    So, here is the deal, few days back I was riding and all of a sudden the left directional started blinking and it would not stop. So, I checked the connections under the seat and I thought it was sort of a short because of some exposed cables. Anyway, the problem seemed fixed until today. The light started blinking again but the difference this time was that as it started blinking by itself, it'd suddenly stop just when it felt like it. Right now it's working fine. So, I don't know if the fuse box (the gray block underneath my seat) needs to be replaced and if yes, does anyone know where can I order it online?

    Your thoughts?

    Thanks for your help.

    I would look into the switch housings on the left bar for a pinched wire myself. Have you done anything involving them recently?

    I just washed it. Maybe some water got into it...After I washed it, the problem started.

    There's probably your answer, try to blow it out with some air or park it in the sun.
