I agree -- first step is to spray contact cleaner into the switch. If that doesn't fix your lack of RH blinkers, the next step is to find the electrical connectors that are between the switch and the blinker. I think some are in the headlight bucket. Once you locate the electrical connector(s), pull them apart and carefully sand them shiny with a small fine file. Gently squeeze the female connector shut a little bit so it grips the male end tightly.



These bikes are 30ish years old now. Over time, the myriad little plugs get corrosion on them and as a result, don't conduct electricity as well as they would if the metal was clean and shiny.
