somebody re-wired it. So see which wires go to your Blinkers and disconnect that wire from your brake lights. They would have had to splice the blinker wire onto the brake light somewhere get the brake lights to also blink. Wile

Do you have the rear blinker assembly plugged in properly? The entire rear turn signal assembly plugs in with the bullet connectors. Sometimes it's easy to get them switched. Same thing happened to me when I was rebuilding my '86 Spree. I forget exactly what I did but it came down to the plugs being mixed up.

Honda is very popular company in all over the world. 1980 honda express is fun little bike. Its powered by an air-cooled 49cc two Stroke engine coupled to an automatic transmission. Also Its simple to operate.
Working on a 1980 Honda Express. When I turn on the blinkers the brake light blinks too. Is this suppose to happen, if not, what do I need to do? Thanks
I have a 1980 Honda Express doing this same exact thing. What did the problem end up being on yours? I've checked every ground I can find and all seem fine.
Also, mine didn't have a battery when I got it so the wires were spliced. I hooked the wires back up the way they are supposed to be to work with the battery and now the rectifier gets really hot. Even with the key in the off position. I put a different rectifier in it from my other Express and same thing happened, it got hot. Do you think this is related to brake light problem?
One final thought while I'm at it. These express batteries are supposed to act as regulators which is why the headlight bulbs blow if you don't have a battery. Well I put a new bulb in mine when I installed the battery and it blew.

I had an 82 Honda urban express. The problem is not enough power to run headlight, taillight, AND blinkers at the same time. When you use the turn signal it takes power away from the head/tail lights, causing them to blink (dim) opposite the blinkers. Probably not supposed to be like this, but mine did it unless the rpm's were up. Also switched to an LED taillight, they use less voltage, it made it better.

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
