We've discussed the indicators on F4's before, the fact that sometimes the mirror contacts can cause problems etc. I've just been out for a run of about 50 miles at errr. quite high speeds (well what do you have a F4 for in the first place?) It's also been a lovely day here with temps in the mid 20's. :blah: Anyhow, indicators packed up about half way around and when I got home I checked the relay (close to the cylinder head on the LHS as you sit on the bike, behind the fairing panel) It was bloody hot as you would expect but I mean really hot, :cussing: I unplugged it and cleaned the contacts, both male and female with a proprietory solvent and hey presto, it works fine again now. :) But I don't think it was the contacts which were dirty, more the relay was too hot. :mad: Has anybody else had the same problem, especially those guys who are fortunate enough to live where mid 20's temp is a normal, even cool day? Thats about 80F for you guys who still work in farenheit BTW.

Hey brother,
I have had so many problems with my blinkers that I could not even begin to help you, I just wanted you to know that you are not alone...BY the way "KEEP ONE WHEEL DOWN" ??? Ive been known to get a little air under both from time to time! And not just when I crash...Ha Ha Ha

Be well-
-FBD

P.S. When is junior getting a used F-4 750? That is the plan right?

Hi John,

In Texas I've been on 12 hour 115f/46C air temps (in the shade) without problems from the relay. Hopefully it was just the dirty/loose contact. Perhaps others have different experience but I would have expected to run into this problem here if it existed?

My left signal doesnt work when the bike is running, but the right works fine. Also, if i accelerate past 8K, the hi beam turns on all by itself!

The fuse should blow way before the blinker relay shits itself.
No it wont, the fuse is not affected by heat, and relays are. The only thing that will blow a fuse is a spike in electrical current.
