No turn Signals

Turn signals stop working mid-ride this morning. (40 degrees....brrrr)
Headlight (Hi & Lo beam) works....Hi beam indicator works
Tail light works
Removed seat....Checked all connections....good
Opened headlight....Checked all connections....good
Checked fuses....good
Bike never in rain....garage kept.
Running out of ideas.
Anyone aware of in-line fuse for signals?

Any other suggestions are welcome

A broken wire / connection @ the switch (possibly ground), in a inline connector @ the frame neck or connection @ the Blinker Stadt.

hope this helps

EP34 flasher relay...get the electronic one or "variable load type" so that if you decide to eventually go to LED you are all set.

Would be helpful if you tell us what year your bike is. Older ones had the self canceling signals ... which sometimes screw up too.

yes!!
better late than never

For those of you who are contemplating LED blinkers (see my signature), the EP34 is a plug and play replacement for our flasher relay. If you find one make sure it is ELECTRONIC and says VARIABLE LOAD type or similar to ensure it works for lower current draw lighting such as LED's.
