Turn signal problem.

My turn signals are taking an eternity to come on after I hit the switch on the handlebars, usually about 3-4 seconds, which is bloody dangerous. Folks on Gaijin Riders have suggested that it might be a relay getting old, or even that the battery water level might be low. I’ve orders a relay and it should be here over the next couple of days or so. I’ll install that and hopefully it will sort the problem.

    Damien, hi there!

    Of course always following your blog (especially because I am too darned busy to work on mine).

    Concerning the turn signals – yes, everything you were told is (might be) right. In addition, just a thought – why not use some contact spray on all switches and so on. That’s what I do on a more or less regular base.

  2. I’ll do that Klaus. First of all though, I’ll have to get a good look under the fairing to see what is there. I have the Haynes manual which has good diagrams, so that should be a good help. Thanks for the advice.

  3. Bleh! I thought my wife had ordered the part over the phone, but she hadn’t. They wanted to see the frame number for themselves before ordering the part, so I had to ride over tonight to order it myself. It’ll arrive in the 3rd. Meanwhile, the turn signals are now taking almost 5 seconds to come on. The sooner I sort this problem the better.
