Erratic indicators

Indicators on my A2 (both sides) seem to flash erratically ie double flash/flicker for a while occasionally and then often return to normal - All bulbs are working ie none blown - Any ideas please ? Thanks all :roll:

Couldn't resist it today - Such a nice sunny day so battery back on and started her up after 3 months or so in winter hibernation, then out for a 20 miles or so run - Ran like a dream !! :D

Re: Workshop Manual

Thanks all and after a bit more thought, I've decided to buy a used Kawa manual via EBay - Although it's in Oz, my son is living there right now and I will be over there soon too so he will buy it and saves uk postage and duty etc.Happy days !! :biggrin

Workshop Manual

Thinking of getting a WSM for my 1979 Reg Z1000 A2 - The only Haynes manual I can see states its for "900 and 1000 Fours from 1973 to 1977" - is this still the correct one for my bike ? Although my was Reg in 79 I assume it was actually a 1978 build as it defo one of the last A2's - Cheers...
