Your flasher unit is behind the headlight nose area. Not the hardest to get too. Did you check the bulbs? Even though chance of all the bulbs being blown are slim. The flasher unit, hang on I'll go get my manual......Ok. The flasher unit like I said is behind the nose. When standing in front of the bike it will be above and to the left of the left headlamp.Hmm? Was your bike up for the headlight reto kit from Buell? Mine got a brighter set of headlamps for free. If your's has been recalled could always ask dealer to check while they are in there. If not it isn't a really hard job but a little tricky.

Here is a link to a nice picture guide that can show you how to do it.

Use a motorcycle specific oil. in your pimary case Either spectro, royal purple, or even HD's branded oil. automotive oils will ruin your clutch due to molybendum-disulfide in the oil as a "friction modifier". The primary oil is drained down by the kickstand and filled through the round hole hy where your shifter foot is when riding.
For engine oil a 10-40 or similar full synthetic is the choice of riders "in the know" but good old dino juice will do the trick too. Engine oil is drained from the bottom of the swingarm and refilled through the cap on top. Many people drain the primary by accident the first time.
check here on the Buell web site for an online copy of your manual. Look under lubrication and maintenance: http://www.buell.com/en_us/owners/manuals.asp

Stand the bike upright (use a swingarm stand or lean against a wall), then poor one quart of oil (I recommend Harley Formula+) into either of the windows on the primary cover. The oil should be just covering the bottom of the gear visible in the larger window.
