My bike is in the shop at the moment getting things done,I woke this morning & remembered about this clicking noise I had noticed the day before I took it into the shop,when I turned the handlebars to the far left & turned on the ignition,there was this loud clicking noise,when h/bars are in centre position there are no noises,would this have something to do with no sound on my Clarion as I posted in another thread.Sounds to me like I am stretching some wire or something.Any help guys...

Maybe the turn signal cancel solenoid. Do you feel it in the left handlebar? My 83 would click once when I turned the key on and occasionally going straight down the road but the cancel unit worked, at least most of the time.

It was steady loud clicking coming from below the head stock,behind the radiator.Is there some type of box down there.

This may help. My 80 did something similar, but the clicking turned out to be the vinyl covering (loom) for the wire harness. The material became brittle. So solve I put baby powder all over the length of the plastic sleeve and over time it lubricated the vinyl. Now there is no clicking. As an aside, it smells good too.

Like he said probably the self cancelling box. Take off the fake tank and feel the box.

I disconnected mine. Real PITA having that thing shut off my turn signals when getting in the turn lane.

It may be a short in the canceling unit buzzer also. It looks like a little speaker under the FGT, towards the front. Also, on the signal Fuse, it is an piece on the left with rubber holding it on. There are 2 connectors on the bottom, 1 is strait, and 1 goes the other way, kind of like an "L". I'd check that also, but it sounds like the above canceling unit.
Good Luck,
NR1
