Help with lights...

When I first got the bike, the wiring was kinda backwards. I put the left turn signal on and the front right blinker would blink along with the left rear. When I put the right turnal signal on, NOTHING would blink. indicators on the panel were working just fine though. I tried messing with the tun signal cables and now when I move the signal either way nothing is blinking except the left turn indicator and that is blinking 2x faster than it should be. nothing happens on the right still. Can someone help with some pics of the correct wiring set up for the '86 CA model? Any suggestions or info would rock! Also, if someone could give info and a pic of the fusebox (I think I have some missing fuses) it could help out a lot.

Don't have a camera, but I'll try to give a description. There are four fuses mounted vertically; the lower right (as you face the fuse box) is a 30 amp. The others are 10 amp.

There are two fuses mounted horizontally; these are spares, so you should have a 10 and a 30 in there in case you need either one.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

this may sound silly but check all your bulbs and connections the flasher works off of load and if it doesn't have enough it will blink fast or not at all check your light grounds also.when you make sure your bulbs aren't blown and have good connections put the CLEAN connections back together with dielectric Grease ,available at most automotive supply stores.

If you see it on my bike I did it

I had this problem when I got my bike. I found the wire for the right rear blinker pinched between the frame and fender with the insulation worn off. Causing it to ground. Loosened the fender, moved the wire, some heat shrink, and problem solved. You might check.
