Giving up "Bells" 1200GL limited edition

I have reached that stage in life when I have to give up some of my toys, and one of them is my Limited edition. I have not ridden it in probably 5 years and that is sad, but it's life. I am in the process of cleaning servicing etc, and discovered that the turn signals do not flash, all of the lights come on properly, including the cornering lights, but no flash. I have the tank cover off and for the life of me I can't find the flasher. In the past, I did extensive work on this bike and have had everything off of it including the fairing, but if someone can just help with the location of the flasher before I pull out the last of my hair.

Thanks

Ben

Thanks...hoping one of the other Limited edition drivers have encountered this, as a lot of the 'stuff" is different on these jewels.

If it's not the flasher unit, check to see if the bulb sockets have rusted or the switch needs cleaning. A bad ground might cause this also.

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.

To confirm it is the flasher unit, you can swap it for the 4 way flasher. It is the relay on the left side of the bracket. If you need to replace the flasher relay it is still available from Honda, but you need to order P/N 38301-MBW-D21. Make sure it has a 3 pin connection.

Ordered flasher last night, in the meantime, just cleaning, changing fluids, since old "Bells" has been sitting idle for a while.
