Replacing the Flasher? 1000RR

So in eager anticipation of my new LED turn signals I lobbed off the old turn signals yesterday. Today went for a short 150mile spin around the area to return home the last 10 miles or so without turn-signals. I knew out of the gate when I cut off the other lights the signal flash rate would be fast until the new LED's were installed but I didn't think it'd cause a problem. Well, i guess it did So, is this a user changeable part? I thought I read on here somewhere that it was integrated in the instrument panel. Is that the case?

thanks!
david

How did you remove them? "Lobbed off" sounds like you cut them, which makes me think you probably blew the fuse with an exposed contact.

Re: Replacing the Flasher? 1000RR

That's pretty much the method of choice I just snipped them but don't think they shorted. I also would have thought the bulb would be on a single fuse... the running light works but when I turn on the signal the appropriate bulb just goes dark rather than flash. I will check the fuses though. as soon as I find them

Re: Replacing the Flasher? 1000RR

good call Niner... I thought the bulb would be on just one fuse but it was indeed on two. And, I didn't check other lights (ie. brake light). Thanks for the idea! Problem solved.

Unplug the connectors in the tail section to keep this from happening. Once you get your LEDs in, solder the plugs to the new signals (after doing a system check) and cover with heat-shrink to provide a lasting, replaceable mod.
