  • Turn signal backwards

    Do any of you know which wires handles the turn signals? I know that sounds kind of dumb, but some of you know this stuff in your sleep. Just thought I’d try the easy way first and ask.

    Almost 2 years ago, I added 16” apes, and since then, my turn signals are backwards. I want to fix it the easiest possible way.

    I was looking in the headlight space to see if I could easily identify which plug it was, but even that was a little tricky. I really don’t want to go through a huge effort. Just want to switch back a couple wires. What is the easiest way to do this?

    I have the scematic for my bike, but I forgot how to read them. It’s been a very long time since I’ve had to turn a scematic into real application.

    Otherwise, I may just keep signaling right to go left, etc. haha. Thanks.

    On the 1999 to 03s, the dark green is the right turn signal, the brown is the left turn signal, and the blue goes to both marker lights. I'm fairly sure the color code is the same for the 2013 bikes. If it's not, please let me know for furture reference. Duke.

      Awesome. Thank you. I’ll check it out. Probably next weekend.

    If everything works properly and just the switch is backwards...... can you flip the switch in the housing? (Haven’t had mine apart so not sure if it’s an option). Or you can just reverse the wires at the switch and that may be easier than digging into the wiring in the headlight.

      Not as easy as opening up the headlight bucket.

        Are the turn signals backwards on both the front, and back of the bike?

          Yes. They are exactly the same.

            When you installed the 16" ape bars did you have to splice in more wiring?
            Seams that the green and brown wires have been crossed form the control switch to the connector in the head light bucket. You might want to check that out.

              That’s entirely possible.

              I think what I did is put them backwards into the plug I pulled them all out of the plastic plugs so I could run then through the bars.
