Rear Indicators Playing Up

Afternoon Gents

Got a prob with the rear indicators, they work sometimes correctly and sometimes nothing, the front just blinks fast when the back ones don't work.

I have pulled and cleaned both bulbs and connections, checked the wires and unplugged and repluggued everything under the seat and still have this issue.

I am stumped now, anyone else had this issue and if so do you have a magic fix...bad earth or something?

Cheers Andi

$200 and $300 for bars, that's crazy talk.

Get some ProTaper CR HI for gods sake.

The Suzuki /KTM bend is pretty straight as well.

Ok, will pull em to bit again, I am suspicious it is further up the line cos both back ones play up.

Maybe with all the vibs the wires have parted, will check it out tomorrow.

Cheers man.

When my blinkers stopped working all connecters were fine so I ended up adding a separate ground for the rear lights . Been fine for the last 10,000 km.

I got tired of mine looking like that inside and used a wrap of scotch 88 around where the lens meets the body, too much crap gets in the drain hole.

Well I got a stonking head cold which has really thrown my dancing shoes in the corner, in bed shivering then hot (no nothing to do with Halle Berrie either ) .... feel like an old man.

Shifted Maya to a new (and better) hostel hopefully tomorrow will improve so I can take a look at her.

Cheers gents

Afternoon gents

Well after pulling the indicator lens again and shuffling wires, pulling them off and pushing them on the problem is still there.

Sometime they go ok, sometimes they go fast, sometime on a complete holiday.

With my limited electrical unexpertise it would seem like an earthing fault.

There are no holes in the plastic cause all the smoke is still inside the wires.

Might look at an extra earth wire maybe, good ideas?

You got me. I guess those special reading classes did me little to no good.

I think it is your relay, mine did exactly that, then failed completely
It's a cheap part, so worth trying :)
