Question about 2001 Cagiva Planet
I have checked all bulbs and they work left turn flashes ok but right turn just stays on. please help...There's a short-circuit in the indicator circuit. I've had this one before! The insulation on one of the wires has worn away so when you put current through the indicator circuit it shorts out puts a surge through the system, and the main fuse blows to protect the other electrics! Generally wire insulation wears fastest under the gas tank. Lift the tank and you'll see a bundle of wires running up the center of the frame under the tank. Have a really good look at these wires to see if any are worn (if you can see just a tiny bit of metal, or even if the insulation is just thin, that's probably your problem. Tiny and easy to fix with electrical tape - but can be hard to find!). You may have to look at each wire in that bundle individually - if there's no obvious short on the outside, it could be shorting against another wire on the inside. If there's no problem here, check the rest of the indicator wires all over the bike for good insulation. Good luck. It can be quick to find, or it can take all day. But once found just wrap it with electrical tape, problem solved and you'll feel much better.... Incidentally, if the fuse is blowing, check that the regulator and the battery are still OK. Sometimes the regulator is damaged and the battery overcharges (this can happen weeks or months later).,,,
