Blinker Running Lights

Do the blinkers usually stay on for running lights? I just noticed mine stay on, until I hit the blinker switch. Did a previous owner do a mod to these?

I guess someone must have modded mine. They stay one the same as the fronts. Unfortunately I got a burr up my butt to use the helmet lock today. The older rubber on the blinker on the back cracked from pulling the saddle bag up and down. I hope it does not get a short in it.

The rubber cracks easily. Sometimes the signal stalks start to sag and get droopy. One solution is to pull apart a blue papermate ballpoint pen (fatter bic ones do not work). It fits the interior hole of the signal mounts perfectly and stiffens them up considerably. You just cut the pen down to size (remove ink first), thread the wires through the pen shaft, and slide the shaft up into the signal. Works like a charm.

Hmm. Given: "shaft, sag, droopy, and stiffen," I'm waiting for a beavis and butthead comment.

Don't forget "rubber cracks easily" lol.

I might let it go for a little while and get the relocation brackets and be done with it all together. Thanks for the pen tip, if I don't do the bracket, then I will definitely do that.
