Turn signal issue.

See if you can figure this one out.

My turn signals work fine when I start out and after an hour ride.

When I I go to end my ride and get gas, they don't work.

When I pull into the garage, they don't work.

After the bike cools off, they work fine...

Suggestions?

You wash your bike...as in using the hose.

They do not light up at all or just don't blink? If the latter it may be the flasher.

That's damn strange, I would still try changing the flasher. Its the only thing in the electrical chain that could act up, the rest is just hard wiring and a switch.

I 2nd the flasher relay if you're using aftermarket LED tail lights. Mine went wonky and it was the relay. A buddy's relay also just gave up the ghost even though it had very little use.

At least it's a cheap fix!

2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, JT (-1/+0), EK, Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, heated grips, shorty levers, MotoDynamic signals & relay, plasti-dipped and vinyl wrapped (all green to black), Bestem carbon, PUIG Pro sliders, solo cowl, modded sprocket cover, TST fender elim. w/LEDs. 45,000km+ and going strong!
