On Friday, while at a stop light I noticed that my lights were flickering..the headlights, tail light, instrument panel...everything was flickering. It was raining pretty hard, so I figured that it may have been a wire that had gotten wet, and was shorting.

However, teh flickering seemed to go away once I gave it some gas...when the throttle is open, the lights do not flicker (seemingly)...when I'm stopped at a light, they will flicker..not a strong flicker, but it's noticeable.

Also, I've rode the bike all day Saturday, and all day Sunday, but I didn't notice ant flickering (maybe because of the sunlight during the day); I didn't ride Monday, but then this morning (Tuesday), I noticed that the flickering is back again...any thoughts?

P.S. The answer to the obvious question is NO, I haven't checked the batter for a good charge yet, cuz I don't have a tester, and everything is closed by the time I get off..plus this seems like it may be something besides the battery itself (the battery is only a little over a year old).

If it's just at idle don't worry about it.
Maybe set your idle speed up a bit.
Should be around 1100-1200 rpm

Alright..I fixed it..I hope...I checked all the signals, cleaned the battery connections and got some new nuts for the battery screws..checked all the fuses, and turned up the idle switch...voila (spelling)..no more flickering
