Turn Signal Delayed Op. Detailed.
Feedback on my right side blinker that took upto a minute or more to start operating. Bike is in a dusty environment, being in Riyadh, which is in the middle of a desert.
Consensus on the Forum was to use dielectric grease & to lubricate connections.
Being mechanically challenged, I took SAE 90 Gear Oil & squirted a decent amount in the slot for the turn signal button.
Lo & behold. The operation is a success. Time to hand the scalpel to the junior surgeon to stitch 'er up & for the nurse to do the towel count.
As for me, I'm going for a ride tomorrow night in 18 degree Centigrade weather.
Apologies to Duckhunter, bmiller.123, Nobody & all who are in hibernation 'till Spring.
P.S. My non-riding friend/colleague from Perth, Australia, just got back to Riyadh, after a Stem Cell transplant for a blood cancer. Sadly, he will be leaving us to go back home. I wish him the best & will miss him. Please pray for him.
Ride Safe & Friendly.
