Hi,

I own a 2002 954r and I encountered an odd little problem.
I searched through the forum, but nothing did even came close to what I'm experiencing recently. Last weekend I washed my bike and I connected my battery to a charger. After a while I noticed that my right turn signal indicator flashes simultaneously with the HISS light. I tried to turn it off by using the two dashboard buttons as described in the manual, but no luck. I noticed that when the bike is turned of and the key not in place. The turn signal indicator stops when I push the turn signal switch to the right. But when I push the switch again , normally to stop the turn signals, the right turn signal indicator starts to flash again. I really have no idea what could have caused this. Bike looks and runs like new and I don't notice any other mechanical or electrical failures.

Any ideas?

Updated: (European HISS and relay mod for LED turn signals is a no go. Wanted to add in the titel in SOLVED too.

Re: Strange HISS problem

Just guessing here....
Sounds like a short or water contamination causing a short. Could be a bad ground someplace? Really, those are strange goings on and may require quite a bit of detective elimination.... Unless somebody else has seen this and fixed it.

Re: Strange HISS problem

Thanks rudyrov, but I solved the problem.
I did the relay mod for using LED turn signals, but it appears it's a bad combo with HISS. I'm glad I didn't cut the original wires, so I just put the original connectors in place and everything is okay. So guess I'm destined to use resistors after all.

The bike ran a while after the mod without problems, so it didn't occur to me that it could be related.

Glad you solved it, I tried LED turn signals for like 5 minutes and took them off. Have also tried them in my car with less than ideal results.
Really like them at home though! Have them all over the house!

Just get clear lenses for your originals, with orange bulbs, look better than oem, and no faff with resistors.
