Turn signals don't blink(light up solid) and brake light works half way of the lever

Hey, guys, I am trying to fix the mess of the previous owner and here is whats happening(its an 06 600RR):
1) All the turn signals just light up solid with no blink when I turn them on, there are is kind of some action trying to go on but stay solid basically(blinking very very fast), so is there a way to adjust it or do I need a new relay or something?

2) The brake light lights up only the first half of the lever squeeze movement and turns off after, is there an adjustment for the front brake switch or I just need a new one?

3) When I take the front wheel off(prev. owner was running the bike with one rotor in the front and now I am putting it the way its supposed to be) do you have to align it or anything after you put it back on?

Thank you for all your help.

As far as the turn signals go, you need to wire in some resistors, I'm guessing they are LEDs? Do you have the stock brake light or does it have blinkers built in?

So, do I just loop the resistors in(I mean do I connect it to the green wire and loop it to the yellow one?) also, do I need resistors for the front ones as well(they are LEDs too)? 8 Ohm is good enough? Thank you again!

So I solved the blinker problem, tried to add resistors for the hell of it and now its fine, before they were blinking so fast that seemed to be solid.

Now the brake lever/switch problem remains, the brake still lights up only with lever squeezed first 30% of the travel distance and then the light turns off, is the a way to adjust the brake switch or should I order a new one? Again, thank you for the help :)

Check the switch that is behind the brake lever, sounds like it's installed wrong or it's damaged.. DO you have aftermarket levers?

You need a load resistor for each side or a LED relay to run them. The relay is by far the better option...
