Default Electrical issues on the 07 Z1000

I've been meaning to post about it, but I've kept on forgetting.

My low beam goes on and off randomly. I'll jiggle the connection a little bit here and there but I can't get it to come on when I want it to. The previous owner did put some after market bulbs in there, but I'm not sure if that would mess things up like it has. Also, my rear turn signals are no longer working. When I first got the bike, only the left rear turn signal worked. (Didnt realize it until after the papers were signed.)
Now neither rear turn signal works. Granted, it does have an aftermarket tail light that includes the turn signals. Once again, I tried jiggling what wires I could see and nothing happened. Any suggestions?

The bike has been down once but it wasn't major.

For the headlight I'd try slinging a new globe in it often what happens is the filament breaks then spot weld its self back together. The headlight will slowly get dimmer and eventually fail completely.

With the tail lights it would be worth checking how the original owner hooked them into the existing bikes wiring some people have some interesting idea's on what makes a good connection. The other possibility is they were the cheapest and nastiest thing they could find on e-bay and they have simply failed do you know if they are LED or incandescent bulb?

On the rear they're LEDs. On the front, I've thought about buying a new bulb and trying that...but it would just seem that if it was the filament that it wouldn't make it as long as it has going off and on. But that's just me
