That is because the 3rd wire is for the driving lights and the hazard if you change the position of the power wire you will lose the blinkers and have the other result

How do I replace front indicators on a kawasaki GPZ 1100 1998? Thanks.

GPZ1100 was built from 1981 to 1985.
If you have a 1998 ZX1100, there is a retaining screw in the front of the signal lamp lens to remove it ftom the fairing.
You may want to splice the old wire connectors onto your new signals if you're not going stock.

Left coil feeds 1 and 4...right coil feeds 2 and long as you stick to this it doesn't matter which lead goes to which plug. Left coil will have one short lead and one long...short =1...long = 4. Right coil leads will be about even in length...doesn't matter which goes to 2 or 3.
It's a wasted spark system so plugs 1 and 4 fire together...2 and 3 fire together...only 1 cylinder in each pair will be compressed and ready to fire when the spark happens, the other will be empty and coming on to it's inlet stroke...

Directional lights not working. Front directiional lights are on and back are not. they also do not blink.

check the wiring plug to the rear lights. the front ones wont blink unless the rears are working, they need the right current draw through the flasher for it to flash.
Unlikely but it can also be two rear indicator bulbs blown.

92 nighthawk LED blinker problems.

Honda always grounds the turn signals separately (usually a green wire)not directly to the frame.Not hooking up the running light should not effect anything except forward visibility to other motorists. If you have a two prong flasher relay, go get a cheap flasher relay ($5-$10) and replace it. The only problem I have ever heard of when switching to LED turn signals is a flicker / fast flash instead of a normal slow flash. This is remedied by adding diodes to the wires.
