Default Problem with MBW Load Equalizer on 07 Vegas

This weekend I've been installing a set of MBW turn signals on my 2007 Vegas. I've put both the fork wrap around ones and the rear fender one on. MBW says that when both are used I should also install a Load equalizer to maintain the bikes stock flash rate. Here is some product information: http://www.mbwmotorcycle.com/products/Vegas.html

The problem that I'm having is that when I installed the Load Equalizer all of the turn signals flash when I try to use the left or right turn signals independently. Its as if I've turned on the 4-way flasher but I haven't. Now, without the Load Equalizer installed the signals seem to work fine although I suppose they're a little fast. The picture shows how I have it wired. Black to black, yellow to blue and yellow to blue with a red stripe.

Have I done something wrong? Or is this maybe a faulty unit? I guess the easy solution would be to just uninstall the Load Equalizer but that seems contradictory to the manufacturers recommendation.

Never mind folks I've answered my own question. I did a few searches and found an older version of the installation instructions which specify to tap into the wire that is black with a white stripe. Which I did and now everything works as it should. Here is the old version http://www.customdynamics.com/pdf/v4807.pdf

Hey, if you haven't done so already, you would be well served to download your model's owner manual as it contains the wire diagram for the ACM (in addition to loads of other good stuff): https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=10829
