Default Turn signals all flashing at once

Hi I'm new to this group, but I just got a 1986 kawasaki ninja 600. But it has some kind of electrical problem causing all signals to flash when using either turn signal. I was wondering what could cause this problem & how much it could run.

Sounds like your wires are probably touching when the cables have rubbed together and exposed the bare wire. Personally I'd look at it myself.. You can start where the turn signal switch is and open up the casing on the wire. Stick you finger between the two wires (it wont shock you) and turn the signals on.. run your fingers down the wires and follow them to the first split. it should be somwhere before that since it is affecting the front and rear.. once one side of the signal stops then look closer and find where the wires have gone bare.. either cut the section out and put some new wire in or just wrap it in electrical tape...

Agreed with above, if you need any parts. A good site is bikebandit.com have a lot of parts for the older bikes. Good luck.

Yeah I'm hoping its just wire rubbing. It can't be that big of a problem.

I believe your wires might be touching.
