03CBR electrical problem

Hey guys I have an 03cbr600 and am experiencing some electical problems. At the biker rally someone knocked off my left rear turn signal. They're flush mounted and I hate whoever did it.....anyway. The wires pulled out of it and were hanging like someone tried to steal it and left it on the ground. Well now my turnsignals don't work at all and don't even register that the turn signal is on. The horn doesn't work either, neither does the brake light.

Does anyone have any clues. Maybe it's just a fuse, or do you think that I shorted something out when the wires touched each other?

Fuse is blown.
There's three wires on he Honda front turn signal / running light circuit, the GREEN is ground the other 2 blue or orange depending on the side, are your power wires. Make sure they are taped up and not shorting against anything.

How many wires on the turnsignal; 2 or 3?

On Hondas green is ground, solid orange or solid blue is your turnsignal positive depending on the side and orange with a white stripe or blue with a white stripe is your running light positive.

Thanks for the info Patrick.

Actually the wires are all still in place up front, they just snapped at the rear taillight. But I fudged up the small piece that the wires go in trying to get the old one out so I think I'm just gonna have to buy a whole new set.
