    turn signals not working

    Hi - first post. Picked up a very low mileage '83 CB750. Have a few issues I could use some advice on as I try to get this road worthy.

    Turn signals light up (running lights on front), but don't flash (they turn off when turn signal is activated). There is a fat round solenoid mounted next to the battery and a loose solid green wire that I can't figure out where it goes.

    Is this the turn signal solenoid like I think it is? What is the solid green disconnected wire supposed to go to? It's got a factory spade connector that goes somewhere, but there isn't anything within reach of the wire length.

    Thatís your turn signal relay. On my 1980 750c, the green wire just hangs out. It isnít supposed to hook up to anything. I replaced the relay on got my rear blinkers to work. From reading other forums yours sounds like it might be a grounding issue. Look up the wiring diagram and go through your grounds and/or replace the relay.
