Brake light and turn signal indicator problem

I have an 09 600rr with an iwin integrated taillight and hotbodies front turn signal. Not running resistors or an led flasher relay.

Here's the problem: When I pull my brake lever, the right turn signal indicator on my dash lights up. The turn signal itself does not turn on, just the light on the dash. Right turn signal works as it should as does the left.

Things I have tried: I checked my fuses (all good), unplug the front turn signals (same problem), go back to stock rear fender set up (same problem).

After I installed the whole lighting setup it worked perfectly. I hit a table-top speed bump/cross walk at quite a bit of speed and thats when it started happening.

Are these headlights plug and play or do you have to do the wiring yourself?

The taillight was plug and play, the front turn signals I did the wiring myself into stock connectors.

Just so we are covering everything. ON the hotbody signals there are 2 wires. On the bike there are 3 wires. Are the hotbody signals just on when you signal or are they running/signals?

They are only on when I signal. I only hooked up the strobe and negative wires on the hotbodies.

If you switch the signal wire to the other side on the taillight does the problem switch to the other side?

I would put that on the taillight being the problem. Something in the wiring is causing the signal to trigger.

so I disconnected my iwin taillight, the problem stopped. I hooked up my stock light setup and it worked as it should. So it is the taillight itself. Any idea what it could be?

You need resistors, my bike does the same thing, all led all around is too little resistance and it won't even flash quickly, it just won't flash

^ no he doesn't, his tail light is stuffed. Power is being shorted from the brake light to the turn signal.

Got it fixed. Took it apart and replaced the capacitor and re-did the crappy soldering job it came with. Works as it should now. Thanks for ya'lls help. (flasher relay is next on my list to fix the fast blinking)
