On your bike they may be cornering lights that come on with the signal. Assuming we are talking about the same lights.

In 1998 those lights changed from cornering (on with signal) to driving lights - on with ignition.

If yours aren't working the likely case is that the bulbs are burned out. Very common.

Best thing to do is replace them with an LED bulb.
