    Clutch/Left Turn Signal

    I have a strange problem. Often when I pull in the clutch to shift, the left turn signal comes on. This is particularly bad in wet weather. Any ideas and suggestions for repair appreciated.

    Thank You

    That's what I was afraid of. Maybe I'll get my wife to try it. I'm thinking of what kind of tool I could design that might be helpful.

    I appreciate the response.

    R1200RT Bulb Replacement

    Does anyone know the technique for replacing the headlight bulbs, in this case the right low beam? I can get my hand on the cover but I can't get any leverage to unscrew it.
