Hi Gents,

So in preparation for the oncoming thaw I started to give my bike a check over and noted the front/right indicator is not working. I know there have been a few threads on dodgy indicators but before I get into it too far I thought I had better see if the bulb is out.

So can anyone tell me how to get into the thing?

Cheerio,

Roy

I have a box of new front indicators here! If it’s the indicator, I can give you one for the price of the shipping. I would guess it’s about $20 shipping to Colorado

@Jaymz, any chance you have any extra clamp parts for the front indicators? I cracked one of mine when I was removing it to put my Rage360 indicators on, so at some point I'll need to get a replacement.

Hi Jay,

Thanks mate that's grand. If it's not simple like the bulb I will for sure take you up on it, very generous indeed.

If someone can tell me how to get into it to check the bulb that would be grand?

Cheerio,

Roy

I don't believe you can take the unit apart, I think it's a sealed unit. I had the same issue with my front left. Anyway's took it back to the dealer they said grit/dirt in connection. This was pretty much from day 1 of ownership. Once the dealer cleaned out connection has never caused me any grief.

It’s this whole can/bus system, you may or may not recall I had zero turn signals working and they determined a faulty speedometer as wiring goes through this unit back to écu.

I much preferred the simplicity of past lighting electrics.

I fear this could become an occurring issue with having to have dealership visits more often. Planned maintenance

Your problem may be something as simple as a loose connection though, do you recall the very last thing you worked on, go there.

You cannot take the units apart.

The rear indicators do not have much slack in the wiring so the connections aren't very good. Pull some slack in the wires and reconnect. Your turn signals will probably work. Mine did.

Thanks Gents,

Sealed unitis on indicators! Yes I too long for the old days. I'm no mechanic or electrician but like to know I can change a bulb if needed.:crying:

I moved my speedo when fitting the windshield so I will give that a look later on.

Always appreciate the help here chaps.

Cheerio,

Roy
