    Hi,

    Sorry if this has been asked before, I've searched the forum but can't seem to find an answer.

    My bike has been converted to LED indicators before I bought it and everything worked fine until a few months ago. All of a sudden my indicators have stopped flashing once my bike gets warm and I can't work out why . At first I thought it was because of the wet weather and maybe water was getting into the flasher relay but I've coated it in WD-40 and it's still doing it.

    Any help would really be appreciated thanks.

    id say your flasher relay is sticking once it gets warm

    try moving the relay away from the engine see if it helps or replace the relay
    make sure the connections are good
    I had a few issues after 1 connection started to break away

    Also have a look at which flasher relay is fitted, some of the "aftermarket LED flasher relays" can be rather erratic & troublesome .

    Think I may have cracked it! The relay was hanging free and resting on the engine, I've repositioned it away from the heat and it seems to have worked, for now at least

    Worst case is buying a new one and they're cheap as chips.
