Bulb Malfunction

New bike, 200 miles. Got on it this morning with 50 miles on the odometer. Got a front bulb malfunction warning. All headlight bulbs burning, left turn signal okay. Right turn signal flashes once on the dash and at the bulb, but that's it. Right rear doesn't flash at all. Four way flashers not operational. Switched the front left and right bulbs; left still works fine but right flashes once then goes dead like before. Any ideas?

Found it. Lamp malfunction warning on the dash was pointing forward indicating malfunction was in the front. The right front turn signal bulb would flash once then quit. The right rear bulb wouldn't light at all. All bulbs front and rear were functional. While checking the right rear bulb found that the wiring leading to the socket was pinched badly by whoever installed the luggage rack. Took off the luggage rack and routed the wires the way they should have been in the first place, then placed electrical tape around the bare exposed wire. Now the dealer's got something else to do besides the first service on Wednesday.

Mileage was 13 when purchased. 37 miles put on by me from dealership to home.
