I think its more likely a bad earth at the headlight, the current is leaking back via indicator. Black wires are earth on the Townmate so check earth connections to frame, & try a seperate earth from headlamp bulb holder. A poor earth at headlight will also result in poor light output.

I think they mean the spring clips on the brake anchor arm nuts. (No 24 on diagram http://www.vespaspares.co.uk/spares/epc2.asp?ModelID=9063&pageID=27&m=YAMAHA+T80+TOWNMATE+REAR+WHEEL&uid=0 )
Like wise split pins must be in place on the wheel spindles in the castle nuts.
