    So I was out for ride last night stopped at a store, when I left I noticed my blinker indicator wasn’t working so I came home to check it out and I have no blinkers, no horn and no brake light . The headlights both bright and dim still work and my tail light is also working. I’d appreciate any suggestions . Thanks

    i think its a fuse or relay… a short would cause your lights to be really dim and things go haywire when theres a short

    Not sure on the 1000 but mine is under the left fairing under a rubber cap. Lift it off to access the fuses. Do you have a 12V tester where you can ground the clip and touch each side of the fuse to see if it lights up on both sides of the fuse? Make sure the key is on. It’s easier than pulling them and trying to see if it’s popped.

    yup.. simple as that.. i got a little into electric car problems with a former car of mine… when i would turn on the turning signal my seat belt would start jerking and when i pressed on my brake all the lights in the back would turn on and about a million other problems like that and the cause of it was a connector wasn’t fully pushed in in the trunk… after that there were still a couple more problems but it was driveable lol
