Default Turn signals

Just getting my '89 back on the road, running great, but suddenly all the turn signals do not work. can anybody suggest the one point that would cause all the signals to not work? Relay or fuse?

Here's the Sportsterpedia section on Turn Signals:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ignal_function

Read over that entire section.
Look at the stock wiring diagram for the '86-'90 models.

Then check the TS blinker can in the headlight... Do you get power to the can? Is the can clicking?

If you haven't replaced that blinker can in the near past, you should take it to a local auto parts store & buy another one - should be around $10...

Autozone has this for $3.99 =

You can also find more capable units, like adj. flash rate & LED compatible...
