There is only so much that can be wrong with a turn signal system, because it is so simple. If the turn signals work at all, that rules out the bulbs and individual light sockets. Your problem is either in the switch, a loose connection in the wiring (either hot or ground), or a bad flasher unit. Because motorcycle handlebars turn, and the wiring has to turn with them, I have seen numerous cases where the wires rubbed against the frame or some other edge, and wore through the insulation, grounding it out. Connectors are also subject to corrosion.
