As for the signals, ask someone with your bike, try a cbr forum.

As for the LEDs, that's not true. Yes LEDs draw less power, but they still work. What will happen sometimes is that the amount of power they draw is so low that the bike will think you have a signal out, and to compensate they will flash at double the rate. The purpose behind this is that the indicator in your dash will also flash double the rate, in order to try to notify you that you have a light out.

However, this is not bad for the bike at all. You can just leave it that way, and I actually think it helps to increase your visibility by flashing doubletime. If it bothers you, you can buy inline resistors that will cause the bike to 'see' the correct electrical load and thus everything will flash at the normal rate.
