Default Turn signal flasher question...

I just bought a used 2003 Victory V92C and the turn signals were not flashing... they would brighten (with the second filiment in the bulb), when turned on, but not flash.

I didn't get a manual with the bike but last night tracked down the "module" containing the flasher unit. When I called a couple of local Victory dealers I was told the flasher is not available separately but is built-in to the "module" - an $80-100 part.

After removing the module from its mounting spot I immediately noticed water was dribbling out. So I removed the only end piece that would come off and several more drops of water came out. Then, I pulled out two plastic parts snapped together and sure enough there was a conventional three-pronged flasher unit - "Omron G8-13C-14" plugged into the end.

I dried it all off as much as I could and tried it again. This time when the turn signal was turned on the flasher would buzz and the turn signal bulb would strobe very fast whereas before there was no sound and the filament burned steady.

My question is whether this is indeed a common automotive-type flasher and if anyone's ever had similar issues and fixed with this part.

After getting rear-ended on my Beemer earlier this year by an SUV I want ALL the signal lighting to work on all my bikes.

Thanks!

Kevinx, you wouldn't have a Ford part number would you?

Meanwhile, the original flasher is working - sort of - flashing the signals as it should but at a doubletime pace. This got me thinking that maybe once it dries out completely it might work right again.

With that in mind I put the flasher and the rest of the module - with flasher unplugged - into an airtight bag of uncooked rice last night to let it dry completely. I've used this trick with camera gear and cell phones that have been dunked with some success. The rice acts as a desiccant to pull the last bits of moisture out.

Thanks for all the replies!
