turn signal help

My bike didnt come with fron turn signals connected. I tried to connect some but they are two wire and the wiring diagram shows that the bike has three wires for the turn signals. How do i hook them up? Do i just not run the constant wire?

Normally the front signals use bulbs with two filaments.
One is for running lights, and the other for turn signals.
If you don't have signals that support running lights, the only use the signal and ground wires, not the running light wire.
Of course, you'll not have front running lights, but your signals should work.

The color codes for the front signals are:

Front right signal:
Green = Ground
Light Blue/White = Running light
Light Blue = Signal

Front left signal:
Green = Ground
Orange/White = Running Light
Orange = Signal

The front signal connectors are color coded similarly.
Light Blue for Right, Orange for Left.

Are you getting power to the signal wires of each front signal?
Since you say you're getting power to the running light wires, then the fuse should not be blown.
Does your brake lights and horn work also? If so, then the fuse is good.
You said your front signals were only 2-wire type, which in that case don't support running lights.
What sort of rear signals are you using?

i am not getting power to the front turn signals. the horn and hi/low beams work. I only checked the running light wire to see if it was getting power. THe rears are the leads from the undertail like this one
