My 2000 softail obviously has a short in it. I recently installed turned signals on front and back. Both left sides work, front right running light works, but neither right signals work. However I took it to get fuel and just out of curiousity I tried right side and it worked. Once. Are there any common pinch points to start looking for shlorts?

it's the grounds if they're both flashing fast it's definitely grounds take a test light and see if its got power goes through the test light grounded to the frame and if the light comes on then it's definitely your grounds
First, I'd try replacing the bulbs in both the front and rear turn signals. See what happens, that's pretty inexpensive to try.
The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. You didn't mention if the problem was on just one side or if it was on both sides of the bike. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try it. The reason, they're expensive. The last one I installed cost nearly $150.
Hi! The reason for the indicators not flashing is that there isn't enough resistance to load the flasher unit, it need 4X21Watt bulbs making at total of 84Watts for it to work correctly. It may work with less but will flash erratically. Hope this helped? Press the Blue Button please to appraise my FREE! Effort. Thank Y

I'm new to this site but actually has fielded a question about a Triumph motorcycle I'm worrking on!
I have an '03 Anniversary Deuce and I ran into (not the exact) but similar problem. My bike has the bars internally wired from the grips all the way through the top triple tree. Somehow over time the turn signal wire got shorted "internally". You might want to just unbolt the turn signal switch from the bars to see if the wire got pinched up high. If not...move the wires around to see if that helps. If it does...ultimately you should re-wire the connections. Just my experience...good luck!
