Okay, wired my turn signals how I thought, but now all 4 of my turn signals come on when I turn the left/right like flashers. They blink at a normal pace.

So, can someone help me out? BTW, I have a 2001 SV650S (not a N!) so the wiring is different!

Thanks, Trev

Not sure if this'll help because I have a 2nd-gen S, but here is how my signals are wired:

Ground (common) Vapor black to bike black/white
Left signal (power) Vapor blue to bike black
Right signal (power) Vapor light green to bike light green

You didn't keep the diodes when you wired up the single light for the blinker indicator. You need to have a left and right light or install a diode on the positive wires coming to the indicator light.

diode? What is that? And do I even need a stupid turn signal light? I would MUCH rather have a fuel light than a turn signal light. I hardly EVER forget to turn off my turn signals, but I sometimes run out of gas. lol.

Is wiring the fuel light pretty easy and straight forward?

The fuel light uses orange/green and red/black wires (on my '07, at least)

Sweet...I'll try to get that working.

So what if I don't use a turn signal light, will my signals still work, and would I just attach the two wires together that I'm not using???

Sorry for so many questions. lol

The fuel light is easy if you use an incandescant light, just wire it up. If you use an LED you will have to put a resistor in the wiring to simulate the resistance of an incandescant light. Not too hard, but you have to really understand wiring.

All this info has been discussed multiple times before. I'll tell you to search because I don't have time to look for it.
