Turn Signal Out

Rear turn signals were both working, I noticed that the right signal has stopped working. Are there some steps I can take to look for the problem? Checked verses but didn't see anything on this. Thanks!

The front signals both work, the rear signals had been working but only the left one is currently working. Yes I will check the bulb that's easy should've thought of it. Is there a good guide somewhere on how to remove rear signals?

I think it will just blink quicker if the rear one burns out.

Hey so I played with it last night. The funny thing is that it blinks fine when I put on the hazards. But when I use the right signal alone it will not work. The front signals are both fine, and the rear left is fine. Just the rear right won't work on its own. Does this make any sense?

I have a Voyager trike kit on it with its own set of coffin signals on each of the trike tire fenders. And they both work fine, but I am not sure it will pass inspection without the bike's own rear signals working - any thoughts?

Unscrewed the turn signal lens easily, and there was an additional screw on the inside of the housing I unscrewed too, but I could not figure out how to get the bulb out. I wanted to swap bulbs with the left rear to see if that had any impact. Not sure how to get that bulb out though. Pulled it pretty hard but didn't wanna break it in case that's not the right way to do it.

also,look at the bulb.there is a little metal filament inside the glass. it should be connected at both sides with no breaks in it
