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.

My turn signals do not work. I have power from my flasher relay to my turn signal switch. At the switch there are 3 wires I assume one is direct power from the battery and the other two are for each...

Hi, Jdbutler03 before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

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.

one of two thing's comes to mind, either inside the Headlamp,(or) under the gas tank, you either have a loose wire, or a blown fuse, I suggest trying the "headlamp" first since it takes a hell of a beating, going down the road, please let me know if this got ya setor not, god bless, and safe riding
