Flasher relay

Does anyone know where & how to get to the relay?
I need to change it for a LED unit as I've changed all the lights on the rear end.

I can hear a ticking when switched on behind the fork yolk.

I am not 100% positive, but inside the Headlight housing is basically every wire for the bike. I am pretty sure the relays are in that harness but I can't remember exactly so don't quote me on that.

You could potentially use Canbus LEDs that would eliminate the need to replace that relay as well I believe. I'm not sure where it is as I don't have mine yet unfortunately

I've already changed the lights so those are not an option now.
Strangely enough when I switch the Hazards on, the flash speed is normal.

I will have a look inside the headlight, but sure I'm hearing the flasher ticking somewhere behind it.

The extra current of the hazards is enough for it to cycle properly. I've been in the headlamp bucket several times and don.t believe the relays are in there. Probably under the seat on the right side of the battery.

Yeah the hazard thing is normal. That always happens. But under the seat is what I would be banking on as that's where they would typically be from what I've known and read about Honda bikes.

Went out and had a look. Under the fuel tank (red). And there's a blanked connector nearby (green) and I wonder if that's a power gold mine?

That's the area of the relay ticking sound Anyway. So now we're getting somewhere.
Thanks for the pic
