Are most of the relays on the 1500 the same or is there a couple different ones?
The relays in the relay box are the same except the position relay (NC).

And the other relays on the bike are almost different from each other, although there are some relay pairs.

*Reverse sw relay, Cruise valve relay: 38380-MN5-003 RELAY (20A) G8MS-H37
*Relay box 7 relays: 38370-MN5-003 RELAY (20A) G8MS-H30 (Hyundai hmc deko 95220-22100)
*Relay box Position light relay: 38360-MN5-003 RELAY (10A) NC G8MS-H35
*Cornering light relays: 38365-MN5-811 RELAY (10A) NC G8MS-H34
*Reverse power 1,2 and speed limit relay: 38501-KG8-004 RELAY, STARTER G4R-H24
*Starter relay A: 35850-MK3-671 SW, STARTER MAGNETIC
*Starter relay B: 35850-MT8-000 SW, STARTER MAGNETIC

Discussion Starter #3
I was told that I should keep a spare I believe it was #3 relay or 2, just want to make sure to get the correct 1. I had side cover off last week but couldn't figure out how to remove fuse box cover, only had couple minutes before I had to get moving and haven't checked again.

You will need to at least loosen the bolts for the left saddle bag, and maybe remove them, so you can move the bag out some to get that relay box cover off. Seems like a poor design but that's the way it is.
Here is a good source for the relays. Much cheaper than Honda charges for them and it is rated at 40 amps instead of the 20 amps for the oem relay.

Actually you don't need to carry a spare one with you. In case of a need you can remove and use the relay of the air compressor.

But it would be better to have a spare one in your stocks since it is hard to find.

You can find and use the relay hmc deko 95220-22100 used on 1990-1999 model Hyundai/Kia cars as a replacement. They are exactly the same as OEM, I opened up one of them and examined the parts inside.

GL1500 Relays

All the following relays will fit in the Tail Main Relay # 3 position.

Pilot # PL-RY1 (Auto Zone)
Pilot # PL-RY-1 “NV-RY1, on Package” (at Pep Boys)
BWD # R4136 (O'Reilley Auto Parts)
HMC DEKO 95220-22100 (Hyundai Car relay)
G8MS H-30 (Auto Zone, Advance Auto)

The footprint is the same as the OEM relay. The Pilot is slightly larger (physically) so you can't put three in a row, and it is rated at 30-amps. You just cut off the mounting tab.

I carry a spare Pilot relay in my trunk.
