650 turn signal problems

new to the forum from northern IL. could use a little help please. I have a turn signal problem with my 650 classic. front signals work ok and the right rear works ok. left rear flashes very fast. replaced all bulbs on bike with same result. swapt rear left and right lights and problem remains. if I remove the right rear light from the circut, the left now opperates properly. I am guessing that the Denso flasher unit is malfunctioning and overloading on the rear circut, but just a guess.... any input would be greatly appreciated...getting very frustrated

The flasher unit does not know which side it is feeding, so not likely. Sounds more like a bad ground.

I had a similar problem but on the front - the socket was bad and was easy to replace once you find the part. Got mine off ebay but took a long time to find.
