Hi, Wynand before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

Back firing is normally due to two things,

Ignition timing happening at the wrong time. This can be over advanced where it back fires through the carbs, and retarded when it fires through the exhaust.

Unburnt fuel in the exhaust can cause detonation by hot gases or carbon..

Yours is strange that it is happening in both places! That can be caused by badly sealing valves, but you have the compression?

Have you checked ignition timing?

Hi Mitchmanj, you probably have a clutch switch/sensor issue and I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

The circuit is this:From your fuse box runs a Light Blue wire to your left handlebar switch.That wire is "live" and transfers power to the turning signal switch.That switch depends on what direction you push it, transfers the power to:1) Light Green wire that powers the right hand turning signal bulbs (front and back)2) Black wire that powers the left hand turning signal bulbs (front and back)Each bulb uses a Black/White wire to ground and close the circuit.
