Hey guys, my right turn signal is stuck on. it will cancel out when i turn on the left one and then wont work any more. and when i shut off the bike and restart it the blinker is on.

Ive checked all the fuses and bulbs. i've got it down to the blinker switch or the relay.

My question is what would be more likely?
The bike is 2005 xl1200r.

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Sounds like handle bar switch or connection. May have some dirt or corrosion in there. My 2 cents.

If the relay is anything like an automotive one. They either work or do not work. No in between.

Agree with SoftailBilly. The switch, housing area.

Turn signal module. I don't know your bike, or where it is on it. But that would be my guess.

I'm thinking pinched wires under the front master cylinder clamp. Especially if the bike has custom grips installed.

For the sake of Big Joesepy`s wallet, I`m hoping switch.

But with the symptoms described.......
Electron leaks are a PIA. No drips on floor :what?

yep. Shaking do`t fix it either. :D
When we ran out of tests on vehicle for electron problems. It was sanctioned test by engineering called the "Wiggle Test" on the wires. Actually worked a few times. :what?:thumbsup

That's what the MoCo calls the electrical diagnostics, "Wiggle Tests" In the electrical service manuals.
I've been doing "Wiggle Tests" on Harleys for years !!!
