  • New Here - Headlight/Turn signal problems.

    Hello, New member here.
    I have a 93 Katana 600.
    YEsterday was gonna go to the gym, jump on the bike, started it up and noticed the turn signals were not lightning up and the headlight wasn't working either.
    The gaugues light work as well as the light for turns on the board.

    Anyone has any idea how to troubleshoot, fix this?

      Well, the turns should not light up unless you press the turn signal lever to use them.......they aren't suppossed to work in running mode..........

      But.............assuming you knew that....................

      Fuses first
      Then relay
      Then wiring loose somewhere, like up front at connections?

      If they all went bad at the same time, I'd kinda go fuses..........or major short! How's your battery?
      I've owned over 70 Katanas - you think I know anything about them?
      Is there such a thing as TOO MANY BIKES?
      Can you go TOO FAST on a bike?

        the turn only light up when I hit the switch, they stay ON though, they don't flicker on the instrument panel.

        Ill have to check the fuses I guess.

          Check fuses and bulbs... and measure your battery, sometimes when my battery is a bit low they won't blink when the engine is off (the voltage get's too low to make the flasher relay work correctly).
