    [Electrical] Indicator switch?

    Hi,

    after winter break my indicators do not work. I checked:
    - bulbs - ok
    - fuse - ok.

    I disconnected the connector going to the switch and voltage is on the green cable only - is that ok? I powered the other connector (female ends) and lights go on and in some one can hear a 'click' which is responsible for lights flashing I assume . When I connect those two back and play with the switch (high beam, horn, pass) you hear those 'clicks' but nit when I use the indicator switch. Hence my assumtion it is broken. How can I check using a multimeter (resistance?) if it works?

    If someone has other ideas they're more than welcome

    Hearing a click but no indicator would suggest relay to me.

    1) how can I diagnose the relay itself?
    2) if relay is down when can I get a replacement (apart from Aprilia service <- time & money are usually not acceptable ) ?

    find the relays, put your ear near it, flick the switch if you get a single click, its fooked. Should click on and off and on and off to work indicators.

    Ebay, bike shop, dealer etc for replacement.

    hmm when I flip the handlebar switch no sound is there hence either fried or bad connection (will clean it to see). two days ago I disconnected the connector to the RH handlebar switch and powered each lead in it. one of them made the bulb go on and other (don't remeber colors) made a 'click' sound but only one.
