After staring the bike it stalled(still cold) I notice both turn signal indicator light were on as well as the oil light and nuetral light, but I when i hit the starter button nothing happened, i havent had this machine very long and still working the bugs out of it. I just seemed unusual to see both indicator lights on at the same time i double checked the hazard switch it was not on, I disconnected the battery and reconnected it with no change. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That is what I thought too, but i cycled the hazzard switch a few time and left it in the off position, and the indicator lights were still on but still not flashing and no ability to engage the starter. so I jumppered the two large terminals at the solenoid and it turned over just fine but would not start.

Are they on when you have the blinker switch on? Are all 4 bulbs (front and back 2)?

Work the start button at the same time that you jump the soleniod. It should start up.

Just the front two lights are on not the rears and niether the front or the indicators are flashing. The battery is fully charged and is very capable of turning the engine over. I wiggled some wires and tapped the JB and managed to get the lights to go off, started the engine and it quickly stalled the the problem reappeared. Thanks for everyones input on this matter.

I am actually having a similar issue although mine fires right up and runs both indicator lights are lit up on the dash,they do flash when the signal is on but stay lit evan after it is cancelled....im gonna work on it today but I am gonna guess that it is a bad or broken ground..I will definately post my findings and hopefully help you out

Sounds like ad grounds. Check all ground connections and clean them. If this does not fix the problem, then you may need a junction box. I run into this from time to time on cars.
:doh:

Ok will double check the grounds and maybe add a few major grounds to make sure, thanks for the input.

Thanks for all the well wishes it makes me feel better. I am actually doing better than i thought i would. i am up and around trying to remember i had a heart attack so good news there. My brother came over today and rattled my cage about it and we got to wiggling and tapping componants and seems to be related to the cdi module.Does anybody have one they would willing to part with I dont mind buying one from ebay but have a hard time trusting strangers with parts such as these.
