yesterday we rode with another couple and after our first stop
he told me the r rear turn signal light would blink once in a while.
i asked if he was talking about my brake light, because i would
kick the cruise off every once in a while w/the brake lever. he
said no, it was the r rear turn signal. i dont know if the front
was coming on too. cant see either one. anyone else have this
happen and any ideas?thanks !--irv

sumpton loooose... seriously, it's a loose connection or a loose bulb or a short in the wire. Start with making sure the bulb is inserted firmly in the socket.

or bulbs?

When I said to check the bulbs, I meant the LED assembly. It is a plug and play arrangement... and the plug must be tight to work properly.

Was it blinking randomly when it was not supposed to or was it functioning sporadically when it was supposed to be flashing?

All lights on the cross bikes are LED, except the headlights.

That's an odd one.

It's not likely that you would have 2 wires worn to the point of allowing voltage to get to the bulb circuit. May be a problem in the turn signal controller.

I'd try to recreate it. Make sure it wasn't sunlight reflecting off the chrome onto that bright red bike.

wasnt on before.course its not super bright.
do any of you guys run with your brights on instead of low beams?

and we have about 4400 miles on it.

I used to run with the high beams on, until I put in the HID bulbs. No need now. I've been told the high beam is too much even in the daylight.

If you have the stock bulbs, turn your high beam on. Try to be as visible to the cage drivers as possible.
