    I have a 2007 sportster 1200C and my left turn signal blinks when I start the bike. I can use my right turn signal and the left will turn off or both will blink. When I use the left turn signal nothing happens. Any help will be appreicated.

    Welcome Junior23 to the HDTalking forum and your 1st post. Was there any recent work done to the bike, rain or moisture? Sounds like you need to carefully disassemble the left turn signal and inspect the bulb, contact area of the socket for evidence of corrosion or discoloration of the bulb base or contacts. Check for cut insulation and may want to swap bulbs with right. Also check the rear turn signal, wiring up under the fender and under seat. Check all pass thru areas and wire looms. Keep us informed as to your progress. :s

    Pinched wire or like on the last one I fixed, it was a bad handle bar switch. Switch failed in the on position.
