you need to check the ground to the turn signal lamp housings.

the rear harness connector is under the seat, by the rear fender. the harness is routed under the fender to the tail light assembly, then up to the turn signal lamp housings.

make sure the ground is solid, that the harness is not being rubbed by the rear tire an that it gets through the tail lamp assembly to the sockets.

let me know if you need more help.
