does your bike have a single indicator bulb in the instrument console to tell you when the indicators are on? Some bikes have 2 lights in the instrument panel(a left and a right) but some have a single bulb, if you have a single bulb, the bulb will pass enough current that LED lights on both sides of the motorcycle will come on together. A simple test would be to remove the bulb in the instrument panel and see if the indicators then work normally. If you have 2 lights (a left & right) in the instrument panel, then this is not the cause.. Can't see why it would have worked for a while and then stopped working!! I am guessing you have 2 bulbs in the instruments and the above is not your issue, but wanted to suggest it in case it was. Also surprised dirty switch contacts would cause this issue!!
