If the meter reads low or high in both directions,
the rectifier is defective and must be replaced.
A. Relay Diode
elf the relay and the diode check good, turn the
meter to the 20V DC range, connect the
lead to the brown lead that was disconnected from
the relay, and connect the - meter lead to the
orange lead
With the ignition switch on and with
the hazard switch
first switch the turn signal
switch to the R and then to the L position. The
meter should register battery voltage at either posi-
If it does not, the fuse
ignition switch, or
wiring is at fault. If battery voltage is read on the
meter but the turn signals still will not work when
the relay is reconnected, then recheck all wiring
(2}Both right or both left turn signals come on and stay
on or flash too slowly:
-Check that battery voltage is not low.
-Check that all wiring connections are good
-Check that the turn signal bulbs and indicator bulb
are of the correct
elf all of the above check good
replace the relay.
(3}A single light on one side comes on and stays on:
eEither the light that does not come on is burned out
or of incorrect wattage, or the wiring is broken or
improperly connected
(4}Neither light on one side comes on:
eUnless both lights for that side are burned
trouble is with the turn signal switch
(5}Flashing rate is too fast:
elf this occurs on both the right and left sides, check
that the battery is not being overcharged (indicating
a defective regulator/rectifier)
If the alternator
and the battery voltage are normal
replace the turn
signal relay.
elf this occurs on only one
one or both of the
turn signal bulbs are of too high a
Automatic Turn Signal Cancelling System
When the turn signal selector switch is in the on
(automatic) position, a solenoid turns off the turn signal
after it has been on for 4 seconds, plus the time that
the motorcycle has traveled an additional 50 meters.
The cancelling system consists of the battery (power
source), turn signal control unit, distance sensor, sole-
and turn signal switch.
When the turn signal
switch is pushed to the left or right, the turn signals
start flashing and the control unit starts counting off
At the end of this time, the control unit
starts calculating distance travelled using pulses from
the distance sensor at the rear of the
When the motorcycle has traveled 50 meters, the control
unit operates the solenoid, which returns the turn
signal switch to the off
If the turn signal cancelling system does not function
properly, first check all the wi ring connections carefully
and then inspect the distance sensor and turn signal
switch/solenoid assembly. If all these are good, replace
the turn signal control unit.
Distance sensor inspection
eOpen the headl igh t housing, disconnect the red lead
and light green lead from the sensor, and remove the
cable lowe
end from the speedomete
gear housing using pliers.
eConnect an ohmmete
across to the sensor leads, and
check continuity as follows. Turning the speedometer
inner cable slowly count how many times the sensor
shows continuity
The ohmmeter should show conti-
nuity and then open four times
per revolution.
If it
does not, replace the
A_ Light Green Lead
B. Red Lead
C. Turn the speedometer inner cable.
Turn signal and selector switch inspection
First remove the fuel tank, and unplug the 9-pin,
6-pin, and 3-pin connectors from the left switch housing,
check the turn signal switch and selector switch connec-
tions according to Table K 19 and K20. If the switch has
an open circuit or a short, it can be disassembled for
