Default xct - fried turn signal, stopped working

So the past couple days Bryman and I have been riding around The Dragon/other NC roads. The heat here has been in the upper 80's and today was 90 degrees! I mention this since I do not know if it contributed to the problem.

Well, the right turn signal started to flake out (worked proper, then would turn off automatically) and today, after a long day of riding, it stopped flashing all together (right signals only). The four way flashers only flash the left side as well.

I called my dealer from my Chicago area (we start our journey back to Chi-town tomorrow) and he thinks the module under the right accessory panel might be fried. So I'll report back next Saturday when I take it to the shop for repair. The bike is new as of 2/29/12 and has about 2300 miles on it when this happened.

Anyone else on the XR/XC/XCT have something similar happen?

Are the front signals operating OK? If not, it could be in the cancelling device or the flasher relay under the right side cover. Just a thought. Good luck with it and let us know what it was when you find out.

It is a good chance the relay is the cause since the four way flashers only operate the left side. Neither the front right or rear work. I'll let you know. Sort of has wondering though considering the right side is where much of the heat piles up if the relay is the offending part.

That sucks! I have 7300 on my 12 XCT and was on the interstate in 90 plus degree temp for 13 hours straight and almost 800 miles 2 days ago and all systems are still a go.

My left front turn signal started working off and on sometimes no lights and sometimes just a couple of lights (small leds within the signal itself) when it didn't work at all I could tell by the flasher on my dashboard. I switched the wires from left to right and it is the signal light itself.Could be dangerous when only one led is working because it blinks normal on dash but other drivers can't see it.The good news is it is covered under warrentee. Bad news is nobody has these things in stock so your stuck riding like this untill they come in and be replaced by your dealer or yourself if your handy with a wrench because the light is a sealed unit.Great signal lights when they work but I don't like the idea they can't be fixed out on the road from auto parts store. Mine stopped working at about 10,000 miles.

Pull your relay and stop at a auto store or a metric bike shop and see if they have one.
Of coarse you check to see your battery cable are tight

Yeah, I have an appt at my dealer this Saturday first thing. He says he has some XCT's on the floor and will pull any parts he needs from them. That is good news for me so it should be fixed.

Once I find out what the cause is, I'll post back.

Oh, the intermittent flashing/not flashing started the day before...then they died

No worries...

My left rear LED turn signal was fried after a 100 miles when I bought mine last October. I had it replaced and have had no problems since.

Problem fixed

It was the turn signal relay (little black box under right panel). The hardest part about fixing it the tech said was that it was riveted on (plastic rivet), so he had to cut it off. Simple fix.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I seem to be having a similar issue. My right rear signal began to flake out. I noticed this because the dash indicator did not work. It would stop working, then when I'd shut the bike of and back on, it would work for a little then stop again. Then the front right stopped working as well. Both right side flashers do not work at all, but the left ones work fine. This is true for both turn signals and hazard lights. Itrider - is this the same issue you had that turned out to be the relay? I'm going to try all of the simple stuff first - negative battery terminal, look for plugs, etc., first, but I'd like to know where to go if that doesn't help. As always, thanks for your time.
