Right turn signals stay light!!!!!!!!!

My right turn signals stay on except when I turn my right turn signal on then they blink! My left turn signals stay off until I turn the left turn signal on then they blink! Which way is the right way and what causes this! Any help would be appreciated!

Fronts stay on all the time. Rears only go on to blink. You are not specific which ones you're talking about. Given what you said sounds like you need to replace a bulb.

Ok. When I turn my key on to start my bike the front right bulb and the right rear bulb come on and stay on the front left bulb and the rear left bulb are not on! When I turn my right blinker on both front and rear right side blink! When I turn my left blinker on both front and rear blink! I checked the bulbs and all four bulbs looked good and they all blink! This is my first post so wasn't sure about how detailed I should be! Thanks

....so, I would would check for the R-rear bulb not properly inserted, or wrong bulb inserted.

.....Check your L-Front bulb...running light filament may be burned out.

...otherwise , you have a wiring problem.

Good Luck

Is all of the wiring stock on the bike? It kind of sounds like the wire for the front left running light got connected to the rear right signal some how. But like others said, check grounds and bulbs first.

What type of Bulbs are installed?
Fronts should be dual filament bulbs. 1157 bulb
Rears should be single filament bulbs 1156 bulb

If you have LED bulbs in any of the sockets....replace them with the proper bulbs until you are sure the wiring is correct and works properly!

certain LED bulbs can and will bleed voltage back and cause some very strange things to happen.

If you have the proper bulbs in place and you still have problems, then it must be either a bad blinker relay or a wiring problem such as chaffed wiring causing a short. (assuming everything is stock)

edit: and YES...grounds are very important!! check and clean all connections!

Ok! I checked the bulbs they are all good. I talked to the guy I purchased the bike from and he said it was a new wiring harness! But when I pulled the headlight out the connections for the front right turn signal was not connected right! The connectors were different ends crimpe with pliers. So it looks like I am going to be studying the wiring diagram and checking every connection.also any good recommendations on new turn signals thinking about replacing them with LED's, so I'm looking for good turn signals and a good place to buy them!
