the resistor must be 39 Ohms, or it will not work.

adding a 39 ohm resistor is easy but what size resistor do I need? 1w, 5w?

Or these, for less money, although they do need to be either soldered in or connected with a Positap connector:

or chassis mount type:

Anyone know what gauge wire BMW uses for the taillight, brake light and turn signals? Or what the plug type is? looks like similar to bosch.

I know this is an old post, but just wanted to add an update in case someone is still wanting to retrofit the OEM turn signals available in some European countries and Australia to a U.S. version, Gen 1. As already mentioned in this same post, this function has to be programmed in the ECU (there is no relay) by the dealer, but U.S. dealers do not do it.
Contrary to my previous experience with my former 14' K1300S, which was a simple plug&play of the OEM turn signals, you will need a resistor on the XR (in my case a 2016, but should be the same on all 16'-19' models) to get rid of the fast blinking and Canbus lamp failure warning on the dash. But, the resistor must be 39 Ohms, or it will not work.
I hear that starting with the 2021 model, the U.S. version of the XR (and probably most BMW top models) will finally come with LED turn signals, so eventually this topic will only be relevant to Gen 1 enthusiasts.

is it one resistor per led turn signal or one per side. so basically do I need two or four resistors?

Pretty sure it is one per LED turn signal. That is what I used to put OEM LEDs on the wife's GS.

Correct, you will need a resistor per turn signal.
