Electric Problem.

My 04 gsf600 has developed a nice little electrical problem and was woundering if any one had seen it before?

When parked up with the wheel on full left lock everything works fine but once you move the bike of the side and center the stering, all the indicators stop working and  the brake light stops working as does the rear light, the head light still works thou.

I am guessing there is a brake in a wire or a short some where, as if i turn the stering all the way to the left again everything works again.

Any one come accross this before?

I`ve heard of this before on here,as you and oscar says try simulating the fault to one wire or connector by twiddling seperate wires/looms.With the battery disconnected look for chaffed wires from the ignition switch to the connector block and them connections.Have the handlebars been raised or anybody tried to steal the bike?

Yep

this rings a bell with me too; if I recall properly, some Suzukis are prone to electrical faults on steering lock due to stretching wiring which eventually snaps altogether.

Have a look and see if you can see wiring being snagged / pulled as you turn the bars.
