  1. Only crappy when it rains

    Dominator / FMX
    My indicators pack up when it rains. The lights come on but don’t flash. Same whether left or right is selected. All bulbs working ok. I’m no electrician and wouldn’t know how to use a meter to trace a fault. But given that all four bulbs work, the problem occurs on both sides and the switch...

  3. Wonky winker no winky.

    Dominator / FMX
    Out on a cold, wet ride today. Nearing home my indicators started playing up - lights come on but don’t flash. Same whether indicating left or right. Hopefully just a bit of moisture in the flasher unit and will right itself when it dries out. Anyone here experienced something similar? Sent...
  4. flasher delay

    I've just bought my first transalp, an '02 XL650V, specifically for a trip around Europe which I'm sure it will take in it's stride. However when I indicate to turn left or right there is a delay of 5-10 seconds between using the switch and the indicator flashing. I've changed the relay but...

  6. Faulty flasher unit?

    Africa Twin
    Last week my bike's indicators suddenly started playing up, sometimes refusing to work and at other times working at double speed as if there's a blown bulb. The unit was replaced 15 months ago. I've checked and cleaned all the connections with no change. At times I can hear the unit "ticking"...
  7. Stupid question. Width of an RD03 at rear flashers.

    Africa Twin
    Can anyone check the width of their RD03 from outer end of one flasher to the outer end of the other. That's basically barely less than the gap between panniers. And while we are measuring stuff, how wide are the handle bars? TIA Lee

  10. Indicators take ages to activate

    Hiya. In this cold weather, my indicators are taking a long time to activate- I'll press the indicator switch, and sometimes it won't go at all, and sometimes it will take 10 to 20 seconds to start indicating. Once it's flashing it's fine, but it's just getting that first flash. It can be quite...

    Africa Twin
    Before I start taking things apart to check, what are the symptoms of the indicator flasher unit going?
