Just noticed my front turn signal flashing in double time due to my rear turn signal being out.
I swapped my rear bulbs to see if the bulb was burned out, and it still didnt work thus ruling out a burnt bulb.
Normally I troubleshoot these things on my own, but I am extremely busy the next few weeks with travel, work and school.
I tried searching the forum but couldnt find a direct answer.
I ride in Milwaukee where horrible drivers are as common as Packer fans, so I'm definitely not riding till I get this fixed.
Any suggestions on what it is and how to fix it?
Thank you!

The bulbs are easy to get in wrong, I had to turn the signal on and play with it some. Otherwise the harness runs under the fender to the right side cover and you have 3 seperate wire bundles, 2 small and one large. The 2 small ones are the signals (just 2 wires each), be a good place to check with a test light there.

Problem Solved. It was a severed wire wrapped in electrical tape under the rear fender.
Of course, that was the last thing I checked after cleaning the switch and swapping the wires to isolate the fault.
Thanks for the replies.
