Can you post a picture with the rubber boot pulled back so we can see the wire colors inside?

Quite a mess you have there. Connect those 2 black wires with the green bands to the green wire in the harness, connect the black wire from the left to the orange wire, connect the black wire from the right to the light blue wire.

Thank you Dave. I connected the wires as you said and all of the colours were as you said they would be.

Only problem is it still isn't working. The front and rear right turn signals stay on solid without flashing - can hear the click once. On the left the from turn signal is solid but nothing from the rear. I checked the globe and it is fine.

It had a tow kit which I presume explains the left over wires.

Any suggestions Dave?

The bottom of the image is the rear of the bike.

That sounds like a bad ground. Any time I mess with my tail light wiring harness, I have to re-seat the grounds to get the turn signals to work properly and they do the same thing you are describing. It might be at the connection under the seat or in the tail light.

Pull the plugs of the green wires, clean them up, and plug them back in again. Also make sure the plugs are not stretched out too much.

Do you have a test light or volt meter to check for power at the light socket?

Here are a few things I would check if it were mine. Battery charge, correct bulbs, and all the grounds.

Yes it will cause them to not flash but does not explain the lack of a left rear light. Best thing to do is replace the flasher with an automotive electronic one.

Do they work when you rev it up some? If so then...

Your avatar tells me your front turn signals are in your non Hondaline fairing, check the left rear fairing mounting stud, that's most likely where the fairing ground all comes together.

If one end doesn't work then that side won't flash, both bulbs & both bulb grounds on each side have to be good for each side to flash.
