They are bulbs. (Halogen), I know they blink when I first put them on. I did notice that they are a single filament. In the front I've read that they should be two? Also, I took one of the wires from the new light off and the rear now works crazy?

A link would be nice, too.

Yep, since the front are used as turn signals and running lights, they will have two filiments. The rear are just flashers and will have only one filiment. Normaly due to bulb type, one will not install in the other because the pins are spaced different on the bulbs.
Like Sfair mentioned give us some numbers and pics if available.

Sounds as though you don't have a ground. If you replaced the turn signal with an automotive one you likely need to ground it. When I replaced mine with the Single Minder relay to automatically turn the flash off after 20 seconds they provided a sparate ground wire that I had to install as the OEM relay does not require a ground wire. There is a good ground point on the right side under the battery cover they have already installed a couple of ground wires.
