Hi again now that we know that the other three work we can carry on,
fist check remove bulb from faulty indicator and check bulb by swapping with one that does work
2/ check that you have a supply to your centr contact on the bulb holder, if not trace yor feed cable backwards you may find a break or a diconnected connector,if you have a supply to your bulb holder then the problem must be in your earth,this can be checked by fitting your bulb .select the faulty indicator nd with a piece of wire bared at both ends touch one end to bulb holder,the other to enging ore known good earth ,and you should ba flashing,if so ,then your problem will be solved by simply working out where the bulb holder has lost its route to earth
hope this is of assistance any further dont hesitate

Have changed indicator units to smaller ones with bulbs 12v 10w and they dont flash and we cannot locate flasher unit to change - how do we fix problem without putting old indicators back on


By changing the bulbs, you have changed the load resistance on the flasher unit. You Fat Boy does not use a flasher like a car does. It has an electronic turn signal canceller on it, a "black box". To solve your problems, you need a "load equalizer" installed in the wiring harness of your bike. There are several types of units on the market. Badlands makes a good one.

Ride Safe.

Where is the flasher unit on a 1995 fat boy


Your Fat Boy does not have a conventional flasher unit like on the older cars and bikes. It has a turn signal cancelling unit on it that is a flat looking box about 1/2"thick by about 1" wide and about three inches long. On the Fat Boy, I THINK it's located on the frame between the tanks. It has one large plug on it with a lot of wires going into it.

What is the unit doing or not doing. These units are pretty dependable and usually don't give any trouble. But, they are expensive and you don't want to buy one unless you need one. I have a trouble shooting guide that I'll send you. It's far too much typing to type in here, four full pages with pictures. Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send it to you.

Good Luck
