A mate and I decided today to go on a week long 1800km roadtrip on Tuesday, so getting my bike in immaculate conditions is imperative, and there is obviously no time (or budget) to get a mechanic. What were Yamaha thinking when they opened their belgarda factory? The electrics on the TTR600 show their national character. My rear left indicator hasn't worked since I've had the bike. I always assumed it was the bulb. Finally got round to changing the bulb today. Swapped the rear left and right bulbs around- turns out bulb is not the problem. Now, normally I would assume it was just the wiring to the rear left, and start there, testing connections. However something very strange happened after I swapped the bulb. Now the front left indicator doesn't work. When you flick the indicator switch, it flashes once, very dimly, and then no more. If the headlight is on, this single barely visible flash dims the headlight majorly, like it's draining a lot of power, to no result. WTF? Swapping the bulbs back around does not restore the front left indicators previously impeccable function. Have I created a problem with a major electrical component? Tragically I'm resigned to the fact I may need to seek alternative transport for the road trip.
