Well one of my turn signal bulbs burned out so i figured hey i'll go get a new one..swap in the new one no problem. Well i got the old one out..pushed the new one in to see if it would work....Well i turned it on..the front signal worked..but the back didnt. So i messed around with it while the signal was on and it suddenly got slower then just stopped. Now when i hit either the left or right signal..the front one just turns off. No blinking of any sort. The brake light wont even light up when i hit the rear or front brake. Help!!

Did you check the wiring harness for the turn signals? On my last bike, the harness had come loose after I installed a fender eliminator kit. I would check that first. I hope this helps!

the front turn signals, and the brake light will turn on. They run. But when i turn the left/right signal on..The front signal turns off..until i press the turn signal button in. The brake lights, light up in there running mode, but dont light up when i press the brake lever or pedal.

yep horn works. When i hit the front brake lever, or the rear brake lever..the brake light doesnt work. If i turn the key..the rear light comes on..but when i hit the brakes the light doesnt get brighter like the brakes are on.

all wire routes for the above mentioned are tied in to turn signal relay via w/g wire (white/green) to check short black and gray terminals with a jumper wire start bike turn on switch if the light does not come on you have a broken wire harness. if the light comes on check for continuity between the green terminal and ground no continuity broken ground wire continuity faulty relay or poor connector

i am no electrical engineer but from the looks of the wire diagram that one w/g wire is tied in to all the effected systems . and the relay is the only electrical unit other than a fuse, connectors or switches . check and make sure bulb is the same as stock hope this helps

thanks rigger..Took a look at the turn signal itself..the wires that go into the bulb were touching..looking they they got ripped out and touched..just put some after market clear turn signals on..looks great. Thanks again..and let me know about that service manual you wanted to send me.
