as stated before still having blinker trouble blinkers will not blink when you push either right or left blinker the 4 way flasher starts making all 4 turn signals blink at same time you can push on the blinker cancel switch and all lights go off also removed handle bar switch cluster and opened it up and cleaned still same problem also removed hazard switch could not clean switch because it is braded shut no screws ran WD-40 into switch worked switch on/off about 17 times ran some alcohol through switch and let dry plugged back in and still same problem...HELP TRIED TO TEST SWITCH BUT GOT CONFUSED there are 8 wires on the plug.

I would also check your front light bulbs. Try removing them one at a time to see if the problem goes away. Sometimes the filaments in the bulb, If it is a dual filament bulb touch causing a cross feed. Also check to see if the bulbs are correct. If someone stuck a single contact bulb in place of a dual contact bulb again you get a cross feed or a short to high which is not the same as a short to ground or low. Also some dual contact bulbs are still single filament used in plastic sockets were one contact on the bulb serves as NEG and the other serves as POS, these bulbs though they have a double contact will only have a single filament. If one of these bulbs were mistakenly stuck in Which is not uncommon you again get a cross feed. If all this checks out than you will need to check your wiring. Start with looking to see if it was ever wired for a trailer. wires that have been poorly twisted and tapped can corrode and the green substance that accumulates can migrate creating a path for voltage to follow also check to see if it once had a trailer harness and check to see if it was cut back and carelessly tapped over some wire ends could be touching. Disconnect the four way flasher switch to see if it has an internal short causing a cross feed. It is a small slide switch mounted on the right side If none of this brings results than your down to using the wiring schematics noted earlier and tracing your circuits paying close attention to connectors which can fill with green corrosion causing cross feeds  or were wires may have rubbed together.
