I'm at work, and don't have the bike here, but the turn signals are a fairly simple circuit. Each rear turn signal has 2 wires. All the wires are color coded, so it is impossible to hook them up wrong. There are no wire nuts in the factory wire harness, which means someone has messed with it. Before you do anything else, locate the 2 wires coming from each rear turn signal, connect one to 12V, the other to ground. (polarity doesn't matter in this case, the light bulb doesn't care which way the current passes through it) If the lights come on, then the lights themselves are ok, and so is the wiring up to the point where you connected it to power and ground. Try that first and see what happens. Also, what about the front turn signals, which also serve as running lights. Do they come on? Does the indicator on the instrument panel come on? Keep in mind that with the stock flasher unit, both turn signals on each side have to work in order to create enough resistance to make them flash properly. Jerry.
