Okay I’ll see if I can do that today. Bc yesterday I tried it with the bike started to see if could be not enough voltage or so and they still stay solid.

I was going mention they all don’t come on at same time. It’s just the ones I selected the front and back instead of all 4. But when I switch it from left to right now of them blink they stay solid

I checked to see if the turn signals bulb was leds and they didn’t seem to be. So I’ve still not found out the issue. Does anyone know other causes than would make them stay solid instead of flickering?

You need to know for sure if they are LED or not before you can proceed with the issue. Pull the bulb out and look at it. If it has a filament, a wire across the two post inside the glass, it is incandescent. LED will be a small chip on a circuit board. LED will only work if hooked up one way to the voltage, while incandescent will work even if hooked up the opposite way. If you can't remove the bulb or it is a sealed type unit, hook it up to a battery both ways to check it. I hope that helps.

I did. I also pulled my bulbs and indicator relay off my 04 bike to put on the 01 to see and be certain and no matter what I’ve tried their still staying solid when I turn them on.

Is it an aftermarket electronical flasher unit?
If the B (+12 from battery) and L (load/Lights) are connectec backwards the electronic ones stay on and don't flash.

Are you meaning the wires? Coming from the turn signals? I’m not sure if the front ones are after market or not bc that was already on when bought the bike. But I order some saddle boxes that had turn signals built in them.

Correct, if you have these 2 wires switched the unit gives you steady on lights instead of flashing
