Blinker problem

I've got a 2008 ninja 250...i bought the bike needing some fairings to be replaced and painted so i took them off and also got rid of that big license plate bracket so i wired in led strips for rear blinkers looks great and worked great but when i plugged the dash back in now all 4 blinkers just come on and stay on...i think my relay was bad when i bought the bike cause they didn't blink so i put a new one in and still all come on and stay on as soon as i unplug the dash one side comes on at a time but still doesn't blink...could it by any chance be my switch idk it just doesn't make sense

It's the LED's.

Since you've got LED's, you need to install an electronic flasher. They run about $4-$8 at your local auto parts store. Just make sure it has connections for two wires (power and ground).

The stock flasher is not electronic and will work improperly whenever LED's are hooked up

Yeah your LED strips aren't drawing enough power for even the electronic relay to work properly. You have a few choices: One, try to double up each side's LED strips to draw more..or get regular aftermarket LED turn signals and install those in addition to (or better instead of) the existing strips.
