Turn Signal stops blinking after warming up
My OEM relay went out on my '78 R100 and didnt' want to drop $90 for a new one from bmw so found on here that you can use the Tridon 550 old school 3 prong auto signal relay.
I got the 552 (package said it was an upgrade to the 550 and interchangeable).
I got a relay socket and spades and wired it up.
Signals worked just great.
After about 10 minutes of riding the signals would no longer flash.
I noticed that the green turn signal indicator was on.
This morning all good, they flashed just fine but exhibited the same behavior after about 5 minutes of riding.
Any ideas what could be going on?

Probably the relay.
If within warranty period then more probability that it is the relay.
Checks? For other possibilities
battery voltage (at start up and after the 10 minutes)

With mine it was the switch- dirty(perhaps corroded?) contacts; a spray of electrical cleaner seemed to help.
Opinions are like internet connections- everybody has one.
