919 Blinkers

so I replaced my damaged two front and one rear t/s on my '03 919 - the replacements were bought off of ebay. The fronts have the three leads and the rear has two. I had to remove rear cowl to replace the rear and use solderless connectors to fit to reuse the terminal block in the rear. The front use bullet connectors, which were fine until the grounding ones which connect in tandem to one green lead - that connector snapped - its cheesey anyway and got expanded too much and snapped. I rigged it back together (ground up front), but blinkers don't work. The left worked for a couple of quick blinks one time only. I figured the ground to be no good up front, but reconnected it using jumper wires, to no avail, I checked the rear again and all is good there.

Question: does the bike need to be running for the blinkers to work? Is the flasher some sort of capacitor that needs charging? New Battery installed, bike not run in 8 months, putting back together after a laydown.

blinkers should work if ign is ON, running engine or not. Flasher is just a relay, if power is on, it should be flashing.

Does the marker portion of front blinkers work with IGN ON?

Bike does not have to be running, but when putting LED's on, if you're not using an inline resistor, it will act wonky. Especially the more indicators you swap to LED. The load on the flasher relay is not consistent.

Best thing to do is get one of these:

Custom LED Electronic LED Flasher Blinker Relay - Plug And Play

good point. What T/S did you get? Stock again or something else?

if stock, you screwed up your wiring somehow or fried something while wiring it.
Check fuses, check relay, check your wiring again.

its really hard to screw up the wiring like colors to like colors - there is only one fuse for the t/s and it is good - everything else electrically works - FSM indicates wiring when jumping two terminals in relay connector with relay off.

Todd, I put 2 fronts on my rear. I hooked up regular wires as on the oem, and tied the 3rd wire to a hot wire (one to tail light and one to the tag light, so as to not over load the system. I have running lights on both ends so as to be SEEN at night! Been this way for at least 10,000 miles. If Cops ever say any thing about yellow on rear, I'll dye the lens red.
