    Are you replacing the entire indicators or just the bulbs?

All connections to your signal circuitry are in the Headlamp Bowl Yes you will need to remove it, it isn't a massive job, look for the retaining screws usually located at the base of the headlamp bezel.

Left side indicators not flashing and head light not working

Hi Anonymous, before diagnosing any turn signal issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

1994 fatboy brake light staying on

Hi Anonymous, your front brake lite switch button is probably not getting pushed back into the off position. Remove your right handelbar switch housing and push the plastic button in and out with your finger to see if the light goes off and on. If not disconnect the wires to your rear brake lite switch and check the front switch button again. If the button works then reinstall the switch housing and push it towards the master cylinder hard and hold it with one hand and retighten the screws with the other. If you hook up rear brake lite switch wires and the brake lite comes on replace the switch. For a wiring diagram for your turn signals go to: Good luck

Brake & turn signal lights

  • If neither brake light works, go here.
  • Check all the connections to the signal switch and trailer relay.
  • Turn on the parking lights. Make sure that each light is equally bright (side-to-side). The signal filament is brighter than the parking light filament, so if one light is "extra" bright the bulb may be inserted 180 degrees out in the socket, or the contact plate in the light may be reversed.

    To reverse the contact plate for the front parking light with staggered pin bulbs:

    Remove the lense and the bulb
    Pull back the boot as far as possible. Some boots require that you remove the parking light completely.
    Push the wires into the back of the light housing.
    Turn the contact plate 180 degrees and engage the tangs as you pull the wires out.

    To reverse the contact plate for the rear round parking lights with staggered pin bulbs (You can simply reverse the leads on the rear rectangular lights):
    Remove the lense and the bulb
    Push the wires into the back of the light housing.
    Turn the contact plate 180 degrees and engage the tangs as you pull the wires out.
  • If you don't have brake and signal lights on one side, disconnect the red and yellow (or green) wires from the light. With the parking light switch on, touch the red wire to each connection on the light. One connection should be bright, the other less bright. Connect the red wire to the dimmer connection and the other wire to the brighter connection. More possibilities here.
  • Use only a Signal Stat brand flasher, #180 (it comes with the kit). Some others don't consistently indicate flashing on the dashboard, or may not flash at all.

When pulling the front brake on the rear brake light stays off...if i pull the front brake the light comes on...

switch on the front brake lever is faulty or wiring fault to it, to check this disconnect the wires on the switch(normally spade connectors) using a paper clip join the two wires together and check to see if brake light comes on, if so replace the switch, if not then you need to check for power on the wires if no power on either wire you need to look for a broken wire or blown fuse i would doubt it if it is a fuse unless other things are not working on the bike.

05 Suzuki C90T turn signal replacement

The turn signal indicators are attatched by a M6 screw underneath, they do not screw in like most bikes.

Both the rear and front indicators are mounted on a nice chrome fitting that can easily be removed. The rear one is bolted through the fender, access the bolts from inside the guard. The front ones are mounted with screws underneath the chrome mounting. Once you remove the mounting the wiring can be easily unplugged and indicators replaced.

My bike fell over the other day and broke the left front signal light. How do I change that light? My bike is a 2008 Suzuki Boulevard c90t.

By carefully studying the lighting system on my bike I was able to determine how to remove the light bar by removing two alan bolts on the underside of the light bar and in between the forks. Once the light bar was removed I was able to gain access to the philips screw which holds the signal light on the bar. After removing that screw I traced the wiring back to the head light where I noticed that the head light itself needed to be removed in order to gain access to the wiring inside the headlight assembly. Once inside I was able to unplug the two wires which lead to the signal light and then pull them through the light bar and remove the broken signal light. Replacing the new signal light was simply a matter of reversing the process. Thanks for getting back to me though. By taking the time to study the situation, I learned more about my bike.
