Last week my turn signal switch started to give me some trouble. Right turn works as normal, but the left turn won't activate at all unless I hit it right turn, then pull it across to left turn. Is this a switch problem or wiring? Any suggestions?

Probably just the switch. Pull it open and clean it with plastic safe contact cleaner.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Kind of where I was heading. Sounds like a project I can get into this weekend. After the Highland Games, that is.
