    Strange one. I first noticed the when riding today that the time on my clock was showing the incorrect time. Then I noticed that the indicators are not working. Any ideas.

     On the 2016 the combination meter which includes the clock, etc, are on separate circuits than the turn signals but seem to run through the same chase according to the diagram.  Are both the front and the rear turn signals malfunctioning?  Different runs, the same circuit for the fronts and rears.  If it is only one end or the other, perhaps there is abrasion that caused the insulation to become frayed?

    It’s a 2013 model and both front and rear are not working.

    Display and turn signals are connected to the same bus in 2016 if that helps at all.  I know its a 2013 but I bet they are somewhat similar in scheme.  On the 2016 there is a White and Green wire that is common between the turn signal relay and the multifunction display, that is the battery lead.  There is also a Blue Brown for the ignition switch, A Brown BLue for the right turn signal switch, Brown Yellow for the left.  There is of course the common ground as well.

    No sign of damage. A new relay is €96. Don't want to get one if it is not needed. Any more ideas. Clock resets itself to one o'clock every time I start the bike. Another thing I noticed today the low fuel warning now kicks in at 96km left instead of the usual 56 or so kilometres.

    It may be two separate issues, the voltage to the clock and a bad T/S relay (or voltage drop to the relay prevents it from functioning).  Another member had an issue recently with their clock resetting.  The first question is regarding the clock.  Is your battery cranking at the correct voltage?  If so, good.  If it is cranking at the right voltage, do you have accessories wired directly to the battery terminal?  Honda's are very sensitive to this, not sure if it is their relays or what.  If you do have accessories wired, and it is safe to operate it without them wired, disconnect all but the main and see if the problem is resolved.  If that does resolve the problem, a solution that normally works is to install a fuse block with an integrated relay.  Super easy job.  They are pretty reasonable too.

    Might want to check at this time to see if this resolves your turn signal issue as well.  I guess the first question is do the lights come on but the intermittent on-off does not function?  The potential voltage drop may result in insufficient power to allow the relay to function.  There is the switch to consider also...I do not recall the 13s having auto cancel turn signals.

    Hoping...perhaps betting...it is a voltage issue.

    Thanks, I will have another look at it at the weekend. Recent new battery so voltage is ok. Have a few accessories attached directly to the battery and have so for 3 years with no problems.
