Just went thru this with my bike. Make sure you have the correct wattage and the correct type in each hole.
The rear bulbs are single element 21W. The front bulbs are double element 23W/8W. Having a lower wattage will make it fast blink. I purchased aftermarket rear blinkers and they blinked fast. Ordered new relay and that wasn't problem. Dumb me, the aftermarket blinkers had very low wattage bulbs in them. Put the right bulbs in and all is well. Hopefully same for you. And AutoZone, O'reillys don't have them. I ended up ordering them online.
The blinker indicator light may just be corroded or loose or bulb burned out. They usually work unless the PO had the electrical jacked up. Sometimes the plug under the meter housing didn't get plugged in tight when tank was removed. Let us know.
