Our bikes have seperate front turn signal grounds because they are rubber mounted. The grounds are the black/white wires that connect to the aluminum blocks inside the fork ears that the TS shaftes go through. The same black/white wires ground the headlight too. However, this is not a 100% reliable grounding scheme due to the fact it goes to the frame through the steering head bearing.
I had a frustrating problem with erratic TS function when I put my '75 back together. Sometimes normal function, sometimes slow flashing, sometimes only one side would work, etc. I fixed it by running a seperate ground from the frame that I jumped into the black/white circuit inside the headlight (thus bypassing the steering head bearings). Everything has worked perfectly since then. _________________ Currently - 75 Suz TS250, 02 Kaw ZX-6R
i tried grounding to the bolt holding the forks to the frame and it was no better.i have an electronic flasher,so i thought it might have gone bad,and bought another at an auto parts store.it would not even turn on the signals,let alone flash.so i put my original one back in.at least they light now.the flasher i have has all the writing worn off so i can't even begin to find another like it. it is rectangular and has a kind of belt clip on it.2 connector.again,it may not be that,but the switch works and the signals do light,the flasher clicks once when the switch is turned on,but no more.
I think it's most likely the problem is the ground circuit of black/white wires in the headlight that grounds the front turns signals. Here are a couple pics of the ground jumper I made (has blue crimp connectors) and where I grounded it to the screw on the frame.
Your electronic flasher should work as long as the turn signals are properly grounded. If you disconnect the 2 front ones completely, do the rear ones flash? _________________ Currently - 75 Suz TS250, 02 Kaw ZX-6R
