    I have a 1999 FXDX with turn signal problem. With the bike at idle the turn signals flash fine. If I increase the RPMs the turn signals stop flashing and stay solid. once the bike comes back to idle they flash properly. Also when riding they will not cancel. Anyone come across this problem? if so please gide me in the right direction. Thanks

    :ws Check all of your bulbs to see if they (or any) are LED. LED bulbs draw less current, and do not have enough draw to activate the flasher. If they are LED, you can get a ballast from Badlands, or just put regular filament bulbs in.
    It's just a guess, I thought LEDs did not flash at any rpm.
