Put something like a 15 or 20 ohmm resistor in parallel with one of the turn signals on each side. The current draw of the signals will still be pretty low but the indicator light will begin working again. Another alternative would be to wire up two indicator lights in parallel with the turn signal circuits, one for right and one for left. These could be 12V LEDs. If you can see the top of the signal lens from the normal riding position, then the indicator light is unnecessary of course.
