turn signal switch

Postby arrowman69 » Thu Jun 25, 2015 10:27 pm



My switch is really loose. My left blinker comes on just before I come to a rolling stop the right on turns on right away but neither turn back off by themselves. Is there a spring broken or what? how hard is the fix?

Not sure about your question but the signals have a self cancelling switch not part of the trun signal switch on the handlebars.

You said 'your switch is really loose' what does that mean? I'd say the self cancelling switch is loose but the other half of the story sounds like Hondas .25 cent switch is broke if thats whats wobbly.

If what you describe is in fact broken springs or the switch itself, I was told (before I found this site) that these switches do not come apart and can not be repaired. I unfortunately had the same issue and had to buy the complete set up for the left side and the right side because of the switches failing. PITB to replace and not cheap. :( :(

Listen to Wingman, there are a few places I bought from that are really reasonable and stand behind their prodiuct. Try e-bay, One Stop Outlet..........once you split that switch housing little pieces of platic junk fall out (aka switch parts).....we still don't know what is loose

please take pictures as you repair and post for someone else in the future. Good luck with the repair.
