Indicators on constant since battery was replaced

Hope you can help :)
The battery on my zzr1100 went dead during the week (it is also fitted with a Laserline 860 alarm), i replaced it and the alarm works fine, can be armed and disarmed and the engine starts but the indicator lights are constantly on and will not switch off (I have disconnected the battery so it doesn't waste the new battery). What can i do to fix this problem?
many thanks

Well its not the flasher unit, its the alarm itself, i will have to get it to a garage and get the alarm removed.
thank you for your advice

Hi again,

Appreciate the quick postback.

Let's try process of elimination:

  • could not be the fuse marked TURN 10 A, there is power to the signal/turn lights;
  • could not be the turn switched, it will be either one but not both at the same time;
  • but it could be the flasher relay (flasher can or indicator relay). In some Kawasakis, they would be right beside the starter relay. And since you replaced the battery, which is right next to it, possibly dislodged/disconnected the connector at the bottom. Might as well check the ground wires.
  • Alternately, it could be any of the connectors slightly pulled/disconnected within the same area.
Should this not address the issue or if the flasher relay be not there would appreciate updates (for any developments or even the lack thereof).

its the lights on the bike, instead of being able to switch the left or right indicator on so they are flashing, both are on constantly.

All turn signals not working on Kawasaki zzr1100, all other lights work. Bulbs are fine.

This could be the turn signal switch or the indicator relay. I replaced 2 relays in 6 months ,on my D1,before I bought a genuine Kawasaki one which gave me no further problems.

I was replacing my rear blinkers , before i put electrical tape on them i tested them and all was well, added the tape tried again and lo and behold everything went dead..checked battery and it is good,...

Hi,,remove the tape and check the connections,,when you say "everthing went dead i assume you mean all lights ect,,,check your fuse box,,,more than likely the indicator wiring has shorted and blown a fuse.

What is the correct type of fuel to use on a 1995 Kawasaki ZZR1100 Leaded or unleaded?

Leaded fuel hasn't been available in the US for about 15 years or more. Just make sure to use an octane rating high enough to prevent 'pinging' that occurs during acceleration. Hope this helps!

How do i get a 180 tyre to fit my zx10 1989

you need zzr1100/d rear wheel and all spacers,get whole wheel if poss. you also need rear shock from d or c zzr1100. this will bring bike back to ride hight. play with spacers and away you go, makes it little bit nippy.

My indicators wont work and the battery keeps going dead

Check the wires to the indicators & switch ,you may have a short .which is draining the power out of the battery. When you get your bike running ,put a D/C voltage tester agross the battery terminal .At 1000 revs you shoukld have 13.5 volts .Rev up to 3000 and it should stay constant .if you are not getting 13.5 volts your regulator may be a fault .

Battery keeps loosing charge- kymco cruiser 125, 2005

I had this exact same problem on a hipster 125, it was a faulty regulator module ( mounted under the seat) I also found a short circuit (somewhere) in the wiring loom between the regulator output and the chassis (probably what killed the regulator in the first place!) I cut and replaced the entire wire to save removing most of the loom and after testing reg to ensure it was dead i fitted a new one (about £60) bike charges and runs like a dream now even with fully lights approx 80% of the time. good luck

sounds like you have got dead cells in your battery , they wont hold a charge , the loud click was probably the cells in the battery arking and killing the cells off ,id fit a new battery and all should be well.

Ducati 620s - Won't Start - Dead

The battery has died over the winter. Indicators staying on is a sure fire signal of low battery charge.

The battery may have enough amperage to get the headlight and the horn working, but the indicator relays take a bit more.

New battery I'm afraid.
