Turn Signal issues
Yesterday afternoon, I did a little bit of work on my bike. Lubed up the chain, checked the front sprocket for wear (about to change the chain), and I finally got tired of my turn signal switch sticking...
I took apart my control on the handle bar, and took soap and water to the switch to clean out some of the crevices. It "appeared" to be working better. Rode it around and it seemed fine.
This morning, it's a little below 50 and I take her to work. The turn signal is VERY sticky in the cold, and it was just as sticky this time as it was the last, much to my dismay. But, I also have a new problem, when I use the turn signal, it doesn't seem to be working. I press left or right, and the light turns off and does not blink. I did this with the engine off, and I can hear the clicking of the turn signal relay...but the clicking is way off. Normally you hear a very rhythm-like clicking as it works. This time, it was very spaced out, as if it only wanted to click every other-other time...
Any ideas? Did my relay decide to go out very conveniently alongside my cleaning of the contacts in my switch? Or did I goof-up without realizing?
