Go to Autozone or pep Boys and get a Trideant EL 12 variable load flasher. It is a 2 prong flasher. The stock flasher has 3 wires. The black wire is ground and is not needed with the EL 12. Just plug the 2 other wires (do not remember color) into the EL 12 and you are set. The flasher is located on the right in the front fairing; you can get to it without removing the fairing from underneath. The nice advantage to the EL 12 is that you can go with after market LED and it will flash at a normal rate
without using load equalizers in your circuit.
The EL 12 works for all bikes with aftermarket directionals to maintain normal blinking rate and cost around $8.00 !!!!
