Resistors do get hot, even the ones that you can buy just for this purpose get really warm. That's how they work, they dissipate the voltage by generating heat.

I put an electronic flasher on mine, but it will only work if you have LED's in front or rear but not both. It needs some amperage to make it work, so you need at least one regular bulb on it.

Here's a flasher that directly replaces the stock flasher. Several on here use it. You can find it on ebay.

And a DIY from Robert Mays that works.

Yes I agree

I bought one and it works like it claims, I do have one forsale that came with my intergrated light from Clear Alternatives if you want to purchase it. Its not a resitor but a true flasher relay. Price 35.00 plus shipping. You may want to call CA and see if you can purchase one seperately, I may be over pricing it let me know.
