Replaced the Smart Relay, thought it was the culprit, no joy.

Tested the signal switch, no current going out when switched to the right.

All fuses appear to be working.

Anyone has experienced such problem?

Probably a bad connection between the relay and the light.

There is a white 2 pin quick connector (the tail end of the blink stalk) which is not water tight and may have gotten moisture and crud in it.

Thanks sbaert. The relay you're referring to is the one found in the left rear section, correct?

Where do I find the 2 pin connector?

The flasher & hazard on the current gen MP3 is located upfront behind the instrument cluster. On older gen MP3s, that same flasher is located at the rear where it was prone to getting green death from dirt and wetness picked up by the rear wheel.

As I said earlier, the connector is located at the end of the turn signal where it goes through the fairing.

So the switch is already proven to be faulty? Replace it.
