Turn Signal Beeper Thingy

Postby slowpoke » Fri Jun 15, 2012 6:27 pm



At least, that's what I think it is. This little device is attached on the left fork near the top. It looks like a little mini speaker. I discovered it today after trying to troubleshoot a left rear turn signal malfunction. Anyhoo, after a pretty long time trying to trace down wiring I noticed the little bugger making a meek kitten noise. When I jiggled it the bad signal magically began to work. The unit seems to be sealed and I would like to remove it and take it out of the equation. Is this a good idea and what to do with the wires after I cut them? Looks like four of them. Thanks for all your help. I have adjusted valves and balanced carbs due to your help.

I tossed mine in the round file. Just taped off the wires.

I thought it was connected with bullet connectors.. ?

I have that there thingy too, it put's up a mitty fuss while riding down the road going kinda fast but when I'm at a stop it just makes a clicking sound but it works perfectly on mine, I kinda like it..The bike seems to be alive with it making sounds like that.. :D I'd replace it witha good one, or not... :D
