Arrow Blinker problem

All blinkers on my bike flash when I use my turn signals (both L & R). I've been told that it may mean there is a bad ground in the system... any ideas what the problem may be or how to fix it?

Re: Blinker problem

did you trace the wiring down and check the grounds?

Re: Blinker problem

Did it just start out of the blue or did you install the flushmounts or the integrated taillight and then it started happening? Because the R6 has 3 wire front turn signals oem and flushmounts mostly only use 2 (ground and the power for the turn signal to flash, and at least on my integrated it used only the ground from the taillight itself not the ground for each signal for the whole housing then you just need the proper positive wires installed.

I bought the bike with the intergrated lights... its been doing it since I bought the bike regularly but every once in a while the signals will function properly.
