troubleshooting codes / flashing lights

So I was riding to work the other morning and my turn signals starting acting erratic. Left or right, it didn't matter, the light would blink twice regular, then start flashing rapidly.
This didn't happen again until last night when I was riding home from work.
Is this a troubleshooting light for something else, or might the actual blinker itself be going bad.

Don't waste a day wishing you rode!

Re: troubleshooting codes / flashing lights

The blinker module is a rather complex electronic circuit and usually does not exhibit erratic behaviour. A corroded turn signal lamp housing connector will cause that symptom or a bad bulb.

Mine did that, it was the ground wire to the bulb socket. I knocked it loose when i took the nosecone off.
