I have learned some stuff over the years (most of all not to change a lot of stuff on your bike unless you are making it a track bike).
I managed to do quite a bit on my own or with minimal help. Rear shock, pegs, and basic maintenance but I am damn flustered on 2 simple things.
I tried to integrate my turn signals into my tail light. In the past I satrted leaning towards almost squid like things to the bike but saw the light. Hell, I track the custom painted beast (Paint job was dirt cheap through family BTW).
Anyway, I could never get it to work right so I have had no signals forever. Well, I bought some new rear signals. My front signals are integrated into the mirrors. Angela and I try and hook them up tonight and no worky. We analyze..hey..my electrical engineering buddies who helped left 1 wire nhooked on each. Hook up both wires on the left and now I have integrated signal. (Left only hooked up and right still as before.
Strip add fastner and plug in right...nada...nothing...no worky left or right or front now. WTF!!! Totally lost and appreciate any help. If anyone was remotely close it would be a case, pizza and a place to crash for the help.
What do I need to do besides try normal front signals again with the rear? I do like the integrated look on my bike.
Please, please help. I can't take it anymore!!
To add insult...I have wanted to try GP shift. Simple flip on a Suzuki according to evryone on earth. I try flipping the bolt (knuckle) in front of the peg connecting the rod. No luck. Still moves the same way. Shouldn't it move different?
I again appreciate any help (especially photos!!). What am I missing? I feel like a moron. Every time I think I am getting to know stuff something hits me to make me feel stupid. I learned to tweek suspension, swap tires and other stuff but I can't get signals to work or do a supposedly 5 minute mod.
Sorry for the book. Current TLR moron.
BTW, I came here cause you guys will not only add more ridicule but also help.
