    turn indicator headache

    hello new to forum:
    I have a 2005 gsxr and my problem is every time turn the right or left signals or the 4-ways come on. I just bought the bike so not sure where to even start looking. The previous owner said he replaced flasher relay but didn't fix it. Any idea's

    First, make sure that the 4-way switch really IS in the off position, then exercise it a bit.

    A shop could probably find and fix it for about 1/2 hours labor.

    A wiring diagram (shop manual) and a multi-meter would help a lot if you are going to tackle it yourself.

    Does it still have the stock signals? When I put led signals on mine, it flashed all 4. If the previous owner put led signals on it, have a shop add an inline resistor.

    Yeah, my thought also. If these are aftermarket signals with LEDs then they are your problem, as they do not draw enough power to work right, so you need an inline resistor. If they are stock signals, then EZ is on the right track and you need to start checking for shorts.
