Tinkering with my bike tonight and noticed that the indicators i fitted on the front the right hand side is flashing extra fast. Changed them over and it is still doing it. They are not LED and all connections look good so don't know why this is happening. Any ideas ?.

Bulb size is correct and all indicators are working. Will check connections again tonight. Used the original push in connectors. Maybe will change this for a bullet connection and see if this makes any difference.

I had similar symptoms a while back.  It turned out to be a dirty connector to the rear loom under the seat

Cheers Ian. Will have a look at the weekend and see if that cures it.

Tried your suggestion Ian but all seems ok there. Booked it in at local shop to get it checked out next weekend as away on my hols so I don't miss out on riding time.

It'll turn out to be a bad earth somewhere most likely. Have a great holiday and hopefully it'll all be fixed when you get back.

I've no idea Stone I'm dog shit with electrics  :what1: , it's something to do with reducing the current to slow down the flash rate I think? There's loads of them on eBay cheap as chips, but I'm not sure which ones are suitable for your indicators, I'm sure someone with electrical knowledge will chip in.

When I was a lad flashers worked on a bimetallic strip priciple...current flows through it..heats it up and it bends and opens the circuit, current stops..it cools down and bends back and closes the cct. and so it goes on.
My understanding is that LED's dont draw enough current to operate the flasher...so add a resistor in parallel with the LED to provide another route for current and hey presto the flasher works !

Afraid I dont know what size resistor (measued in OHMS ) is needed but it has to be the right resistance to draw the correct current.

Yes, That's exactly what I thought! I think?  fast flashing indicator 852880
