OK, please tell me someone else has had this happen.

My left turn signal stopped working, but only when the bike is running, kill the motor and it works fine. The right signal works fine, all the time.

If I accelerate past 8,000 rpm, the highbeam turns itself on. SLow down or upshift, the low beam comes back on.

I wish I was joking, but this is the most bizzare thing I have ever experienced. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I was having some strange signal behavior - mostly failing and then coming back on miles later - until I removed the headlight and exercised all the patches (unplugged and replugged all the connections). Everything's been fine since then.

I had a problem with the trip counter and electrical guages on my old bike. It turns out that water got into something when i was washing. i started being careful with spraying water in that area and the problem went away.

Have had my bike since April. No problems until this morning when I noticed the left indicator on (not blinking). The ignition key was not in. I could not switch it off. Everything else was fine when I started the bike, but the light stayed on. And it stayed on when I switched the ignition off. It switched itself off after a hour. Anyone experienced this problem and what was the cause and remedy? Thanks,

PS Didn't wash the bike and it has never been out in the rain.

Hi Guys,

A longstanding issue on Brutale. Some have fixed by reterminating as mentioned above and some have found bad grounds.

I suggest ensuring your dealer knows about all of these issues. They will most likely trace it to the 'junction box' which controls this behaviour on Brutales. I read on here within the last couple of weeks that they have been through many revs of this part but it is still not fixed. One owner, forgive me I've forgotten the username, has isolated the issue to a bad trace on the circuit.

Tonight I had to cut my fun short, as my headlight decided to shut off altogether several times in a pack of 10+ riders (following all the posted speed limits :jerkoff: ....not a hooligan in the bunch :devilsmok ). I'm pulling the headlight an giving everything a good once over tomorrow morning, thats just too damn dangerous for me.

I'll revive this thread with a new post. On my Brutale, the highbeams will flick on for just a moment, as if I'm flashing them at someone. Usually happens when downshifting, operating at low speeds, like when coming to a stop at a light or when entering my garage. I'm sure a lot of drivers think i'm trying to signal to them somehow, and are confused.

I guess there are a variety of electrical weirdorama problems that can occur. I'll count myself lucky and reterminate.

When I bought my Brutale (used) one of the first problems I got was an electrical one.

The bike had been functioning fine for over a week of daily riding, and then suddenly, after a ride, I got home, shut off the bike and lo and behold the bike would not turn off. I had the key removed and it was still running!

The last thing I did that day was shorten the front turn signal light by removing the little extension piece installed on the US bikes to comply with regulations... so I suspected that it had something to do with that wiring up front.

I removed the headlight, and I discovered that one of the electrical prongs in the headlight coupler was detached (green wire, to be exact).... I disconnected the headlight, did a little fiddling with the wires to make sure all was intact and reconnected it. Problem solved. Something there was causing a ground that created the electrical "funkiness"
