Right blinker blinks faster than left

Had my Vulcan 900 for less than a year. One day the right blinker started blinking twice as fast as the left one. Any ideas on what could be causing it and if there is an easy solution?

Is one of your right side bulbs burned out?

I had the same problem only with the left blinker. In my case what was happening was the front left bulb was not seated into the socket very well and causing the bulb to blink faster.

the rapid blinking on your tank indicator is to alert you that one or both of your signals are not working properly. Turn on the signal and check both your front and rear signal lights, and you'll spot the problem. Sometimes, the wiring harnesses aren't connected tightly enough after the initial assembly, so check that before replacing bulbs.
