Offhand, in most bikes, the tailight and the brake light are integrated in a single bulb with a common ground. This would translate then into a 3wire arrangement. The brighter of the filaments is for the brake while the dimmer of the two is for the park/running/tail light. To my knowledge, either the tail or brake lights do not use a relay, they are wired straightforward. Your described problem all points to a mis-connection, possibly the ground wire. The easiest approach would be to identify the ground wire. With ignition switch off, all light switches off, identify the ground wire with the use of a continuity tester (VOM/DVM). Disconnect the wires to the harness, on the harness, it would be the wire with nearly 0 resistance against any exposed metal or the chassis. On the wires going to the tailight assy, it wold be the wire that measures 0 ohms to the metal socket/housing of the bulb.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Check the rear bulbs.If they are working (brakes+lights) check the wires.For the turn signals, override the flasher relay.If they are coming on then you need to replace the relay.If not then check the left hand side clip on switch.

Make sure that the rear light fuse is not blown
If not trace the brown wire from the rear lights & check for continuity between lamp holder & fuse
As its both rear lights & front sidelights it will not be an earth fault
Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)
