Front R Indicator not working

Hi Guys
Probably a very elementary question, but i've only had my brutale 750 for 2 days.
Noticed the front right indicator does not work. The right rear works and the dash indicator works, but they are flashing faster than the left...indicating a problem.
The left side works fine.
Ive changed the bulb but still not working.
I don't have the manual yet, so what's the next step in fixing it.
Thanks

It's the SPU or 'fuse box'.
It may be symptomatic of future problems, or just a thing that may or may not come and go.
Try searching here for 'turn signal' 'cdi' 'stalling' etc.

Any after market parts, or is everything stock?
When I replaced my rear indicator stalks with the clear alternatives
rear integrated taillight assembly, one side always has flashed faster than the other

You might check the electrical connections to the blinker giving you trouble.

It may just be a connection problem but my bike has the same problem just with the left hand indicator. The good thing is i know how mine broke, i changed the stock indicators for LEDs and shorted the left indicator out. Bad thing was to fix it was a new fuse/CDI box to the tune of £280. I hope yours isn't this as it costs a lot and mine is still not fixed because my dealer can't get me a Fuse box that works properly.

Does my bum look fast on this?

Hmm, good to know. At one point while my bike was in the shop, they kept getting a fault code they couldn't find. Pulled everything off, down to the harness, no trace of a problem.
So they put it all back together, and voila! no fault.

While we're on the subject: I have just fitted smoked lenses to the turn signals on my 750 which required changing the bulbs from clear to orange. The indicators worked initially but when I went out for a run they packed in altogether - both sides. I have checked the fuses - all OK. Anybody else had this problem, any suggestions? I've tried cleaning the switch etc. Neutral light has also started staying on when in gear, so maybe its a CPU problem?

It is probably not the CPU (ECU) it is probably the Fuse box, or Power Control Unit (PCU). On the Brutales, unlike the F4s, the relays are in a sealed box on the right side of the bike.

You would think by now I would have looked in the manual to see what the factory calls the damn thing.
