    My 07 Softail Custom recently had the right front turn signal bulb go out. I replaced the bulb, but it does not work right. It is dimmer than normal and when I use it, it flashes the first couple times at normal speed, then after a couple flashes it starts to flash at about twice normal. Aso, using the 4-ways this one is not right, almost seems to go out when it should be bright. Any ideas? It is still under warrany, but I don't want it in the shop too long for them to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Are you sure it is the right bulb. It will fast flash if there is not enough current draw on the circuit.

    I agree about the right bulb not only size but the base of the bulb too.

    Double check the bulb number should be dual contact and clean the socket

    It is the right replacement. I even switched it with the bulb from the left turn signal, (just to rule out that new one may not be right) and same results. New bulb works fine in left signal. Could the turn signal module be going out in it already?
