I am finishing putting together a bike that was wrecked pretty hard. I dont know if the signals worked prior to being wrecked but the electrical controls on the left clip on were busted in the wreck. I replaced the switch with a used one and nothing on that switch works. No brights/no horn and the signals dont work either. When I plug in the switch the two arrows on the dash stay lit up. Does it look like I got a bad switch since nothing on that side works or should I look elsewhere?

Its been a while since I checked last, but I didnt see anything out of place up front. I will take another look this weekend to see if I can find anything. There are no blown fuses and everything from the left handlebar harness was plugged in. One thing that is odd, is that with the harness plugged in I checked all the turn signal wires with a test light and none of them did anything except the right rear. It would flash like the signal was on and it would only stop flashing if I unplugged the handle bar harness.

Long shot I am afraid as I am a bit hazy as to whether change occurred in '00 or '02 but the wiring configuration of the connector & loom changed although the controls look identical.

IF it changed in '00 and you have '98-'99 controls it could be the reason for your problem.

Maybe someone who knows when the change occured could confirm what year it changed.
