Welcome wato08 with a hidden profile,have you tried the indicators with the bulb removed?
Can you see if one of the two the filaments (wires inside the bulb) are broke?
Can you see any bare/cut/worn wires leading to the rear light or indicators?
The bulb has offset holding pins and twin soldered live nipples/connections if what you say.
**solid indicators **
Cheers for the reply Jaffa 90 ive sorted the rear light out (it was a loose connection under the seat pan, however the indicators are still solid scratching my head at this one. Any advice would be appreciated.
Profile,no need for photo pics or real name,just age/bikes/area as in Lancashire.
I`m scratching my head now and i`ve more hair than you (just).Solid flashers can mean low voltage going to them (more so on tickover),or too higher wattage bulbs (yours did work).Also if current is going somewhere else in the circuits.Still confused i would check all flasher bulbs/connectors for corrosion.
Remember that more electrical resistance you have in a flasher circuit the more chance the flasher relay will work (bi-metal strip).

This sounds like just a duff battery,are you using the kick starter because the bike wont start on the button? if so you just need a good battery and your problems will be solved.If it is a dead battery and you persist in using the kick start,(no problem doing this with a good battery)the charge system will work itself to death trying to charge a duff battery and damage the regulator rectifier and eventually the lighting coils.Good Luck
