Finally got to take her out for a run yesterday, my boss gave me part of the afternoon off just to go play for a while. I had an issue while running the left blinker (as you are sitting on the bike). It was blinking fast and I remembered the front blinker was rusted inside - somehow it had gotten water in it. When I got home I opened it up and it was rusty - after some time of coaxing I was able to get the bulb out without breaking it and tried it in the blinker socket on the right and it worked fine. I scraped and used emory cloth but just couldn't get it to work properly. I got it to blink properly but it won't stay illuminated with the key on. So I wiggled it and it would work - seemed to be where it attached to the bar not at the bulb. Since this is a 2003 Vstar 650 Classic it has a crimp bolt with a rubber bushing inside it. I took the bolt all the way off but just couldn't get the light to come off - it is just so tight on the rubber bushing. Any ideas on how to get this off to check the connections without breaking it? Does it twist off or pull straight out - it looks like it should just pull straight out.
