I was checking around on the 919.. Headlights check, brake lights check, taillight check, left turn signal good , right turn signal worked for 3 seconds then nothing. I try turning on the right signal from center position (off) and have nothing front and back. What's going on here. It worked fine recently and I havent done anything to the bike to have hit a wire. Stock wiring to eBay blinkers and fender eliminator tail light.

Have you ridden in the rain lately? The connections in the handlebar housing probably need to be cleaned. It's been happening to me lately on the left signal.

Happened to me before, cleaned the housing like Sckill said. Just flooded it with WD40 while working the switches. Should've taken it apart and gave it a good cleaning but if you need it on the pinch..
