Classic symptoms of at least one pinched wire, especially the ACC fuse that keeps blowing. Take the switch housings apart and look for flattened/bare spots on the wires that result from being pinched between the clamp and the bar. Pay extra close attention to where the wires enter and exit the bar.

I have a 2010 RG Custom service manual. Wiring for a 12 might be different, but if you don't get any help here and want me to, I'll try to scan the wiring diagram for you.

Per the '11 manual fig. B20, Right Signal O/W (Position 1 on plug) & W/BN (5)
on the Left Signal O/W (1) & W/V (5), Horm O/W (1) & Y/BK (6)

Second the check for a crimped wire at the switch housing. Kept blowing headlight fuses found a crimped wire on the left side.

One final suggestion, purchase a manual. Best $60 I've spent so far.

I ride a Road Glide. Therefore I am!

Will the brake light come on if you use the rear pedal?

The brake switch for the front brake lever is easy to damage during installation of the grips/housings. That will not take care of your other issues, but may explain the brake light not working.

The other issues are either crossed wires in the plugs (double check to make sure they are back in the same location they came from) or pinched/shorted wires.

I have done the wiring in a poorly lit garage before and it is easy to cross some of the darker colored wires (at least for my old eyes).
