I have a very odd electrical issue on my 04 R1. At first I thought it was a loose connection but now not so sure.
Here are the symptoms:
On startup the signal indicators (both left & right) will stay lit along with the high beam indicator and the headlights will not go on. The problem is intermitant.
Sometimes I will be trucking along and the problem will go away. It seems to be connected to some degree to engine heat but not completely. When the problem goes away if I toggle the high beam switch the problem reoccurs.
I have also had problems recently with the kickstand switch giving false readings to the ECU but not convinced this issue is connected but may be.
The battery was almost dead after the bike sat for a week and a half. The battery is brand new and I know is in good shape.
Some fellow thought it might be a relay.
Any thoughts on the matter? Being an electrical issue (and no electrical knowledge) I am not sure who to take the bike to. I won't get into the reasons why. Think it's obvious.
I have a shop manual if someone wants to reference an electrical diagram in PDF form.
