    Does anyone know why my front indicators are permanently on with my new Msx uk spec ?

    • All MSXs do it. Meant to be a safety feature...but I find it did the complete opposite. Cut the wire with the tracer to stop it

    • It is a safety feature as my headlight keeps packing up so you need these to be seen

    • Thanks everyone, phoned the dealer, euro 4 compliant, the Africa twins have it too.

    • Headlight packing up ?

    • Yep. Stall it and it goes off but lately just doesn't start. Didn't work at all yesterday

    • Ian have you had it back to the dealers ?

    • Not yet. It was to intermittent and they are a long way away so wasn't going to bother till it got worse.

    • It's a feature there's nothing wrong with them they are all like that :)

    • Ian I'd noticed you'd wrapped the forks mate so maybe somethings loose ? Did you take the headlight off before it started happening ?

    • Its a feature not a bug :p

    • You could just change them for smoked lenses, dual orange/white leds and the relay.

    • I wrapped them in the bike so didn't disturb the light but I have had it off and unplugged and back on to see if it would help and for a few days it seemed to fix it but now it's not working again. I think it might be happening when it's wet so will see how I go with that idea. I wonder if there is a relay that works it and tells it when to switch on and off so may need to unplug that.

    • Ian as you say water could cause, also a slightly loose connection as these vibrate quite a bit. I've used acf50 on electrical connectors in the past over winter as it repels water, also covering them in a plastic sleeve and wrapping both ends, really you should get it in at the dealers when you can but at least notify them.

    • I have done the exact same as Philip! Much better than having running orange DRLs lol

    • If they go wrong everybody thinks youre turning and pulls out on you :(

    • It must be a transformer......
