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 noise compliance expenditures.
Wiring
The orientation is specific:
  • Look at the pins with the middle L (load) pin on top.
  • 2018+: The orientation should be E- (left), L (center), then B+ (right)
    Most off the shelf relays are oriented with E-, L, then B+, and should connect without modifications.
  • 2013-2017: The left pin should be B1+ (battery positive) and the right should be E1- (battery negative, AKA "emitter").
    The common CF13 relay orientation is appropriate for MY 2018+
    The C14 relay orientation is appropriate for models through 2013-2017 per pacificcricket
    Reversing the wiring can be necessary to adapt a generic relay.
