Question Turn Signals

Folks,

As you can tell, I am in the middle of doing a few things to the bike right now. (In the Marines, been away for a while, now I'm back)
I had a set of LP flush mounted turn signals (black tint); I cut the fairings, rewired the lights and put them in. Now, two weeks later the damn things are melting!!! What the F!

Stop using your blinkers so much! Sorry never heard that before.

WHOA

either you wired them up backwards, or they just can not take the heat. What do you mean melting? Inside?

I'm going to guess that your blinker filament (brighter) is on all the time, and your running light filament (dimmer) is hooked up to the blinker wire. Just a guess, though.

I bought some replacement lights, but they are two wire instead of three. I know that one of them is the running light, butI cannot figure out which one. I have wired them every way that I can think of....

If my memory serves me correctly, there are three wires. Well, I know that for sure, but anyway. One is black (ground). One is solid (either blue or green), and the other is solid w/ brown dashes on it. I'm quite sure the one w/ dashes is the running light. So, connect grounds and the other light from the marker to the solid one.

I hope that works.

I got the lights working, but now everything else in the LCD console is gone. Tach, speedo, everything. The only thing that works there now is the turn signals. The only way that I was able to get the signals to work was to connect the runing light wire (green w/brown dashes) to the ground along with the ground from the light to the bike. sum up: the pos is connected to the pos from the bike and the ground from the light is connected to the running light and the ground from the bike....and the console is dead. HELP!

Same thing happened to my buddy's 929 last weekend. You blew a fuse. Don't worry about it. Jus get another one. He lost everything on his dash. If things don't work the way they should after you replace the fuse, check the wiring inside the marker. His came from LP all screwed up.

Did he have the running light capped? or taped?
