Right - let's get straight to the point - this is weird & I could use a bit of help.

My RH front inidicator (2019 CB1000R) seems to work just fine.

It lights up a bit dim all the time as a DRL, and flashes just fine when you flip the switch.

BUT - after about an hour, the DRL goes off!

If you trigger the indicator, it flashes as normal, and then the DRL wakes back up & is fine for another hour.

LH DRL functions just fine, only the RH side goes 'to sleep'.

Any clues?

... is there something for the DRL itself?
Compare the front indicator and the rear blinker wiring
extra wire is DRL.

Also faulty LED happens.

If you ride among crates, less driven to murder,
the kind we have here...
Exchanging left and right lights.
-bypassing or rewiring the connectors, evidently-
for an hour
can prove or disprove faulty LED.

The indicator assembly isn't switchable from left to right to test that - I can't see what is different (except the pinouts) but there is a huge difference in price!

Left front indicator assembly (#33452KZZJ00) is £23.14 (UK)
Right front indicator assembly (#33400MKJD01) is £85.24 (UK)

4x more expensive!

I've ordered a new one so I can swap it out / test.

Gone are the days of swapping out the bulb for a couple of quid :(

Hence the suggestion:

3 wires are just 3 wires.
That's just 3 terminals to pull out from the plug.
And swap.

Someone asked me once if the swap had to be done on both
the male AND the female connectors.

Or 3 ghetto jumpers, crimped on the wires,
while the plugs are hanging free,
will also do the job for an hour.

Then you know if the LED or inside circuitry is to blame.

Took the CB1000R mainly for the low interest for common thieves
but also for the 5 yrs warranty sale incentive.
McGyvering after 5 years is OK with me.

It's a slow process getting parts at the moment :(

I finally received the replacement indicator module, but when I came to swap it out found that the small 3mm allen head stripped (holds in the indicator to the boot).

Hence I now need to buy a boot + new bolt in order to make the change. Expect another couple of weeks wait for parts!

Shortage of bi-componant glues?
Brittle plastic can be fixed, plugged, even on the outside.

Tiny little screws are aplenty in all configs with the dead computer trade spare parts bin.

Got at least 20yrs of past computers screws in a fishing tackle box!
