Question about Motorcycles
Hello im Alberto just got a new undertail brake light work but when i connect the signal lights they just stay on does not blink. I noticed my front right signal bulb blew could that be the reason the back signal light just stay on
I'm not very familiar with motorcycle stuff, but, using my experience with autos, yes.... if one turn signal light bulb quits working.. the other one just comes on and doesn't blink. It takes the resistance of two bulbs to keep the flasher unit cycling... One won't do it..

sounds like a poor ground issue, pull out the headlight and check all connections in there, your turn signals are on seperate feeds than the lights but they will probably share the same ground/earth in the headlight

you may want to trace your wires to that light and check to make sure that your ground wire for that side is clean and tight that may take care of your problem all together

spray contact cleaner on the switch and with the brake lever removed push your finger on the switch and work it .On mine I twisted the switch a little with my finger while the switch was pushed in and got it working.fine

The marker ("running") lights are a separate circuit than the signal lights.
Normally you have a tail light, and the front running lights on with the headlight.
The bulbs used in the rear signal lights would be a single filament 1156 bulb, whereas the bulbs in the front are dual filament, one for turn signal, one for running light.
