Rear Right Turn Signal Stays Lit.

I am stumped.
Rear right turn signal stays lit when the switch sets it off.
Unplugged the Turn Signal Relay, and it still stays lit.
Checked the turn signal switch and it's fine.
Unplugged the connector that goes from the turn signal switch and it still stays lit.
When I unplug the fuse for the turn signals, it goes out.
When I unplug the other connector from the turn signal switch then it goes out.
When I checked the schematic on here it doesn't match up with the connector on the bike.
It shows four wires on the connector but the one on my bike has six wires.
Different color also.
My bike is a 1998 Honda Superhawk 996.
Does anyone have the correct wire diagram?
And are there any ideas on what I can check.

Turn Sigal Problem

I believe you have a bad ground going to your tail light section. Your Right Indicator light is acting like a ground and will illuminate the bulb. Do you have LED indicator lights?

No, the ones that I am putting on the back are incandescent.
The weird thing is that when I unplugged the front right turn signal and the back light went off.
I swapped the front turn signals and now it's all working fine????
I don't know what the issue was?
