Hi,

Mine failed in the same way on my 2010R, my mechanic told me he has seen a lot fail. The symptom on mine was that the indicators would come on constant (no flashing) when the ignition was off...

So they can build a poxy 390 single "Adventure" but not a decent mid sized single or twin. Maybe the parallel twin 790/800 may make its way into an Adventurised bike?
