Not sure but if you turn on the flasher any one will do you will hear a clicking noise and that is the relay unit you can then zero in on it that way . If the unit is broken and you need to find it to replace it then usually they are under the side covers ,under the seat in the tail section or under the front fairing , and to find this you can look up the manual on line or trace the wiring from the flasher switch or from the flasher bulbs them self

SOURCE: Honda VT500EF, 1983-1988, flasher unit wiring.

The flasher unit is made to flash 12 volts on and off only. The turn signal switch is what is used to direct that flashing 12 volts to the proper signals.
The flasher unit:
First wire is a ground. Middle wire is the send to the turn signal switch. The last wire is 12v positive (with key on). When you flip the switch to the left, it makes a connection between the left turn signals and the middle wire of the flasher unit. The flasher unit then "sees' a load and starts flashing 12v on and off at the middle wire. When you flip the switch right, it makes the connection between the right signals and the middle wire of the flasher unit. Again, the flasher unit "sees" a load and starts flashing.

SOURCE: What type of Motor oil

Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Automotive oil uses different additives and will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Shell Rotella T for diesel engines , both standard and synthetic are JASO MA rated.10w-40 oil is good for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Synthetic oil will make your cycle run cooler and shift easier. For the engine you will probably need four quarts of oil, a spin on filter,and a drain plug washer . Pour in three quarts and check the oil level by placing your motorcycle on the center standard looking at looking at the dip stick. Run the motor and top up as needed. If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading. You will use between 3.2 and 3.4 quarts.
Your final drive uses 80/90 hypoid gear oil. Synthetic hypoid oil will reduce friction and make your final drive run cooler.
