    Default Only right turn signals work?

    I got some new led turn signals. This is not my first rodeo. I've installed several different sets of turn signals on this bike and never had a problem. I've had the flasher relay hooked up for over a year. I don't have hyper flashing. I hooked up the left front and it was working. Then I hooked up the right front. It was working. Then I switched it back to the left and nothing. I tested all 4 of the new signals and they all work. The left side doesn't seem to be getting power. Maybe the flasher relay is bad?

    You could try tracing the wiring back up into the headlight bucket and check to see if the wire is grounding out or you pulled a ground out.

    Everything is already apart. The headlight bucket is off and I can see everything.

    I figured it out. There was no power getting past the gray connector in the pic. The flasher relay is good. I don't feel anything loose on the gray connector, but it refuses to let any current through even when I press on it. I can get power where the alligator clips are.

    Make sure the pins inside haven't broken. Maybe take that connector apart and clean the terminals, check for corrosion or just a poor mechanical connection. Check all connections (soldering or taps) from where you have power down. Seems like you know what you're doing. Confident you'll find the issue.
