History: Bike had been stripped down of all of it's body parts, e.g. fairing upper & lower, false tank, seats. Both throttle cables were replaced. All Electrical connections were cleaned and die electric grease lubricated. Instrument cluster was replaced as was the clock face plate. A new throttle control - right grip was installed and several cosmetic additions e.g. chrome etc.

Rebuild and everything works except the right turn signal. Both signals worked prior to this work being done.

The hazard, brake lights, high and low beam headlight, instrument cluster lighting and left turn signal work well.

I have switched the hazard and signal flash unit, they are interchangeable, same out come: Good left signal no right signal. I have removed and checked the actual turn signal light - the bulb is fine as is the socket.

At the turn signal flash unit I have three wires. Lt. Blue, Gray and White with a Green stripe. Putting a meter at this connection with ignition key on: Power at Lt. Blue and White with Green connector tabs. Nothing at the Gray. Turn signal switch for left turn and the Lt. Blue remains the same as does the Gray and the White with Green. Turn signal switch for right turn and the Gray and the White with Green strip remain unchanged however, the Lt. Blue shows no power with right turn signal switch engaged.

Where do I go and what testing should I do to proceed at solving this challenge?

While we wait for Trike Lady to show up: Could it be as simple as the turn signal switch itself needing a deep cleaning with contact cleaner or having a bum set of contacts?

Sounds to me like the switch needs a cleaning like Tatanka said. Radio Shack contact cleaner work well. Spray into the switch while try to work the switch. A blast of canned air helps get the gunk out afterward.

This time it happened to just be a buned out light bulb. I had two spare turn signal fixtures both had burned out bulbs. :)

My response yesterday was incorrect. The original turn signal challenge did turn out to be the switch which was cleaned and now works great. My response yesterday should have been directed to the left running light not working all of a sudden. It was a simple bulb burn out.

Glad that's straighten out. Had me scratching trying to figure out how the Hazards were all working and the bulb was burned out ???????:confused:

All's well that ends well.
