11 posts in this topic

So I just bought this XR650l and was connecting the turn signals, they come on but they wont flash. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Sometimes when one of the flasher bulbs is burned out the flasher will discontinue.

Maybe the L does that.

All the bulbs must be exactly the same wattage and the flasher must be matched to those bulbs..or the bulbs matched to the wattage of the flasher.Make sure all the connections to the indicators are clean and a good fit...check the earths and make sure their all clean and attached solidly to their respective points ,,,thats all earths not just the flasher ones..Also try starting the bike..Sometimes they won't flash if the batteries a bit dodgy.The xtra power to it sometimes kicks them off.

You bring up some key points. The wattage's must all match. All grounds/earths must be clean. Any difference in resistance will cause some funky stuff to happen.

I figured it out..... I was looking at the wire diagram and realized that all turn signals were connected (duhhh), so in order for them to work correctly they all must be connect. I only had the front 2 connected at first. Thanks for the assistance guys.

If all your electrical wiring is good then it should work, u cant just have 1, 2, or 3 lights plugged in all 4 have to be plugged in.
