left side works fine- front and rear right side signals stay on and dont flash.
originally the blinkers would turn on and off automatically and randomly no matter if i hit signal switches or not. I replaced the module and now have the problem in the description line. the right side lights even stay on when i pull the module connector plug. when i check the connector pin for the right side incoming power it works just like it should according to the manual. i show 12 volts when i hit the switch and 0 when i dont. What would keep the rear signal light on?

The filament in the bulbs for turn signals and breaks is the same one. The bulbs light up when either the break switch or the flasher module supply a ground, or remove the ground. IF the right side stays lit even when the module is removed it would appear that there is a ground still present on the right side. Look at the bulbs, sockets and the switch in the handle bars. If all that fails, HELLO DEALER

Good Luck

Is it possible the wrong bulbs are inserted? Maybe like 1156 instead of 1157 (or vice versa)?

Ground. It's always a ground.
