1980 turn signal buzzer

Post by Chewy »



i would try to explain but it would be too much typing, and i hate typing.

the bike has no known wiring issues, ive done a lot of tracing. has been stored inside of my shed, which does not have any leaks.
is there a fix, or can i simply disconnect it? the only mod ive done aside from the alternator conversion, which works great, is an led flasher. have not put the leds on yet, but that is my next project.

It's likely the LED flasher. The LED flasher has electronics in it to time the flash independently of the amount of current draw, and may be leaking enough to actuate the buzzer. I would just yank the buzzer out of it.

I had originally thought that it might have been the LED flasher as well, so I pulled it and put the old mechanical and back on. The buzzing was still there so like you said I just unhooked it. maybe if I come across a fix in the future I'll fix it but for now, I'm buzzer free.
