Front Turn Signal Question

Does anyone know if the front turn signals are supose to be illuminated all the time along with also operating as directionals? It seems that they should and mine don't , only when signaling. Most bikes I see at night are lit up ..???

Nope the stock turn signals only come on when your turning...I have heard of someone getting a new receptacle and turning the signals into running lights and turn signals, using a dual filament bulb.

2008 DL650 VStrom Yellow and Black
Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

That would be me. I do it to every bike I own and for friends bikes too. Go to your local auto parts store and get the dual filament 1157 sockets and all you have to do is swap it out and add 1 extra positive (hot when ignition on) wire to each bulb. Any questions, just ask.
