetting the Canbus after LED install

Not to beat a dead horse, but I'm really scratching my head here. I didn't go the CD route. I found some really well made LED 1157 bulb replacements on Amazon... MZS tuning. purchased and installed. They are super bright and work well. The issue i am having is with clearing the codes. I have tried every possible sceniro I could find with making the canbus re-learn the flashers/blinkers without sucess. I don't know what else to try.

Ive tried all the suggestions from CD, which I didn't full expect it to work since it's a different maker.
The hazards/blinkers flash at normal rate, but the dash indicator hyper flashes and it throws all 4 BCM codes for the blinker.

If running the Hazards for about 20 or so flashes doesn't fix the issue I would say that they aren't compatible with the bike. Sometimes buying things at a great price doesn't turn out to be so great. Often you get what you pay for. Sorry

I have the same issue. They blink normal to traffic, just fast on the dash. So I live with it.

Did you run the hazards for several cycles after you installed them on yours?

Yes, I've tried several times. Each time it comes up here on the forum. One time there was very good step by step directions and I thought that would do it. But no luck. The flashers work but turns flash fast on the dash. I'm sure it's the AutoZone bulbs someone here suggested. But they flash correct to traffic so I'm going to live with it.

Check with a dealer. I believe there is a setting on the digital technician that will let you change the BCM to recognize the lights as LED instead of incandescent. Might help or might not.
