Flasher are not flashing

Postby mgendron » Mon Aug 19, 2019 2:54 pm

Hi, I have a cb 650 1980 that I am rebuilding - I had electrical problem but now all is fix.

My problem now is that my flasher lights are working but not flashing - is there a specific wire I need to connect it to?

Could you be a bit more specific, are you using original Honda parts? is it all of your flasher lights or just the front or the rear? Pictures might help.

Original on the bike wires but the flasher, the front light and the speedometer are new - but even with all original they do not flash.

Have you ever figured it out? Might be better if you have a wiring diagram.

So you are using "aftermarket" flashers? Somebody else recently had a problem with aftermarket flashers that would not flash. The solution was to change the bulbs in the aftermarket flashers for the original Honda bulbs, the bulbs in the aftermarket flashers were the wrong wattage or whatever its called, I don't really understand electrics :(
