No left turn signals

I was out last night on the LT. Went to use my left signal. Nothing.... right and everything else working. Bulbs burned out?

Re: No left turn signals

A burned out bulb normally causes the good bulb to flash rapidly (not sure about this bike as I've not had a bad bulb). Both front and rear did nothing or the dash light didn't light? Did you try the hazard button?

Re: No left turn signals

Do you have the side mirror indicators? Those are LED so if yo have them and those are not working, you have another issue.

No. Didn't try hazards as it was late when I came home. Good idea...

Re: No left turn signals

Well. I took off front turn signal lens. The muth mirrors are tied in the bulb socket with spade connectors. Took the bulb out checked it. Nothing. Checked the connectors. Nothing there. Popped off left mirror. Looked at the wires feeding thru to the mirror from the bulb socket. Turns out the wires were pinched. I took off the mirror and the left tupperware to find out why my fork mounted motolight flickered on and off. That turned out to be broken wires in their insulation(Jacket). Another story. Must have pinched them putting mirror back on.
