    No indicators / Turn signals

    May I pls ask for some help....

    Was on a ride out today....All great...everything working great..

    Then I had no indicators.....No flashing light either on dash.
    When my Datatool alarm kicks in all 4 indicators flash so there fine...

    What’s the best way to trouble shoot?

    Ive checked all the fuses (I think its the ACC one) but all fine)

    If its the relay would the dash light still work or not?

    Happy to get another relay but wondered if there was common issues?

    Sorry to be a pain and thank you...

    Hello

    Sorry its a 2007 XB12s.

    I found the relay at the front. 3 pin.

    If this is blown would it stop the green light on the dash working?

    Where is the ground cable connect to?

    WIll check.

    Sorry for all the questions..

    Hello

    The earths on the XB12s according to the manual are in the rear. There all fine. I believe there shared as well. Everything else working fine. I’m hoping it’s the flasher..

    Hello

    It was the Flasher unit!!

    Bought another one from Amazon. Just a cheap unit.

    All good.

    My local HD Dealer confirmed there are no earths on the front of a XB12s

    Mine has them under the fly screen and under the seat as well.

    Your HD dealer is talking out of turn... Lunatic is the Buell-whisperer, you should listen to him when he's helping you, instead of being snarky.

    Morning.

    No snarkyness intended. Apologies if you felt I was.

    I’ve ripped the front end apart. There isn’t one earth there. The Buell manual also backs this up and notes the earths are at the rear. Literally lights off dials out. Light Frame off etc.

    Maybe uk versions or a model revision for 2007?

    No clue but hopefully this thread will help anyone else with the issue.

    The fuse is a 10amp ac one.

    The flasher can be tested with a battery and a light.
    Mine had failed
    I bought a cheap one with timing adjustment for £7 from Amazon.
    However the live and earth on the new one were the other way round.
    Quick change and all perfect again

    Attachment shows schematic.

    Well, my bad. You're right and we're wrong. Glad us dumbasses were able to answer your question and help you change a $2 flasher that you couldn't figure out yourself.
