By reading posts it looks like you guys have had a busy winter working on bikes.  I have had a busy spring and just got around to firing up and riding my 78F.
One problem.  The left turn signal is sluggish and the right does not work at all.  I think I may need a new relay.  Questions are - and they should be easy for you pro's - where is the relay located and where do I get a new one.

Thanks and I hope you are planning another trip to CT again this year.

Regards,

Rob

Hey Rob,

It should be located in a rubber hanging from the battery box.  For some reason i remember there being a second one, but that is probably crazy talk.  In terms if getting a replacement, the OEM ones are still available and $20 which is ridiculous.  I am positive you can get a replacement at NAPA for like $5, but i am not sure which one you need exactly.  I think Chris knows.

Hey Rob,

Why don't you make a trip to MA?  Cool

Any two prong relay would work better than stock. This one would be just fine - http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Prong-Electronic-Turn-Signal-Flasher-Relay-EF32-Two-Pins-Round-25-Amps-/131186696636?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1e8b5621bc&vxp=mtr

Hey Rob,

Any Auto parts store carry these relays - yours is likely still the stock therma flasher (flashing rate depends on engine RPMs) whereas the newer ones are electronic flashers and depend on the battery. The 2-prong 12-V ones work just fine.

Good luck! And yes will see you in CT or MA this summer!

cheers

Thanks!  You guys are a great resource.
Perhaps we can meet on neutral ground - say RI  Smiley

Since this is somewhat of a wiring topic, is " neutral ground" an intended pun?
If so Rob, you are a live wire!

Where would you recommend riding in RI?

Newport is nice but a bit crazy in the summer.  Perhaps one of the western RI rides - http://www.motorcycleroads.com/Routes/Rhode-Island_115.html

Somehow we could work lunch in here - http://www.wrightsfarm.com/restaurant/

Wrights Farm was recommended to me by a local rider.  His routine is Vanilla Bean for Breakfast, Wrights Farm for lunch.  He is a rather large fellow Smiley

Rob

BTW that was an inadvertent pun - I am not that clever.
