Indicator lights not indicating

Post by Monsignore » Tue Aug 02, 2016 1:52 pm

I went to take my '83 GL1100I hack out to a parking lot to practice my turns and noticed the turn signal idiot light wasn't blinking.
I pulled over and none of the indicators would flash, the brake light wouldn't come on (though taillight works), hi- & lo-beams work, but indicator does not. Neutral & Oil lights work. Horn works.

I replaced all the fuses, but no joy.

Friday, I had unstuck the brake pedal. I removed the small cotter pin from the master cylinder assembly, and the little spring just forward of that, but replaced both of them.

I had also unhooked the headlight cuz I thought I needed to replace the Vetter fairing headlight housing, but I didn't need to replace it.

What should be my next step along the troubleshooting chain?
