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.

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.

Hi.
On the 500 the indicator relay is forward of those that are marked in the picture. It's in front of the crossbar, tucked right down behind the forward most plastic shield on the right hand side as you look from the rear of the bike, just behind the headstock, and a real pain to get to.
