The turn signal ("blinker") flasher is a simple three prong flasher relay.

It's attached directly by a plug so is easily replaced if it fails (or for an LED compatible unit).

Low Noise Revision
As of 2016, the part is revised with the description "low noise".
This suggests reduced electronic and/or audible noise.
This model of flasher relay is noticeably quieter, and that year coincides with reports from Zero management of EU EMF/EMC noise compliance expenditures.
Silent Revision
As of 2020?, the part is from the manufacturer Guilera and makes no audible noise.
This again suggests reduced electronic noise, again likely as a result of EU EMF/EMC noise compliance expenditures.
The orientation is specific. Reversing the (+) and (-) wiring may be necessary if you buy the wrong orientation of relay.
Look at the pins with the middle L (center)(Load) pin on top and the B and E below it to each side.
  • 2018+: The orientation should be E (-) (left), L (center/top), then B (+) (right).
    Ref. report from a 2019S owner
    This orientation is know as a CF14 relay per pacificcricket
  • 2013-2017:
    The orientation should be B (+) (left), L (center/top), then E (-) (right)
    This orientation is know as a CF13 relay
