SoCal LED Switchback turn signal kit

Feb of this year I ordered and installed a LED Switchback turn signal kit on my F6B and it was operating flawlessly until yesterday 5/18 my right hand signal completely quit. No light, no turn signal. I have check connections to see if they are solid (and they are) at the signal head but haven't dove into the rest of the connections line yet. I was hoping to find out if this is common fail or it there's a troubled area I should go to check next?

Phone Socal.
Their after sales customer support is top notch.
They'll connect you to their head tech and he'll walk you through the troubleshooting.

If it ain't broke, try to fix it anyways

After some troubleshooting, I found that the bulb was the culprit. I thought LED's weren't suppose to burn out in the first 30 days

I found out one of my bulbs did the same thing, not making good connection. They are not made as good as the oem bulbs.

I had an SoCal LED bulb go out on my bike as well. I contacted them and, even though my bulbs were out of warranty (almost 2 years old), they made me a great deal to get replacements....about $20 off if I remember right. Give them a call. I'm confident they'll make it right!
