There's the problem, if that's the case.

Did you by any chance connect the running light positive also to the fronts?

I just browsed through the Amazon link you sent. If you scroll down it states that they’re flashers only and not to be used for daytime running lights. So back to the wiring, if you hooked up all 3 wires something is shorting depending on switch position, that’s why the front are basically turning off when you turn on your signal. Also I noticed in your video that your signal indicators are constantly on, that’s not normal. They should flash with the signals. So you can either remove the running light lead as use them as flashers only, or replace the front pair. Again the relay is for the flash rate and will not fix both issues.

That must be it! Let me get you a picture of the front light wiring. I thought it was weird that the front lights were on despite them not being useable for running lights.

What do I do with the running light wires if they aren't connected to anything? Splice them together?

Electrical tape on exposed ends of running light wires to prevent shorts. Don't tie them together.

Took a look at the bike on break. I got the wiring fixed up. The front and back signals now both light up solid. I might still need that relay.

One review said the bulbs are low amps. Probably need the relay Spockster listed. They also said these bulbs burn out quick and aren't true 1156. Might start looking for replacements!

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong. But I thought only the front were running lights and always lit. Thought the rear only flashed when the signal is on. I never bothered to notice haha
