Default Strange gremlin. Engine/turn signals.

Wondering if anyone can help.

I have a strange gremlin I'm trying to eliminate.

Two problems. Seems to be related somehow.

1. Turn signals don't blink. If key is on and ignition is off turn signals operate normally.

1a. If I turn on ignition turn signals either work normally or don't work at all. It's dependent on the wheel or some sensor that determines the location of the wheel cause if I inch it forward or backwards the lights stop working.

2. If I start bike it runs for about 1 second then engine light starts to glow and it dies out.

2a. If I start bike and when in neutral walk forwards or backwards before the engine light comes on it will stutter and glow engine light but light goes off then work fine. It will never die out again unless I key off and on again. Then same problem as above.

Bike was laying in its side for a time sert install but that was like 6 months ago. This just happened one week ago.


Thanks!

Sorry forgot to add. If I start bike and roll forwards or backwards to get past the engine stutter point. The bike runs fine but if I go to use turn signals. It has a long .75 blink and then turns off. Only way to use them is to hold down the turn signals. I don't get a standard blink. I just get .75 sec on .75 sec off flashing.

I'd start by thoroughly cleaning all your battery connections including earths.
Ensure your battery is in good order .
Thats the starting point for any electrical gremlins.
Good Luck.

did you add LED's or have you change anything with the wiring.

No LEDs. It's completely stock. I thought it was a tilt sensor issue being that the bike was gently laid on its side 6 months ago for a time sert installed. I'm thinking its something to do with the sensing of where the wheel is because it reacts to movement of the wheel. Or pulley or something connected to the movement of the wheel.

I'll try to post up a video on YouTube explaining what's going on with my bike to give you guys a better visual when I get my next break in about an hour and a half.

wheels and pulley have nothing to do with it.
don't think your bike is new enough for a tilt sensor.

write Rylan at the vis shop and ask him. Hes a good guy and it might take a couple days but he will get back to you

Thanks visionjohnny. I'll shoot him an email. For anyone else interested in seeing my problem. I made a simple YouTube video explaining my situation. My engine decided to play nicely and not fart out this time.
