Cheers guys I am going to look into this and come back to you. I was especially thankful to know that the alarm doesnt provide the flashing function

Friends,

Went out into the garage tonight and removed the switch assembly which was dead simple. I took time to clean it all up with switch cleaning lubicant and then regrease and put back together. It now seems to work fine but the fault was previously intermittent. Thanks to you all for your help and assistance its greatly appreciated

Thumbs up ?

Down load the manual, and use the electrical trouble shooting guide
Stop hypothesizing about what's wrong......see above^

Do yourself a favor, bin your alarm

People,

it transpires that my indicator switch is knackered and the flasher certainly works.

Mine is a 2000 model 750 F4. The link below is an eBay part which at first looks like it is an identical item to that fitted on my bike.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142627246283?ul_noapp=true

However, upon closer examination the part in the attached photo does not seem to have a headlight 'slider' on it whereas mine (as shown in the attached photo seems to have a headlight slider. Does anyone know where I can obtain an identical version to the existing one I have fitted to my bike.

Yeah...should have the Hi-Low switch included..... use the parts catalogs on StarTwin Trading web site to get the correct part number to search for.

Call your nearest dealer and inquire about availability and cost from the factory.

Edit..... It is the headlight on/off switch. The Hi-Lo is the push button. More discussion in my latest post.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

@Submariner I just went and looked at both my bikes. The switch on your bike doesn't look exactly like the ones on my 2004 F4 and my 2008 910R Brutale.

The turn signal lever knob is different from my bikes, mine are just plain black, and I have no headlight on/off sliding switch.

You are in the UK, and have an early model, so you have a headlight On/Off sliding switch as well as the Hi-Lo beam push button.

The switch you see on eBay does not have the lights on/off switch. I believe deletion of the on/off switch became standard globally at some point in time. We USA guys never had it (USA homologation rules).

I recall (a while ago) a lot of people searching for the early European switch so they could get the lights on/off feature for their later model bikes.

If all you need is the turn signal portion, I would think you could buy one without the lights on/off and use the turn signal bits to rebuild yours.

That may be your best (and possibly only) bet.

Thanks awfully for the time and effort in detailing your thoughts. The flasher definately works so I have started to look at the components inside the switch gear. With a small set of screw drivers I can get right into the switch assembly and clean the switch contacts. Im hoping this will sort the problem as it certainly appears that obtaining a replacement switch if needed will mean the canabalising of another switch as the original switch seems dead rare
